Kumu Kahua Theatre to Host Maoli Film Festival
In honor of the ninth annual MAMO: Maoli Arts Month, Kumu Kahua Theatre and Pacific Islanders in Communications bring you the fourth annual Maoli Film Festival at Kumu Kahua Theatre.
Using the medium of film to share the Hawaiian tradition of storytelling, this film festival presents authentic Hawaiian voice. The Maoli Film Festival gives center stage to Hawaiian film makers and films about Hawaiians.
The festival will take place on Saturday afternoon with an evening of independent films, produced by Hawaiian filmmakers and artists. The films presented will include: 5:00PM: Family Ingredients, Produced by Heather Haunani Giugni and Dan Nakasone Directed by Ty Sanga; 6:30PM: Hawaiian: The Legend of Eddie Aikau by Sam George; 8:30PM: The Haumana by Keo Woolford.

Tickets can be purchased at Kumu Kahua Theatre one hour prior to each seating. Food, beer and wine will also be available for purchase prior to each seating.
