Maui Film Festival

International Film Festival.


Each year, since 2000, the Maui Film Festival has presented five days and nights of under-the-stars Film Premieres, Special Screenings, Festival Tributes, Filmmakers Panels, and world-class Special Culinary Arts Celebrations that include an Opening Night Twilight Reception, Taste of Wailea, Taste of Chocolate, Filmmaker/Patron Brunch, Starry Night MoonDance and/or VIP Party at Spago.

According to the prestigious Hawaii Tourism Authority, the Maui Film Festival is one of only six "Signature Cultural Events" in Hawaii-and the only one that takes place on Maui.

More importantly, from the perspective of filmmakers considering submitting their work for consideration, the Festival has also been hailed as "Hawaii's Answer to Sundance" in the Los Angelel.
