Cumberland film fest looking for submissions

The Cumberland Mountain Film Festival showcases local "mountain films" that deal with mountain culture and mountain sports (such as climbing, mountaineering, kayaking, mountain biking).

Last year the event was sold out well in advance and the films came in all sorts and sizes, from crisply edited paddling films to wild antics on snowboards.

Film submissions for the third annual Cumberland Mountain Film Festival are being accepted until the deadline of Feb. 14 at which time the review process will begin.

Selected films will receive a free ticket to the event and other goodies. Films can be submitted on a USB key to the Blue Toque, Rider’s Pizza and Tarbell’s Deli. Films should be about three minutes in length and submitted in HD 720p format, if possible.

The submission should include basic information such as the movie title, a brief description, filmmaker, and contact information. The film festival will take place Feb. 22nd at the Riding Fool Hostel.

This event is a fundraiser for Cumberland Community Forest Society (www.cumberlandforest.com), a charitable society dedicated to the purchase of local forests for the enjoyment of all.
