TRUST THE UNIVERSE. CREATE THE FUTURE.
We Love This Photo. It Perfectly Captures the Reality of Life on Earth. All of Us Always Living on the Razor’s Edge of a Vast Horizon of Possibilities. We Encourage Everyone to Look Deep Into What Matters Most to Each of You. Be Clear That the World Our Children and Grandchildren Will Inherit Is Up To Us. And We Should All Take Great Pride in Whatever Meaningful Contribution We Make.
What the World Needs Now
We believe that children are the future who from an early age, and throughout their lives, need to explore their creativity and share it with the world.
That’s why, now more than ever, amidst the haste and complexity of modern life lived in an increasingly digital landscape, we encourage parents, teachers and mentors everywhere to demand young people have time to fall in love with art, music and, of course, cinema.
Life well-lived also needs to understand the joy of the natural world. It fertilizes the embracing of higher love, compassion and empathy for all humankind and all creatures of the Earth, Sea
The Maui Film Festival is thrilled to share the insightful and beautiful sentiments expressed by artist Fred Babb with you. Fred got it right.
P.S. We're Dog People
Meaning no offense to Cat, Horse, Rabbit or Goldfish People, We are Hooked on the Chill and Zen of Dogs. Especially, Our Dog ChewQi, the 'Spiritual Advisor’ of the Maui Film Festival since 2000.
ChewQi lives in the Moment, Serves Up Totally Unconditional Love, Stays Calm on the Festival’s Most Frenetic Days and is Always There to put a Smile on our Faces.
She is also a Living Breathing Reminder that, it is Humankind's Responsibility, as the Stewards of Life on this Precious Planet We Call both Earth and Home, to Treat All Beings with Empathy, Compassion and Aloha.
What better way to live your life.
