Host the NPFF in Your Town!


NPFF Roadshow

Although the NPFF competition is in Kentucky, don’t worry because the best of this innovative festival can come to you! By holding a National Paddling Film Festival Roadshow your group can enjoy quality paddlesport films while painlessly fundraising for your own local projects as well as helping us further our efforts with American Whitewater and other conservation and access charities.

How It Works

A paddling club, conservation organization, university, philanthropist, or commercial outdoor enterprise donates $200 to the NPFF in exchange for 5 Hours, which is 300 minutes of paddlesport, mostly whitewater video. We provide the entertainment and you do the rest. Sounds simple, it is simple. All we ask in return is for a contract, credit card deposit, a little advertising, and that you be a good organization/person doing good things. The videos come from the NPFF’s extensive paddlesport library covering amateur and professional entries from 24 years of festivals. Most of our films are on DVD and VHS. The Roadshow has seen several dozen cities in over 18 states, Canada and Europe. Thousands of dollars have been raised for local organizations and the programs they support. So, go find an independent theater, college/university, or any other film friendly event, snatch up some sponsors (optional) and contact us with a date and we will tell you what is available.

Don’t Need Five Hours Of Video?

We will package up 2 hour mini-shows for $100 plus overnight shipping. We also offer a sliding fee option for special needs organizations. We would like to send a big thanks to all videographers and video artists who have graciously allowed the NPFF to showcase and market their films for waterway conservation.
