|Dates: Friday July 23 – Sunday July 25, 2021
DUE TO COVID 19, THE 2020 FESTIVAL WILL BE POSTPONED 1 FULL YEAR TO JULY 23-25, 2021. WE ARE A SUMMER COMMUNITY AND TO GUARANTEE BEST ATTENDANCE AND RESPONSE TO THE FESTIVAL AND THE FILMS IT IS IMPORTANT TO US THAT AS MANY PEOPLE WHO ARE AVAILABLE TO ATTEND WILL BE ABLE TO DO SO.
The MidCoast Film Fest brings the audience original movies, long and short, narrative and documentary that are based on a true story or events. From biography to historical fiction it is where history comes to life.
We will be screening the entirety of the festival at the historic Lincoln Theater where movies have been showing since the early 20th century on one of the largest screens in the state. The theater has recently gone through extensive renovations, seats over 200 people and sits smack dab in the middle of beautiful downtown Damariscotta.
Damariscotta is in the heart of MidCoast Maine, one hour from Portland and three hours from Boston. From its world-class oysters and brewpubs to its scenic coastline and with a thriving arts community it will seem like a place born to host a film festival.
As we did our first year we are keeping submission fees low for our second festival to continue to build on last year’s success and to entice filmmakers of all ages from all corners of the country and world to submit.
