Maine Outdoor Film Festival Earth Day Event

Great group of volunteers!
MOFF’s Nick Callanan introduces the lineup, including the #WEOUTSIDE Borealis segement.

MATLT was lucky enough to be the featured nonprofit for the Maine Outdoor Film Festival’s Earth Day screenings! This event, held with Northern Forest Canoe Trail, featured several thoughtful films which focused on paddling, farming, and the plight of indigenous First Nations in Canada. There was an undertone of sorrow in these films which, while celebrating the humanity and community around some of these rivers, also dealt with the changes we have inflicted on our planet. Great films, lots to think about.

We were fortunately enough to also have the #WEOUTSIDE Borealis segment screened also, since we always want to reach new audiences about this great program. And finally, the sales of beer brought in donations for the High Peaks Initiative program, which is focused in conservation and recreation in Maine’s High Peaks (around the A.T. near Sugarloaf and Saddleback).

Thank you to everybody who attended and to our super volunteers!
