Dateline: December 2, 2003: FirstLight™ Academy Screenings on Maui Schedule

Aloha and Happy Holidays,

Hope those of you who live on or are planning on being on Maui for the Holiday Season are getting in the mood for great movies because that's just what we have comin' your way, a showcase of 46 films in 13 days, the best films of all of 2003 and early 2004.

The entire schedule for these FirstLight: Academy Screenings on Maui is posted on our website. When you get there, just click on FirstLight: Academy Screenings on Maui to be linked to our final schedule. You'll also find links to official sites and trailers for most of the films.

As always, the Maui Film Festival provides Complimentary Admission to any FirstLight™ screenings to all current and active members (including one guest per member per film) of AMPAS, DGA, WGA, SAG (Nominating Committee Only), HPFA, PGA, ADG, ASC, BAFTA-LA, BAFTA-NY, CDG, MAHG, MPEG, MPSE, VES, ACE and CAS.

Guild Members ONLY, please RSVP by phone to 808.579.9553 or email to firstlight@mauifilmfestival.com. For everyone else, single tickets ($10) for FirstLight™ films will be available one hour prior to show time on the day of the show. The Maui Film Festival's FirstLight™ 4-Film VIP Fastpass™ ($40) is now on sale at Borders Books & Music and at the MACC Box Office.

These passes are a great way to save time wating in line and also being admitted into the theater because of the special FastPass™ entry line that we set up for FirstLight™. Plus, they make great holiday gifts and, unlike our regular CandleLight Cafe & CInema pass, allow you admission to four films of your choice or, instead, to bring as many people to any show as you have "clicks" on your pass. For example you and your spouse and two of your kids or neighbors or whatever.

And yes, just like last year, rather than have to exit and get to the end of the line if you plan to see two (or three or four or five!) films in a row, FastPass™ holders will also be able to stay in the theater and quickly return to their seats before people waiting in line outside the Castle Theater are let into the next show.

Trust us -- the FirstLight™ 4-Film VIP Fastpass™ is a SMOOTH way to navigate your way through FirstLight™.

ONE MORE THING: Passes are now also on sale for the 2004 Maui Film Festival at Wailea. For details visit our Maui Film Festival at Wailea website and click on Buy Passes for 2004 Now! And if you've never checked out the Maui FIlm Festival at Wailea "trailer", it is also on the "Wailea" portion of the site. Just click on the "Festival Trailer" icon to view it (in Quicktime).

Hope you can carve out some time from the busy Holiday Season to enjoy our offerings and most of all, hope that you and your family enjoy a healthy, prosperous and peaceful 2004 & Beyond.
