Akina Tours Free Shuttle Service for Maui Film Festival Attendees
Are you planning on attending this year’s Maui Film Festival? If you enjoy cinematic creativity composed by passionate filmmakers to reach a diverse audience, you won’t want to miss it. This is one of the island’s most popular annual events, owing to the authenticity of the films, the guests, and the attendees. The Celestial Cinema is definitely the event favorite. Imagine yourself settling onto the lush green of the Wailea Gold and Emerald Golf Course under a starlit sky to watch films projected onto a 50′ solar powered screen. Relax and enjoy films that are as exceptional as the natural beauty that surrounds you.
How do you get there? You’ll make your way to the Wailea Resort Event Parking Lot at the top of Wailea Ike Drive. Once you’ve parked we will provide you with free shuttle service to and from the venue. We’ll keep our comfortable and spacious Van Hool Motorcoaches running continuously to and from the venue throughout the event, starting at 6:15pm, so all the attendees can get back and forth quickly and with ease. That’s our business at Akina Tours, and we enjoy providing this service to the wonderful folks who will be coming to the Celestial Cinema and the Taste of Wailea event, which will kick off the film festival on June 15th.

- Alex & Eve
