YOU CAN GET HERE FROM THERE
The Camden International Film Festival and Points North Forum take place in Camden, Rockport and Rockland, Maine, three of the prettiest coastal towns in all of New England. The age old Maine saying, “you can’t get there from here” need not apply to CIFF. There are plenty of options that will make your trip up the coast easy and enjoyable.
CIFF is reachable by plane, train or automobile (or bus).
Daily flights from Boston to Rockland through Cape Air are easy, quite affordable and offer one of the most spectacular views of the Maine coast. For more information, visit www.capeair.com. Make sure to rent a car from Budget upon arrival (207-594-0822).
If you are feeling a bit old-school and are looking for a way to see more of the state, why not a train? Visit maineeasternrailroad.com for more information. The train makes daily trips to Rockland from Brunswick.
From points south, follow I-95 through New Hampshire and into Maine. Get off at 295 N – Portland. Follow that until exit 28: Coastal Route 1N, Bath / Brunswick. Following Route 1 will take you directly through downtown Rockland, home of CIFF venues The Strand and Farnsworth Art Museum. Stay in Rockland, or continue 7 miles on Route 1 until you enter Camden.
Concord Trailways is one of the best bus experiences in the world. They provide great movies, snacks and water, and even a chance to experience a singing driver. Daily schedules from Boston’s South Station and Portland terminal to both Camden and Rockland. For more information, visit concordtrailways.com.
