2017 REEL Paddling Film Festival @ McMaster University
Need an Adventure? Now, in March? Yes! As seen at the 2017 REEL Paddling Film Fest Premier in Toronto: Kayak down the legendary Saryjaz River between China and Kyrgyzstan into the mystical cliffs and the Eyes of God; Adventurers are not bound by age - after 35 years, friends in their 70's, return to the Noatak River in Alaska's spectacular Brook's Range and are amazed again at what they find; and don't forget about the Epic canoe trip - six of our American friends go big and touch both the waters in the Gulf of Mexico and the Arctic Ocean; and then we got all Touchy Feely and found out why we love the old canoe with 5 paddlers from Ontario. And, in Hamilton, look out for some SUP (Stand-Up) action, Barbados bound; and we may just hook into a Lunker- kayak style!
When: 7 - 10 pm
Where: McMaster University Ewart Angus Centre 1A1, 1200 Main St West, Hamilton, ON
