The Paddling Film Festival originally scheduled for March 26, 2020 will be POSTPONED because of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic. Recent state and federal guidelines have recommended communities practice social distancing. A new date has not been confirmed yet but we hope to reschedule the film festival for a date in October 2020.

Join us for this year’s best paddling films. You’ll be inspired to explore rivers, lakes and oceans.

View films about hairy whitewater action, sea kayakers exploring remote coastlines, northern river canoe expeditions, international river travel films, motivating environmental documentaries and grueling kayak fishing battles. The Paddling Film Festival is an international adventure film tour presenting the worldโ€™s best paddling films of the year.
