 Thank you Filmmakers!

For nearly four decades, the National Paddling Film Festival and the volunteers of the Bluegrass Wildwater Association have been hosting an annual competition to determine the best in paddlesport film and still image. From the start, we’ve had one simple mission: donate as much money as possible to support American Whitewater and other river conservation efforts. Since 1983, our team of volunteers have raised over $180,000 organizations dedicated to river conservation and access.
