Billionaire Larry Ellison has a new plan for the Hawaii island he bought, but needs everyone’s help to make it happen.

He announced in a news release Tuesday that Lanai will host an international documentary film festival that aims to spark conversations for worldwide change by empowering the individual.

The schedule for the inaugural Lanai Documentary Film Festival is set to be announced this fall. The release says the plan is to showcase short and feature-length documentaries and direct participants to take tangible action on issues that will impact the world.

"Lanai DFF is unique in that you can watch a film that will speak to your heart and then be affected by a beautiful, natural setting that reminds us to care for people, wildlife, and the environment," Ellison said.

The main areas of focus are people, wildlife and the planet, but there will also be competitive categories.
