Join Us In Bringing Movies That Matter
To A World That Needs Them Now More Than Ever
Why We're Reaching Out To You Now
Because for the second time in our eighteen year history,
the Maui Film Festival has decided to explore what
every other film festival in the world knew long ago.
It takes special support from its community to thrive.
Add to this equation, the sea change of challenges to
film exhibition by digitally dominant delivery systems
and, absent dedicated financial community supporters,
any film festival’s vitality would be challenged.
We get it.
Facebook, Netflix, Instagram,Twitter, Google and YouTube,
all have a role to play in contemporary planetary culture.
But we believe that virtual community serves the planet
best when creating face to face, not just virtual, connections.
So we're asking any of you who love great film and,
especially on an island in the middle of the vast Pacific,
appreciate the importance of community building in these
challenging times, to please consider this request for support.
With your help and aloha, the Maui Film Festival will be assured
of its ability to vibrantly thrive not just in 2017, but beyond!
