Rapid Media's 5th annual Reel 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.

The Reel Paddling Film Festival is a film contest awarding winning films in nine categories. The winners and other shortlisted films are then toured to more than 75 cities around the world, screening for an audience of more than 20,000 outdoor adventure enthusaists and their friends and families. The World Tour kicks off earlyl February, check the tour schedule for a screening near you.


The World Tour is hosted by paddling shops, clubs and events (and the odd paddler for his 50th birthday party). Hosts usually sell tickets for their local screening and use the World Tour to generate preseason excitement, as a fundraiser or an evening's entertainment for a paddling event or festival.

The Reel Paddling Film Festival is produced by Rapid Media. Rapid Media also publishes four leading paddlesports magazines: Rapid, Adventure Kayak, Canoeroots and Kayak Angler magazines. Your ticket to a Reel Paddling Film Fesival World Tour stop includes a free one-year digital edition subscription to one of the above magazines.
