The Reel 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 Australia, Canada, United States and around the world.

With 21 inspiring paddling films shortlisted for the World Tour, including the ten festival category winners, audiences will see hairy whitewater action, sea kayakers exploring remote coastlines, northern river canoe expeditions, international river travel films, motivating environmental documentaries, grueling kayak fishing battles and hilarious short films capturing the lighter side of paddling life.

North East Canoe Club presents the 11th annual Reel Paddling Film Festival at Oxley Shire Hall in Oxley on Saturday 8th October at 7.30pm.

This fantastic event is hosted by the North East Canoe Club, based in North East Victoria.  The club is excited to gather the paddling community together for the event which includes a weekend of paddling action on the beautiful rivers in our region including the King River and the Ovens River at Bright.  The North East Canoe Club is a group of enthusiastic paddlers who enjoy whitewater paddling, canoeing, sea kayaking and canoe polo.  Keen to increase the profile of this fantastic sport, the Reel Paddling Film Festival is a great opportunity to show off the fun and excitement to be had in a canoe or kayak.

Attracting paddlers and outdoor enthusiasts, audiences can expect a fun, social and entertaining event inspired by compelling films like: Martin’s Boat – honoring the legacy of Martin Litton with an expedition in the Grand Canyon.
