Paddling Film Festival – 2020 Virtual Edition

December 24, 2020 – April 15, 2021 all day
Virtual Event
$15 USD
Algonquin Outfitters

Algonquin Outfitters has brought you the Paddling Film Festival World Tour, which has showcased the very best paddling films since 2006. The World Tour screens in more than 135 cities around the world each year and is also now available to stream online.

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.
We love coming together for live local screenings of the Paddling Film Festival World Tour. We don’t mean live-streaming; we mean lights, curtains, and popcorn. Our festival will always revolve around them. But this year, we have had to adapt to the Covid-19 pandemic too. As well as in-theatre screenings, we are offering some of our favourite films online, so you can stream them from the comfort of your home.

For 2020 there will be three programs (Adrenaline, Adventure and Culture), each one offers about an hour and a half to two hours worth of films and costs $15 USD for a 3-day rental once you make your purchase.  Gift Cards for any program are also available if you would like to gift them to someone else.

Paddling Film Festival AdrenalineAdrenaline—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.
