WAILEA, Maui >> The 2017 Maui Film Festival opened June 21 in Wailea with actor Connie Britton (“Nashville,” “Friday Night Lights”) honored with the Navigator Award “for carving a path of distinction through the turbulent waters of the entertainment industry.”

Also on hand for the presentation were Freida Pinto (“Slumdog Millionaire”) and Karen Gillan (“Guardians of the Galaxy”), who are due to receive the Shining Star and Rising Star awards, respectively.

Pierce Brosnan will be honored tonight with Pathfinder Award, given to a film artist “whose eclectic choices and charismatic performances encourage us all to expand our definition of what it means to be human.”

The Maui Film Festival runs through Sunday with screenings at three venues. Visit mauifilmfestival.com.
