Northern Forest Canoe Trail hosting virtual film fest screenings

The Northern Forest Canoe Trail (NFCT) is hosting virtual screenings of the World Tour Paddling Film Festival. The annual festival showcases the very best paddling films of the year ­­and is now screening in living rooms everywhere. A portion of proceeds from ticket sales benefits NFCT stewardship and programming.

“We’re excited to once again offer the year’s best selection of paddling films to the NFCT community,” said Karrie Thomas, NFCT’s executive director. “Whether you’re in it for the exploration of secluded quiet waters, or the adrenaline rush of big wave whitewater, the film fest has something for everyone.”

Since its inception, the World Tour Paddling Film Festival has awarded over $80,000 in cash prizes to filmmakers, and World Tour hosts have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for local charitable projects. World Tour hosts, such as paddling shops, clubs and events, donate proceeds from ticket sales and on-site fundraisers to local causes. This year, viewers can purchase tickets for any of six different film categories: lakes, rivers, oceans, adventure, adrenaline and culture.
