FUNDY FUN
Humpback whales inches from your kayak or multiple beat downs at the Walton ‘Whopper’—these are some of the contrasting experiences captured on camera in Nova Scotia’s Bay of Fundy. Join top sea kayakers taking on the world’s largest tidal range, carving it up in the chocolately rapids of the Shubie River and seeing how long they can hold their breath in the meaty hole at Walton. Local paddler Chris Lockyer hosts Matt Nelson, Jaime Sharp, Justine Curgenven, Paul Kuthe, Sean Morley, Ryan Rushton, Rowan Gloag and Nick Cunliffe.

HAVE KIDS, WILL PADDLE
If planning the next family vacation makes you sweat, settle in for a 3,400-kilometer, three-month family canoe journey from Jasper, Alberta, to the Arctic Ocean at Tuktoyaktuk, Northwest Territories. Dan, his wife Alice Young Clark, with their kids Koby, age five, and three-year-old Ava Fei, left their jobs, home and community behind for a 100-day northern adventure. “We go on wilderness trips to escape our civilized world, to strengthen our family bond, and to get grounded in nature,” explains Clark.

STAND
STAND, presented by Quiksilver Waterman, takes viewers on a journey through the waters of British Columbia’s west coast. Under threat by?the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline and tanker route is?a coastline of immense beauty, pristine ecosystems, and a way of life rich in culture and history. Through the efforts of expedition standup paddler Norm Hann, an aboriginal high school class building their own standup paddleboards as a form of protest, and the powerful surfing of iconic west coast native Raph Bruhwiler, the diversity of people, landscape and wildlife that would be affected by an oil spill is articulated. STAND takes you to the core of the issue and unfurls the soul of B.C.’s west coast, one paddle stroke at a time.
Director and Producer: Anthony Bonello and Nicolas Teichrob

Witness the danger through helmet-mounted cameras as Trip throws fear aside and drops into the unknown world of kayakless kayaking.
Director: John Dabrowski | Producer: Mark Odlum and John Dabrowski Website: www.smartdepartment.com

KITTURIAQ
In the summer of 2012, Frank Wolf and Todd McGowan attempted?a 620-kilometer journey by canoe from Nain, Newfoundland, to Kangiqsualujjuaq, Quebec, via a new route over the vast tundra of the Labrador Plateau. A local mosquito, named Malina, tags along and narrates the film as the quirky pair journey though this little-known region of the north. With good humor and a dash of performance art, they endure a myriad of whitewater rapids, mountain portages, and clouds of mosquitos and black flies. Much more than an adventure film, Kitturiaq (which means mosquito in Inuktitut) shares the perspectives of the Inuit and Innu people who have called this land home for thousands of years as they face the challenge of balancing their traditional ways with the demands of the modern world.
