Those of you who have run a Rainshadow race know that we’re all about community and celebrating the great community of trail-lovers. We bring the same laid-back enthusiasm  and trail-loving camaraderie to showcasing trail running films of all shapes, sizes, and varieties as we do  to our dynamic and beloved Northwest trail race series. And, like our races, we also showcase great local scenery- local theaters with lots of character that serve beer, alongside a night of great films and good friends.There are a lot of talented filmmakers in this close-knit and extended trail community, and we wanted to create a way to showcase everything we love so much about trail running while simultaneously highlighting local, regional, national, and international filmmakers. Thus, The Trail Running Film Fest was born.About Rainshadow Running:
Rainshadow Running has been offering destination trail races in the Northwest since 2006. We believe no matter where you’re traveling from, you’ll be glad you did. We showcase word-class courses on stunning trails that highlight the best this region has to offer. Every course is unique, beautiful, and tough, and all our races feature a dynamic and organic post-race party, with great food, local beer, and live music!

NEW HAMPSHIRE PREMIERE
Saturday March 28, 8:00pm
Hebrew, French w/English subtitles
(2014) 89 minutes, Comedy
Director: Emmanuel Naccache, France, Israel

On February 18, 2010, in Tel Aviv, the whole world awakes to see front page pictures of Mossad agents killing Mahmoud al Mabhouh in Dubai a month earlier. It was the first time that simple security cameras of a hotel caught secret agents red-handed- what’s more, Israeli agents. But without a doubt, the most surprised of all were the Mossad leaders, the only ones to know for sure that the three men and one woman in the photos had nothing to do with them. From then on, they race against time hoping to understand why everything is aiming at them.

Andrew Pinard: Discovering Magic. Are you the type of person who loves to be surprised; the kind of person that marvels at how remarkable the world is and celebrates the weird and wonderful ways that we experience the world? If so, Discovering Magic is the experience for you! Back for its second year, this “mind-numbing, jaw-dropping, eye-opening” experience takes audiences on a guided tour of the impossible and the absurd. Using only the most ordinary of objects, accomplished actor, conjuror, puppeteer, storyteller, and award-winning performer Andrew Pinard brings the ordinary to life with the most surprising results.

The only show of its kind in the New England, audiences have traveled from Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire to experience sleight of hand, con games, psychology, history, science, comedy, cognitive development, political spin, and more through the eyes of a “perceptual engineer” on his quest to explore distortion and guile.Pinard has been a full-time performer and theatre artist for over twenty-five years. He has presented thousands of performances throughout the northeastern United States as well as internationally in Canada, England, Switzerland, Germany, and Italy. Pinard has been recognized by his peers as one of the finest close-up performers throughout the Northeast and took the top honors in the 18th Annual New England Magic Competition.

Pinard was selected twice as Editors’ Choice for Best Magical Entertainer in “The Very Best of New Hampshire” issues of New Hampshire Magazine.The New Hampshire State Council on the Arts has referred to his “impressive ability with sleight-of-hand.” After attending the premiere episode of Discovering Magic, Rick Broussard, Editor of New Hampshire Magazine, wrote: “Your show is remarkable, Andrew. Anyone who hasn’t seen it owes it to themselves to go.
