Film submissions and silent auction items for the second annual Cumberland Mountain Amateur Film Festival are being accepted until Jan. 1.

Films should be between one and 30 minutes long and have a local outdoor focus. This event is a fundraiser for the Cumberland Community Forest Society, an organization that buys the forest (filled with epic mountain bike trails) surrounding the town of Cumberland and protects it for all to enjoy.

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 and snowmobiles.

E-mail cumberlandmountainfilmfest@gmail.com or visit Cumberland Mountain Amateur Film Festival on Facebook if you have a film or auction item you would like to submit.

— Cumberland Community Forest Society
