FREE IN FEBRUARY: Banff Mountain Film Festival 20-21
Virtual for 2021. The Banff Mountain Film Festival is an international film competition and annual presentation of short films and documentaries about mountain culture, sports, and the environment. Presented by Friends of Witherle Library and Castine Arts Association.
Free! Sign up soon! Only 40 spots available. Here are the steps to watch the films.
1) You need a current Witherle library card.
Please contact Anne Romans to request a card. You will need to be in the library’s stated service area (Castine, Orland, Bucksport, Penobscot, Brooksville, Sedgwick, Brooklin, and Blue Hill). Unfortunately, we cannot offer codes to people who are not residents (either full or part-time) in the stated service areas. As tickets are limited we are offering one per household. Please do not share this code.
2) Register for the festival with Anne Romans. She will then provide you with an access code.

Although the BFF films are mostly about adventure sports there are a number of them having to do with interesting cultures and issues around the world.
