The Waterwalker Film Festival pays tribute to the late Bill Mason, the great conservationist, canoeist and filmmaker. Mason once stated, “The medium of film is for me a means of expressing my love and enjoyment of the natural world, and of sharing my concern for what’s happening to it with anybody who looks and listens.” Through this celebration of film, the Waterwalker Film Festival inspires people to be a part of his ongoing legacy.

waterwalkerLocally, the festival is presented by the Regional Paddlesport Centre with the goal of inspiring people to get out there and explore Canada’s great waterways and become more involved in their conservation.

In addition to an evening of engaging films (and draw prizes!), local paddlers/filmmakers Jon and Carrie Nolan will be in attendance to introduce their award winning film Path of The Paddle Water Trail. The ten-minute film documents the Nolan’s “muddy and magical moments” as they made their way across the 1265 km Path of the Paddle water trail.
