The Maine Outdoor Film Festival’s mission is to celebrate the active outdoor community and inspire expression.

MOFF carries out its mission in three ways:
1- MOFF is an outlet for outdoor adventure and conservation storytelling

2015 Maine Outdoor Film Festival Winners: filmmakers Ross Knowlton and Tim Ouillete

Independent filmmakers from all over, but most significantly from Maine itself, are using MOFF as an important outlet for their work: Since 2013, over 80 Maine filmmakers have submitted films to MOFF. The multi-day Portland flagship event’s emergence as a concentrated hub of outdoor adventure filmmaking activity creates even more opportunity for filmmakers.

2- MOFF brings outdoor film programming to Maine people, where they are

By attending a Maine Outdoor Film Festival screening, thousands of Mainers get the chance to see specially curated outdoor adventure and conservation filmmaking in their area. In 2018, MOFF screened in every county in the state!

3 – MOFF’s proceeds support youth in the outdoors

Teens to Trails hikers
Since 2013, MOFF has raised funds and awareness for Teens to Trails, which supports Maine high school outing clubs with cash grants, organizational support and programming. MOFF has raised over $7,500 for Teens To Trails in that time!
