Mountainfilm on Tour, a screening of 20 films, will be held April 12 at the Lincoln Theatre in Damariscotta, and April 13 at the Waldo Theatre in Waldoboro.
The film program is a selection of culturally rich, adventure-packed and inspiring documentary films curated from the Mountainfilm festival in Telluride, Colorado.
On Tuesday in Damariscotta, audience members will see films ranging from an exciting mountain biking short film to a comedic look at National Park Reviews to a film about squirt boating.

Presented by Coastal Rivers Conservation Trust and Rising Tide CoOp, the two events are independent yet complimentary fundraising events.
