BAR HARBOR, Maine — The adventure, passion, and pluck of those connected to paddling will be featured at COA on Friday, May 31 during Rapid Media’s Reel Paddling Film Festival, held in Gates Community Center from 7 to 9:30. Known as the “Banff Film Festival of the aquatic world,” these movies focus on the wonders of water and those who enjoy, fight for, travel, study, or just love rivers and paddling.

The award-winning films take viewers from daredevil kayaking exploits to a trek along the length of the Colorado from its mountain birth to its desert demise, miles from the ocean.
