In early 2012, Maine business-owners (and raft guides) Nick Callanan and Joe Christopher talked about wanting to create a Maine event where film and the outdoor lifestyle converged; a festival celebrating Maine's broad array of beautiful places, recreational opportunities and creative people.
Later that year, on August 25, 2012, in The Forks - Maine’s outdoor adventure mecca - the Maine Outdoor Film Festival came to life. The grass and picnic tables were packed with over 200 people, laughing and gasping as the big screen lit up with local adventurers' storytelling. Nearby, a bonfire blazed while local craft beer and sandwiches satisfied the palettes of attendees.
