Maui Huliau’s youth film festival returns to Imua Discovery Garden, May 28
Maui Huliau Foundation, an environmental education nonprofit serving Maui’s youth, will host their annual Huliau Youth Environmental Film Festival at the Imua Discovery Garden in Wailuku on Sunday, May 28 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. This outdoor showing will feature nine short environmental films created by Maui students from various schools over the past school year.
“This year, in addition to our regular after school program, we offered a condensed spring break program and also worked in schools on student film projects,” said Malia Cahill, Executive Director of Maui Huliau Foundation. “So this year’s showing includes films from multiple programs which cover a wide range of issues that affect Maui Nui’s environment and residents.”
Advance reservations must be made on the Maui Huliau website along with a donation of any amount in support of their filmmaking programs.
The showing will take place outdoors in the garden and guests can bring their own blanket or chairs. No alcohol or large coolers allowed. Popcorn and baked goods will be available for purchase. A festival program, parking map, and more information can be found online.
