Maui Film Festival
June 13-17

Along with the films, star tributes, and filmmaker panels, the Maui Film Festival  at the Wailea Golf Resort is about having a good time, Wailea-style. Aloha wear is the dress code at culinary feasts and star-studded parties that take place throughout the resort. The Celestial Cinema at Wailea is located at the Wailea Golf & Emerald Golf Course, on the amphitheater-like slopes of the golf-course driving range.

Its commanding, 50-foot-wide screen is dwarfed by Maui’s majestic volcano, Haleakala, behind it. In the other direction, Wailea’s hillsides roll seductively down to the beach. Its gentle, natural amphitheater slowly fills with thousands of blankets, beach chairs, and bodies, forming an impromptu jigsaw puzzle on the grass. The Dolby Sound System is crisp and clear as night descends. And then the stars come out.

Three other popular events, the Taste of Summer, the Taste of Chocolate and the Taste of Wailea, are also part of the Maui Film Festival. This is a wonderful event you’re sure to love!
