Since 2006, the Reel Paddling Film Festival World Tour has been showcasing the very best paddling films. Each year, it’s shown in more than 120 cities around the world, including our own town, Parry Sound! Join us March 4th, 2017 for this year’s best paddling films at The Stockey Centre. These top films will get your adventurous spirit stoked to explore rivers, lakes & oceans, embrace the outdoors, and appreciate the heritage of the wild and wonderful places we paddle.

This is the 7th year of the Reel Paddling Film Festival in Parry Sound. All funds raised support GlobalMedic, a Canadian disaster relief organization of first responders.

Last year, you helped us reach our fundraising goal for GlobalMedic, so as promised, we jumped in Cole Lake! This year, help us raise $5000, and the White Squall and GBBR staff will jump into the icy waters of Cole Lake yet again! Don’t believe us? You can watch the icy plungers here!
