2014 Film Festival December 6
Posted on November 18, 2014
This year’s Film Festival was a great success! In addition to a great night of movies and catching up with community friends, over $4000 was raised for Maine Adaptive programming. A delicious spread was provided by The Phoenix and the items available in the silent auction was a nice variety of local and handmade crafts and donated gift certificates and ski gear.
We can’t thank the Sunday River Community Board and The Phoenix enough for hosting this annual event.
The Feature Film this year was “High Ground” http://highgroundmovie.com/Eleven veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan join an expedition to climb the 20,000 foot Himalayan giant Mount Lobuche. With blind adventurer Erik Weihenmayer and a team of Everest summiters as their guides, they set out on an emotional and gripping climb to reach the top in an attempt to heal the emotional and physical wounds of the longest war in U.S. history.
