International Paddling Film Festival Coming to Sunrift Adventures

Buy Tickets

Sunrift Adventures is proud to present the 12th annual Reel Paddling Film Festival at our store in Travelers Rest, SC on May 6th 2017 from 7 pm.

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 Canada, United States and around the world.

With 20 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.

Attracting paddlers and outdoor enthusiasts, audiences can expect a fun, social and entertaining event inspired by compelling films like:

Bear Witness – With a massive sulfide-ore mining project threatening, Dave and Amy Freeman live for one year inside Minnesota’s Boundary Waters documenting, broadcasting and hosting influential visitors. “It’s up to us to speak loudly for this quiet place”; The Canoe – A reflection of what the Canadian canoe culture looks like today, this short documentary captures a remarkable bond and follows five paddling enthusiasts across the province of Ontario, Canada; Eyes of God – An international team of extreme kayakers plan to descend the legendary Saryjaz River directly into the Eyes of God, a mystical cliff face in the no-man’s land between Kyrgyzstan and China; Labrador Passage – follow two men who set out to retrace a 1905 canoe journey using non-synthetic equipment, blending history and adventure and exploring what it means to be inspired and defeated by wilderness; Sea Kayak Around Ireland – Sean Cahil and Jon Hynes complete their lifelong dream of circumnavigating the rugged coastline of Ireland. Visually stunning, informative and funny, the message is clear: “Drop what you’re doing and go chase your dream adventure!”; Women Outward Bound – fifty years ago girls weren’t allowed in U.S. Outward Bound wilderness school. Find out how 24 women broke that barrier and changed their lives and history forever; SUP Surfing in Barbados – Enjoy white sand beaches, rugged coastline and dramatic landscapes of the beautiful island of Barbados in search of the perfect wave.
