Although the Maine International Film Festival is winding down, the Atlantic Music Festival is still gearing up. The latter has nine more days to go, with concerts with concerts nearly every evening and on some afternoons too. All concerts will be held on the Colby College and will have free admission.
There is still a lot to see in the last three days of the 20th annual Maine International Film Festival. The final weekend will bring the visit of a leading independent film director, screenings of several worthy but neglected vintage films, a competition for Maine's youngest filmmakers, a compilation of shorts by older Mainers, an interactive audiovisual exhibit, and a closing night documentary about the influence of American Indians on American popular music.

Since then the trail had gone cold and we all assumed the ghosts would not be so bold again. It appears that we were wrong.
