The Paddling Film Festival kicks off its 2019 world tour with the Premiere on Tuesday February 5th, 2019.

We have some amazing prizes this year. Blu Wave SUP has generously donated a Blu Wave Easy Rider stand up paddle board for our raffle draw. All proceeds from the raffle draw and Festival ticket sales goes directly to our charity of choice, PROJECT Canoe. Raffle tickets will be sold separately for $2.00/ea or $5.00 for 3.

As always we also have some great door prizes that you are automatically entered into with your Festival ticket. Temagami Outfitting has donated a 4 day trip for 2 people including all gear, Salus Marine has donated a PFD, Bending Branches has donated a kayak paddle and The Complete Paddler has donated a rolling lesson.

The Complete Paddler is proud to host Rapid Media’s 14th annual Paddling Film Festival that showcases some of the best paddling films in the world. This international competition begins in Toronto, ON, hosted by The Complete Paddler, before beginning its year-long tour across the globe and screening to over 30,000 outdoor enthusiasts and their families. The festival recognizes the best paddling films in a series of categories like best whitewater kayaking film, best canoeing film, best fishing film etc. It aims to inspire 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.
