Committed to celebrating the outdoor community & inspiring expression since 2012.
MOFF’s mission is to “Celebrate the active outdoor community and inspire expression.”
We do this with:
-A worldwide call for submissions for outdoor adventure shorts, short films and feature films and a juried selection process.
-The Broke and Stoked Video Contest, a short high energy video contest for Maine filmmakers.
-A screening tour of Maine, with a mix of outdoor screenings, theatre settings and educational institutions.
-Promotion and financial support of our non profit beneficiary, Teens to Trails.
-An annual red-carpet MOFF Awards Show in Portland to award the best filmmakers in several categories and recognize the art of outdoor filmmaking.
Awards & Prizes
Every award comes with a plaque and a prize from one of our sponsors.
Film makers whose shorts are selected to run during the festival will be notified in advance.
A jury of esteemed outdoor athletes/filmmakers will select the category winners, who will receive gear prizes from our sponsors. Five audience awards will be voted on by audience members. All winners will be announced the day of the festival.
