canoe1.jpgThe fabulous Paddlers Film Festival presented by the Northern Forest Canoe Trail [NFCT] will inspire you to head outdoors for the open water, vessel in tow.

This year's festival features four documentary films and a claymation short covering a range of recreational themes such as exploring the Inside Passage, to finding record whitewater kayak waterfall runs.

The festival will be in Portland, Maine, on April 15 at One Longfellow Square, and costs just $12 in advance or $15 at the door -- doors open at 6 p.m. with a cash bar, and movies follow at 7 p.m. The annual festival raises money for the NFCT programs and stewardship activities along the 740-mile canoe and kayak waterway that connects rivers, lakes, ponds, streams, and portage trails throughout New York, Vermont, Quebec, Maine, and New Hampshire.
