Northern Forest Canoe Trail Hosts Virtual Film Festival Screenings –


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

“We are thrilled to once again bring the best selection of paddle movies of the year to the NFCT community,” said Karrie Thomas, Executive Director of NFCT. “Whether you’re here for the exploration of secluded tranquil waters or the adrenaline rush of big whitewater waves, the film festival has something for everyone.”

Since its inception, the World Tour Paddling Film Festival has awarded more than $80,000 in cash prizes to filmmakers, and World Tour hosts have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for local charities. World Tour hosts, such as paddle shops, clubs and events, donate proceeds from ticket sales and on-site fundraisers to local causes. This year, viewers can purchase tickets for one of six different movie categories: Lakes, Rivers, Oceans, Adventure, Adrenaline and Culture.
