2023 Paddling Film Festival – World Tour Premiere

February 23, 2023 @ 7:00 pm 10:00 pm

The Complete Paddler is proud to host the 18th Annual Paddling Film Festival World Tour Premiere

The Paddling Film Festival kicks off its 2023 world tour with The Complete Paddler hosting the Premiere on Thursday February 23rd, 2023 at 7pm. The Premiere is a special event on the tour as it reveals the winners of each film category, unlike other hosts showing the festival we only play the winners so the films will be a surprise!

We have some amazing door prizes this year included with this ticket! Raffle tickets will be sold separately for $2.00/each or $5.00 for 3 at the cinema. We will announce the prizes soon. One hundred percent of the night’s proceeds will be going directly to Project Canoe, a Toronto-based youth charity program which aims to foster a transformative environment for young people using the outdoors as a primary medium and The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Program – Not all learning happens inside the class room.

The Paddling Film Festival showcases some of the best paddling films in the world. This international competition begins in Toronto, ON, hosted by The Complete Paddler, before beginning its year-long tour across the globe and screening to over 30,000 outdoor enthusiasts and their families. The festival recognizes the best paddling films in a series of categories like best whitewater kayaking film, best canoeing film, best fishing film etc. It aims to inspire 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.
