International paddle film festival coming to the Comox Valley

Naviguide Insurance & Employee Benefits along with Vanguard Intellectual are proud to present the inaugural Comox Valley Paddle Film Festival. This great night of films will take place on May 3 at the Cumberland Cultural Centre on Dunsmuir Avenue.

One hundred per cent of the profits from the night of movies will be split equally between the Cumberland Community Forest Society and the Project Watershed and the Kus-kus-sum restoration project.

The Paddling Film Festival is an international adventure film tour presenting the world’s best paddling films of the year – whitewater, sea kayaking, canoeing, SUP, action and lifestyle – in more than 120 cities and towns across Canada, United States and around the world.

From 26 inspiring paddling films shortlisted for the world tour, including the 10 festival category winners, local hosts will choose the best movies for their regions. Audiences will see hairy white-water action, sea kayakers exploring remote coastlines, northern river canoe expeditions, international river travel films, motivating environmental documentaries and gruelling kayak fishing battles.

Attracting paddlers and outdoor enthusiasts, audiences can expect a fun, social and entertaining event.

The Paddling Film Festival World Tour is produced by Rapid Media and presented in Cumberland on May 3. Doors open at 6 p.m. Movies begin at 6:30. Silent auction, food, drink and door prizes will happen throughout the night.
