Back in 2003, Leo and Jan Sears traveled from their home on the Big Island of Hawaii to neighboring Maui to attend the Maui Film Festival. That’s where they became inspired to start a film festival of their own.
“We were sitting with the film commissioner from the Big Island and we said to her, ‘We really need something like this,’” Jan recalls.
“The commissioner answered, ‘Well, all it takes is someone to do it.’ Now, you don’t just say something like that to Leo. We’ve organized lots of events before. So we figured we’d start small and see what happens.”
