Missed the 2024 Paddling Film Festival? Looking to connect with other paddlers in the community? Look no further! The Complete Paddler will be hosting Movie nights at our store where paddling Film Festival movies will be shown. Showing some of the best paddling films in the world, these movie nights will be entertaining, insightful and exciting! 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.

Showing March 21st 2024:

1. The River of Sorrows: River runners examine how the Dolores River is a flashpoint of environmental injustice and societal opportunity, how mismanagement and politics threaten Colorado’s undiscovered canyon country and the integrity of the entire river basin. (Directors: Cody Perry, Ben Kraushaar, Rica Fulton, Producer: John Weisheit) (NOT SHOWN AT PREMIERE) 

2. A Canoe Perspective: Jamie Barnes travels to Scotland with Canadian long-distance paddler Martin Trahan to paddle a small but formidable circuit in the Northern Highlands. However, a series of tribulations make their expedition even more challenging. This film documents their journey while exploring why canoeing is more than just a form of recreation; it is also a way of finding purpose, identity and perspective in an ever-changing world. (Director: Jamie Barnes) (NOT SHOWN AT PREMIERE) 

3. Mi’kma’ki Gwitna’q Land of the Mi’kmaw Travel by Canoe: For the Mi’kmaq community of Miawpukek First Nation, reviving the birch bark canoe building tradition becomes a way to connect to the past and ensure cultural survival. (Director: Wendell G. Collier) (NOT SHOWN AT PREMIERE) 

4. Save Solace: An environmental group embarks on a canoe trip to investigate the construction of a new logging road set to dissect the Solace Wildlands, the last unprotected and roadless forest in Ontario’s Temagami wilderness. (Director: Matt Steeves) (NOT SHOWN AT PREMIERE) 

5. Near The River: In the tourism town of Livingstone, Zambia, a group of local men who make their living portering kayaks aspire to become safety kayakers on the Zambezi River. Meanwhile, the proposed Batoka Gorge Hydroelectric Power Station threatens to flood the famous Zambezi rapids and eliminate river-related jobs. (Director: Darby McAdams, Producers: Darby McAdams, Rush Sturges) (NOT SHOWN AT PREMIERE) 

6. Checklist: For those who have never been on a kayaking trip, it may seem to be an unattainable task and only possible for professionals. This short informational series describes the simple steps to get yourself on a kayaking trip. (Producer: Pretam Gurung, Barra Liddy) (NOT SHOWN AT PREMIERE)
