The 2Rivers Festival has partnered with Water Docs to bring you two powerful films that celebrate our connection to water and inspire us to protect what we love.
January 31, take a night off and join us in watching these inspiring films about why we love rivers so much.
Film 1: The Canoe
CANADA | 2017 | 27 min
Filmmaker: Goh Iromoto
This film captures the bond between human and nature created by Canada’s well-known watercraft and water symbol – the canoe. Through the stories of five canoeists paddling through different parts of Ontario, the film – gorgeously lyrical in visual composition and narration – underscores the strength of the human spirit and how the canoe can be a vessel for creating deep and meaningful connection.
Film 2: The Peel Project
CANADA | 2016 | 67 min
Filmmakers: Anthony Wallace & Calder Cheverie
Six Artists paddle into the Arctic - A story of Art, Adventure and Canadian Wilderness. In jeopardy of development, The Peel Project highlights the landscape, culture and wildlife of the Peel River Watershed, one of the last intact river systems left in North America.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Films begin at 7.
Location: The Church of St. Matthias & St. James the Apostle
