We look forward to seeing you at our 10th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival!

Friends of Casco Bay is delighted to host the Wild & Scenic Film Festival on Tour at University of Southern Maines Abromson Center for the 10th year! Wild & Scenic is a festival with a purpose as we bring together story-tellers and stories that reflect a love and appreciation for the natural world.

We expect this years films will make this a great event for children 10 and up, as well as adults.

NEW THIS YEAR: Buy a VIP ticket and join us at the 10th Anniversary Reception with OChang Studios
As we celebrate our 10th year hosting the Wild & Scenic Film Festival On Tour, we invite you to join us at a special reception with OChang Studios, an award-winning, Maine-based animation team led by Hanji Chang and Andy O'Brien. OChang Studios uses humor and serious science to tell stories on how our environment is changing. At the reception, Hanji and Andy will share their storytelling process through a pecha kucha-style slideshow. We will show one of their films and offer a question and answer session so we all can learn more about how they approach their work. The reception will also feature a cash bar and free snacks.

The 10th Anniversary Reception will be fun and informative and will give us all added insight as we watch the films chosen for this years Festival. VIP tickets allow you to pick out the best seats in the house as the Reception will take place from 2 to 3 p.m., immediately prior to the opening of the Film Festival.
