The Cumberland Mountain Film Festival is still accepting films.

The earlybird deadline for film submissions for the Cumberland Mountain Film Festival is Jan. 31. The film festival showcases local (Vancouver Island area preferred) “mountain films” that deal with mountain culture and mountain sports (such as climbing, mountaineering, kayaking, mountain biking).

All films submitted before Jan. 31 will be entered to win a variety of prizes. Films will be accepted until a final deadline of Feb. 14 at noon, at which time the review process will begin. Films selected to be shown at the event 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 to five 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. 22 at the Riding Fool Hostel in Cumberland.

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.
