Mahalo to Our Sponsors and Partners:



Welcome to the Ko Olina Children's Film & Music Festival.

In this age of technology, film and music continue as major mediums for creative expression, entertainment and education. The children of Hawaii are the beneficiaries when provided with a proper balance of artistic outlets, learning opportunities and - just plain fun.

Ko Olina was envisioned as a getaway retreat for families from around the world. Safe, clean beaches, wide open spaces and endless recreational activities combine to provide the perfect environment for quality time with family and friends.

Mahalo to our partners, sponsors, volunteers and participants for contributing to this "Celebration of Joy." On behalf of the Ko Olina Resort Association, enjoy the day!
