Giving Back to Rivers. Giving Back to Community.

For 35 years the National Paddling Film Festival has been hosting an annual competition to determine the best in paddle sport videos and images and to support American Whitewater and river conservation. Since 1981 we've raised $158,000 in donations. Contact us to become a donor or sponsor.
