Mix and Mingle with the Stars at the Maui Film Festival
We’re a proud sponsor of the Maui Film Festival. As such, this is the first post of a three-part series on this amazing event. Look out for the other two blogs later this week, and don’t forget to check out our ad in the festival e-book here.
The Maui Film Festival provides more than great cinema in a one-of-a-kind atmosphere. True, its three venues (Celestial, Castle, and Seaside Cinemas) are some of the more inviting and enchanting movie theaters around. And true, the slate of screenings is eclectic, daring, and, yes, entertaining.
But because of its laid-back vibe and distance from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood, this unique fest, held June 12 through 16, offers filmgoers and filmmakers a chance to interact in ways other fests simply don’t allow.
As writer-director-actor Josh Randor told Variety last year: “Between Q&As and all the press you’re doing (at Sundance), you really don’t have much time to catch your breath.”
But at the Maui Film Festival, there’s plenty of time for interaction—an opportunity owed in part to the array of events orbiting the film screenings. From the Opening Night Twilight Reception (Wed, June 12th, 5:30-7:30pm, Capische? at Hotel Wailea
$150.00) to the Taste of Chocolate (Fri, June 14th, 8:00-10:00pm, Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, $150.00), the fest offers a slew of gatherings for stars and fans alike to mix and mingle.
We had a wonderful time at Sail Away and I recommended Hawaii Hideaway to dozens of people. You were a delight to work with and I will definitely use you again the next time we rent a home in the islands.
Like a Dream
Bliss doesn’t even describe our experience. It was almost like a dream. We are ready to do this again with Hawaii Hideaways – you guys are the best. Everything was perfect!!!
Outstanding Experience From Beginning to End
It was in an outstanding experience from beginning to end, I would work with Hawaii hideaways again in the future unquestionably. Sunny Madeiros was terrific with her recommendations of everything from leisure activities to restaurants and even equipment rentals.

Perfect Combination of Elegance and Comfort
First time to Maui (and Hawaii). This is a spectacular setting and the home is a perfect combination of elegance and comfort. I could stay on the lanai all day long and be happy. Of course there’s a ton of fun activities, but it was great to have Gull Cottage as our base to come back to!

You’re Going to Want to Stay
Our family spent a splendid week in Kauai in early 2017, basing ourselves out of the Touching Green house. It’s in a great location, has everything you need, and is just lovely. The pictures don’t do it justice. You’re going to want to stay!
We had a wonderful time in Kauai! We remained in awe at the unimaginable beauty, both of the rental home, as well as Kauai itself. It will be a treasured memory for life. I hope we can come back and make more memories.
