During the past four years, Barry Rivers, the founder and director of the Maui Film Festival in Hawaii, has been proud as his brainchild developed into a nationally recognized affair with a lineup of A-list films and celebrities. But with competition intensifying for a shrinking stash of sponsorship dollars, Rivers admits that it has been a challenge to ensure that this year's festival, set to run from June 11-15, can grow at an appropriate rate. Fortunately, it seems that nearly everyone who lives or works on Maui is a devoted fan of Rivers and his mission is to bring cinema to the locals and to share the island's uplifting spirit with industry professionals who visit year round.
