BRUNSWICK, Maine — Teens To Trails is partnering with the Maine Outdoor Film Festival to bring a variety of films from around the world to two area high schools this spring.

Story continues below advertisement.

The festival visits Windham High School this Saturday, March 15 and Cony High School on Friday, May 16. The films begin at 7 p.m. and tickets may be purchased for $8 on the Maine Outdoor Film Festival event page on the Teens To Trails website or at the door for $10.

Teens To Trails is the 2014 beneficiary of the festival, with proceeds directly supporting programs to benefit high school outing clubs. The schools hosting the film festival  have an opportunity to fundraise at the event.  They also receive a membership to the Association for Maine Outing Clubs and a chance to win a wilderness trip donated by one of T3’s partners.

The Maine Outdoor Film Festival is a selection of films celebrating the outdoor lifestyle. Each film features a story about the outdoors. This year’s selection includes films about the first American to summit Everest, fly-fishing breast cancer survivors in Unity, and Windham alum Asa Reed’s documentary of his outing club’s sea kayak  trip to Saddleback Island, which they received for hosting last year’s film festival. The festival is visiting high schools in an effort to reach more teens and raise awareness in their communities that outdoor experiences are important to life.

The Maine Outdoor Film Festival is now accepting submissions for the 2014-2015 festival. If you have an outdoor adventure film you’d like to share visit http://maineoutdoorfilm.com/ to learn more. Teens To Trails is always looking for more venues to host the festival. If you are a school or small theater who would like bring this exciting event to your community contact T3 Partnerships Coordinator McKenzie Smith at mckenzie@teenstotrails.org.
