What does adventure mean to you? For the stars of the Adventure 2022 virtual program, it’s canoeing the first recorded descent of a little-known river in Northern Quebec’s remote polar tundra in Following Lines; and the risks of whitewater kayaking with crocodiles on class V endangered rivers in Kwanaza: The Drowning Diamond of Angola. Adventure is the burning curiosity keeping us sea kayaking around the Next Headland. Adventure can also be found in the mundane tasks of everyday life, just ask award-winning Australian filmmaker Beau Miles as he undertakes a four-day commute to work kayaking down a forgotten childhood river. Rent the Adventure 2022 virtual program and enjoy three hours of entertainment and seven of the best paddling films of the year.

The Adrenaline 2022 virtual program showcases paddlers exploring the edge of their skills while pushing the limits of what is possible in kayaks, canoes and rafts. Aniol Serrasolses takes us whitewater kayaking over jaw-dropping 60-foot waterfalls in the land of fire and ice in the award-winning film, Jötunn. Go sea kayaking and fight the internal battles we face when challenged by something filling us with the sense of pure excitement in My Dear Fear. These are the heart-thumping moments we crave and fear. Then there are uncomfortable moments of anxiety necessary to push us past bigger challenges like ensuring the paddling industry is more inclusive, as whitewater rafter Ash Manning does in All Bodies. Rent the Adrenaline 2022 virtual program and get your pulse racing with these 11 breathtaking films.

The Voices 2022 virtual program could also have been called People, Culture or Stories. These 11 inspiring films are the voices of real people putting paddling at the core of their lives. The award-winning documentary Sheri is the journey of the incredibly strong entrepreneur leading the way within the male-dominated packrafting industry. Voice Above Water shares the story of a 90-year old Balanise canoe fisherman cleaning the ocean of plastic pollution and fighting to keep his traditional way of life. And on a lighter note, there’s always time between rapids in the Grand Canyon for joking and celebrating traditional wooden boats in the film, Dory Land. Rent the Voices 2022 virtual program to hear these stories and eight more in more than two hours of enlightening films about real people who care.
