Celestial Cinema

"Maui's answer to Sundance!  The Celestial Cinema is a star-studded theater like no other. Patrons sit on thick grass to see films projected on a giant screen under a star-filled sky. Each night's festival showing is preceded by an authentic hula dance and a quick astronomy lesson.  It's the perfect place, in other words, to watch a movie."
— John Horn, Los Angeles Times
presented by Hawaiian Airlines

Location: Wailea Gold & Emerald Golf Course [map]

"An Intimate Conversation with
Louie Psihoyos"

Sat, June 6, 10:30am
Wailea Beach Marriott Resort and Spa -
Mei Court
Tickets & Info >

Get a rare glimpse into the compassion and bravery that drives Louis Psihoyos, the Academy Award winning director of THE COVE and most recently the director of RACING EXTINCTION. Risking his life, and potentially his freedom, Louie travels Earth to protect species in danger of being lost forever while simultaneously spreading word about the breakthroughs now available to turn things around. The solutions are there. The question is whether Humankind has the willpower to take on the challenge posed by the possible 6th Great, this one Humanity-driven, Extinction.

Moderator: Rick Chatenever, Journalist & Screenwriter
GOING DEEP. LIVING LARGE. NO REGRETS.

Mei Court
Tickets & Info >

Four filmmakers — three of them with films honored with a Celestial Cinema Big Screen Debut, and the other one of the producers of a major end of the year studio release — share a treasure trove of production stories and insights to reveal the real deal about producing and directing films where The Forces of Nature always have a co-starring role and many of the best athletes on Earth stretch the limits of human endeavor while pulling off formerly unimaginable feats of freedom and woosh!

Panelists
Devyn Bisson, THE WAVE I RIDE
Jon Long, THE SEARCH FOR FREEDOM
Laura Zeman, THE SEARCH FOR FREEDOM
Chris Taylor, POINT BREAK 2

Changing the world was never easy. Still ain’t. But the filmmakers sitting on this panel — each in their own, focused, beautiful, even stoney ways — are using all the tools in their personal and professional toolboxes to grab the wheel and drive head on into some of most important and buzzy issues of the day. Crowdfunding / Crowdsourcing, Medical Marijuana, growing genuine cosmic consciousness for the Earth’s place in the knows universe among them, they work to change the dominant paradigms of mainstream media with a tsunami of brilliant, original, well produced and directed independent documentaries.

Mikal Jakubal, ONE GOOD YEAR

ONCE UPON A TIME

Sat, Jun 6, 1:30pm
Wailea Beach Marriott Resort and Spa -
Mei Court
Tickets & Info >

Who doesn’t love a great story well told? Not us. We love ‘em. And at the end of the day are very clear that we are in the ‘story’ — rather than ‘show’ — business. This eclectic group of independent films (with more filmmakers also on the panel not yet confirmed at press time) provides a fresh journey through the looking glass into a world where money may be limited but heartfelt, quirky and memorable movie moments live long and healthy cinematic lives.

Panelists
Matt Sadowski, PRETEND WE’RE KISSING
Michael Toubassi, TEAMWORK
Kyle Rideout, EADWEARD
