The mission of the Maine Outdoor Film Festival is to “Celebrate the active outdoor community and inspire expression”.
MOFF carries out its mission in three main ways:
1- MOFF is an outlet for Maine filmmakers’ creativity:
Independent filmmakers from all over, but most significantly from Maine itself, are using MOFF as an important outlet for their work: In 2015, over 30 Mainers submitted outdoor films to our festival!
2- MOFF brings outdoor film programing to Maine people, where they are:
Through the MOFF tour, hundreds of Mainers have had the chance to attend a real film festival in their area – featuring films by real Mainers, no less!
3- MOFF’s proceeds support youth in the outdoors:
Since 2013, MOFF has raised funds and awareness for Teens to Trails, a Brunswick-based non-profit which supports Maine high school outing clubs with cash grants, organizational support and programming. MOFF has raised over $3,500 for T3 in that time!
