Spring is now fast approaching and Pacific Horizons continues to keep inspiring both paddlers and film festival judges! The Reel Paddling Film Festival choose Pacific Horizons as the "best sea kayaking film" this year. That means the film festival cut, which includes Dubside and the big wave tidal race surfing at Skooks and Okisollo, will be traveling around the world through 2008 as a key film in their world tour festival. We are also pleased to announce that Pacific Horizons was a finalist at Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival and the other film film we entered in VIMFF, 49 Megawatts, won "best environmental film"! The Dubside segment of Pacific Horizons has been very popular with the ocean film festivals, seeing air time at both the San Francisco Ocean Film Festival and the Alaska Ocean Film Festival. And while the festivals are helping us get the word out on the film, we will also be live in the flesh at Canoecopia March 7-9 in Madison, WI and at the East Coast Canoe and Kayak Festival April 18-20 in Charleston, SC sharing stories and chapters from Pacific Horizons.
Lise-Anne and I have been out winter paddling here in Squamish some and we are gearing up for the next film which will focus on the East Coast of North America! Hope everyone is gearing up for another great year of paddling!
