Maine Outdoor Film Festival (MOFF): Celebrating and Inspiring Expression in the Outdoor Community Since 2012. Independent filmmakers from all over, but most significantly from Maine itself, are using MOFF as an important outlet for their work: since 2013, over 70 Mainers have submitted outdoor films to our festival! 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. MOFF raises funds and awareness for Teens to Trails, which supports Maine high school outing clubs with cash grants, organizational support and programming. Presented as part of the Trail Town Festival.
