From the Film Festival Crew-

For 14 years, the Paddling Film Festival World Tour has been showcasing the very best paddling films. The World Tour screens in more than 120 cities around the world. We’re especially proud of our 2019 film selection and want you to experience them with us. Join us for this year’s best paddling films. You’ll be inspired to explore rivers, lakes, and oceans; push extremes, embrace the paddling lifestyle, and appreciate the wild places. Friends, family, and like-minded paddlers are welcome. We hope to see you there!

Check out the 2019 feature films here.

A Note From your Host: I am super excited to help create an opportunity for our Northwest paddling community to come together under one roof in Bellingham; to celebrate the abundance of water we have in our backyard. The diversity of our paddling community is incredible! From surf skiers, to sea kayakers, whitewater paddlers, outrigger clubs, junior racers, SUPers, kayak anglers, slalom boaters, and casual lake paddlers: there is truly something for every paddler here in Bellingham. My goal in hosting the World Tour Paddling Film Festival is to inspire each of us across our paddling disciplines on land, so we can dream big and enjoy the freedom of the water in our craft. Not a paddler yet? Have you been waiting for the right moment to say YES to paddling, and get in a boat for the first time? I hope to spark that sense of a greater self when watching these amazing films that have been produced all over the world. I hope you laugh, cry, and keep that jaw dropped; the way I did when selecting the films to show here. We are all in this together, protecting our water, playing in the places we love, and sharing in epic (and not so epic) journeys with the ones we love. I hope you all can join me and the Moondance Kayak Adventures team in celebrating the 2nd annual Bellingham screening of the World Tour Paddling Film Festival presented by Rapid Media - I know you won't regret it! Big thanks to all the film crews and participants for inspiring us all! For the love of water - let us celebrate! Kristi Kucera | Owner/Guide | Moondance Sea Kayak Adventures
