Film Festival 2018 - Sunday 6th May


Kent Canoes and In-Range Archery Present the Reel Paddling Film Festival


We will be hosting an exclusive film screening of a number of paddling films produced by professional film makers in the evening. 

During the day there will be an opportunity to have a go at paddling and archery (in association with In-Range Archery). 

"Since 2006, the Paddling Film Festival World Tour has been showcasing the very best paddling films. The World Tour screens in more than 120 cities around the world. Join us for this year's best paddling films. You'll be inspired to explore rivers, lakes and oceans, push extremes, embrace the paddling lifestyle and appreciate the wild places"

More can be found out about the Reel Paddling Film Festival here


Entry will be from 10am, we will have free canoeing lessons and a fleet of demo boats for people to try. There will also be the opportunity for people to receive a free archery lesson from our friends at In-Range Archery. This is a chance for people to try something new if you haven't tried one or both of the sports before, there is no previous experience required as there will be instructors on hand to help you get started. For those of you who are experienced in both you have the opportunity to get some practice in and enjoy both on a sunny day (hopefully) on the river bank. 


The Film Festival will start at 9:30pm. There will be an outdoor screen and projector playing a selection of kayaking films provided by the Reel paddle film festival, these include:

Inside the Indus: A white water kayaking film following two of the worlds best kayakers taking on the Indus in Pakistan

Between twin galaxies: Two kayakers and a kite skier cross Greenland to kayak down a river as it forms from two glaciers melting

And if we have time we will show more!
