Here Comes the Sun.

Here Comes the Summer.

July 6 - 10, 2022


The Maui Film Festival believes in the power of Original Cinema. It's the rocket fuel that ignites our passion, our vision and our mission. As importantly, choosing each year’s Original Cinema ‘jewels’ helps the festival reveal its character, soothe our collective soul and share our finds with the world.


Whether your ultimate goal is to simply and meaningfully share your story with the world, make a living doing what you love, or one day winning an Academy Award®, Spirit Award®, Golden Globe Award®,  Maui Film Festival Audience Award or whatever else.


Or you couldn't care less about awards at all, if you’ve got something to say that’s worthy an audience’s time and attention, and your work can be described as a truly 'moving’ picture.


We hope you choose to submit your work and allow the Maui Film Festival the honor and privilege of considering it for inclusion in the 2022 Maui Film Festival.  And we wish you all the best this time around and in all your future endeavors.

  Right Here. Right Now.

   Long Live Original Cinema!
