The NWT Recreation and Parks Association is hosting a Virtual Paddling Film Festival this year!

Rapid Media’s annual Paddling Film Festival showcases the world’s best paddling films to audiences in Canada, United States and around the world. The festival inspires more people to explore rivers, lakes and oceans, push physical and emotional extremes, embrace the lifestyle and appreciate the heritage of the wild places we paddle.

There are three Film Packages to view:
“Adrenaline—is that what gets you out on the water? The stomach-churning thrill of dropping onto a big wave or committing to a big line, of paddling into the unknown in the remote wilderness? These five films celebrate great rivers and oceans, life-defining moments, people who know what it really means to be alive, because they are not held back by fear.”

“Adventure—is it calling? Do you want to escape into the world and explore its still secluded rivers or unpaddled seas? To be alone with the water and, perhaps, some close friends or family? These four films will take you to some of the most beautiful places on earth and provide you with all of the inspiration you need for your next paddling trip.”

“Culture—it is what brings us together. We are rafters, creekers, kayak fishermen and big-wave surfers. We are paddleboarders, whitewater canoeists, and canoe trippers. From all around the world and all walks of life, we share our special love for moving across lakes, rivers, and oceans under our own power. These nine films tell the stories of paddlers and all that paddling can mean to us.

Tickets for each Virtual Film Package are $15.*
