There are day and evening films being shown at the Mauna Lani Resort from May 12th to 16th. Have a look at ratings if you’re bringing keikis along, at the schedule link below.

A couple years back I attended the Maui Film Festival in Southern Maui and it was a great time, not because I actually knew anyone in attendance but us – but because the films were awesome that year. If you like independent and new film you should head over to the Big Island Film Festival and catch some of the shows. Some are free.

The official Big Island Film festival site is packed with information including a schedule here.

What else is there to do on Big Island today but a film festival?
