Fence Viewer, "the community news and information website for hancock county, maine" has an article written by Letitia Baldwin and posted on 20 January 2012 that's titled "Adventurers Converge for Banff Festival Party."

So, it's a preview of the film festival that features documentaries about the outdoors and adventure activities. After the November festival out in Alberta, the films tour both Canada and the U.S. And for 18 years, the tour has been stopping in Maine. One of the Maine organizers is Mike Staggs. "Originally from Reading, Pa., Staggs wound up in Maine after hiking the 2,181-mile Appalachian Trail at age 17. His trail name is “Eco Warrior.”"
