Thank yous owed: A LOT  >>>

 

Thanks to the sponsors without whom none of this would have happened... these are the successful companies using their resources to support outdoor filmmaking and youth in the outdoors! Yay them.

Thanks to the filmmakers whose vision, expression and storytelling inspires us to go to our special places and recreate or be still... keep up the great work!

Thanks to the tireless jury of volunteers who pored over the hours and hours of submissions to select the films - and winners - of MOFF 2017... and the other volunteers who helped with setup at the venues and postering. Now, how can we help you guys!? (seriously, let me know)

Thanks to the venue operators and local organizers who brought MOFF to their town and rustled up local interest.

Thanks to the MOFF fans who spread the word both online and the old-fashioned way, and who attended the screenings! (if a film is screened in the forest and no one sees it, does it make a sound?)

And finally, thanks to the relatives of the MOFF production team for putting up with our long hours away from home as we put the time in necessary for this passion project to grow (let's go hiking this weekend, family!).
