cumberland mountain film festThe fourth annual Cumberland Mountain Film Festival, held on February 27 and 28th, was a huge success.  Tickets were quickly sold out to an eager crowd who enjoyed a selection of outstanding short outdoor sports and adventure films from Vancouver Island.  This year, thirty-four films were submitted and the festival judges selected just 16 films to be shown at the festival. The Festival raised a record $3,100 for the Cumberland Community Forest Society 

Big huge thanks for Genevieve Burdett and her awesome team of volunteers for rocking this event! It’s was so fun and we’re sure it will keep growing! We signed up over $500 worth of new monthly donors over the two nights of the event – and that’s on top of the funds raised through ticket sales!
