Adventure. Action. Ocean Life. We set sail for our tour‘s sixth voyage: In November 2019 the International OCEAN FILM TOUR Volume 6 is on its way with the best ocean adventures and environmental documentaries on board. 120 minutes packed with the most inspiring stories from the seven seas and the best water sports action of the year.
The film program has a total length of 120 minutes. There will be a 30-minute break in between. Including the supporting program with the host’s presentation and sweepstakes, one event has a total duration of around 2.5 to 3 hours.
REEL ROCK Film Tour is an annual traveling film festival, highlighting each year a new compilation of outdoor adventure films produced by Sender Films and Big UP Productions.
The films are shown at a worldwide series of screening events, boasting over 500 screenings worldwide. Adventure Entertainment are bringing it to you across Australia and New Zealand this October/November.
2019 marks the 14th year of the film tour.
The most renowned film event on the European outdoor calendar: The European Outdoor Film Tour (E.O.F.T.) came to Australia and New Zealand for the very first time last year, and is back with more this year. We will be showing at the same time as the global premiere before the films are available online.
E.O.F.T. features inspirational protagonists with a heartfelt passion for adventure and the great outdoors. Throughout the programmes of the last 17 years, we've followed one principle: We need no actors, no blue screen, no second takes. Only true adventure. THIS IS REAL.
No script, no actors, no special effects.
E.O.F.T. is seen by more than 250,000 people annually, across 15 countries in 300 locations. Now it is coming to Australia & New Zealand.

For 14 years, 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. We're especially proud of our 2019 film selection and want you to experience them with us. 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. Friends, family, and like-minded paddlers are welcome.
The Women's Adventure Film Tour features some of the world's most inspiring women in adventure. This tour is a celebration of the fantastic women around us who are doing extraordinary things. The films are to be enjoyed by women and men of all ages!
In a global first it was launched to a sell-out crowd in Sydney in May 2017. We are pleased to be now taking the Women's Adventure Film Tour around Australia. This is an extraordinary chance to come and experience a night of edge of your seat outdoor adventuring and story telling.
In our first year, the films for the Women's Adventure Film Tour were sourced from the Mountainfilm festival in Telluride, Colorado. As the tour has grown, we have begun sourcing and developing our own content for the Women's Adventure Film Tour directly with and from film makers. In each location we country we screen, we tailor the films to suit the audience and seek to showcase some films that have a connection to the area.
2019 marks the fifth year of The RunNation Film Festival. The festival is an original, inspiring event that has been attended by running celebrities, thousands of runners and non-runners around Australia, New Zealand & many parts of the world. We receive film submissions from Australia & across the globe and curate it into an incredible two-hour screening. It is not just about running; It is about the celebration of the human spirit, using running as medium of story telling.

On February 5, 2019, live at Toronto’s historic Royal Cinema, the Paddling Film Festival revealed its 2019 World Tour lineup and category winners. Rapid Media and the Paddling Film Festival founder and producer, Scott MacGregor, was the emcee and announce the 2019 film selection. The 10 award-winning and 16 short-listed films will be in contention for the Aqua-Bound People’s Choice Award and will go on to screen in over 120 cities and towns across the United States, Canada and around the world.
"Fifteen years ago I’d completed a readership survey and realized 98 percent of the readers of our magazines were already paddlers. That is why we are here tonight. Our goal is to feed the dreams of enthusiasts and spark the desire of your friends and family, who you’ve dragged here tonight. In the next two hours or so, I’m going to take you climbing and sea kayaking in Greenland, paddleboarding in Nepal, and canoeing up the Inside Passage. And we’ll go fishing and searching for new rivers in Alaska before we close our eyes and paddle in real darkness."
In the next two hours or so, I’m going to take you climbing and sea kayaking in Greenland, paddleboarding in Nepal, and canoeing up the Inside Passage. We’ll visit Hap and Andrea Wilson in Temagami a few hours north in our beautiful province of Ontario and we’ll go fishing and searching for new rivers in Alaska before we close our eyes and paddle in real darkness."
"It should come as no surprise the Paddling Film Festival was inspired by the Banff Festival of Mountain Films. Many of us grew up on it. It also should come as no surprise as the easy adventures like 100-foot waterfalls get knocked off the list, the next adventurers are forced to get more creative. Like for example this team of Swiss/French mountaineers who set off on a 170-kilometer sea kayak journey only to arrive at one of the largest big walls in Greenland. Metrophobiais both the name of their new climbing route and the name of the Winner of the Best Sea Kayaking Film for 2019."
Metrophobia is the Winner of the Best Sea Kayaking Film for 2019
"Beau Miles is no stranger to the Paddling Film Festival. He won the Best Sea Kayaking Film in last year’s World Tour with Bass by Kayak, Bass Strait being the scary puddle of water between the Australian mainland and Tasmania. This year his journey is a little closer to home for all of us. Miles collects rubbish between the commuter train station and his office and makes himself a canoe paddle and the film Junk Paddle. Junk Paddle is the winner of this year’s Best Instructional Film."
Junk Paddle is the winner of this year’s Best Instructional Film
"On the back cover of your program you’ll find three things: Free digital subscriptions forms; sweepstakes entry form to win paddles from Aqua-Bound; and a place to vote for the Aqua-Bound People’s Choice Award. If you forget the name of a film, all films on the World Tour are listed in the Program. We play shortened festival version of many of the films. I encourage you to reach out to the filmmakers to find the full films."
"Ten year’s ago the film Dougie Down the Pet by Justine Curgenven won the Best Paddling Documentary Film. It was a story about a father and his four-year-old son canoeing the whitewater of Algonquin’s Petawawa River.
I was the father and Dougie is my son. This past summer, ten years later, we paddled the Broken Skull in the Northwest Territories with his grandfather because Dougie watched Return to Noatakanother World Tour film and asked me when we could do a trip in the north.
Big World, this year’s Best SUP Film winner is another father-son adventure. The father David Morton says, “We have to keep our kids safe, but we have to teach them to take risks and follow curiosity.” And so the two of them head down Nepal’s Karnali and Bheri rivers.""
Big World Is the 2019 Best SUP Film winner.
"The Passage is another family film; this time the children are all grown up and the brainwashing we do as parents has proven successful. Two brothers restore the original canoes and complete a voyage their father and uncle had started, but not finished, more than 40 years ago. Together they paddle the Inside Passage from Washington to Alaska. The Passage is the winner of this year’s Best Canoeing Film."
The Passage is the winner of this year’s Best Canoeing Film.
"100 Miles is the winner of this year’s Best Kayak Fishing Film, but it could also have been entered into the Best Adventure Travel category. This is not the typical grip and grin fishing movie and it’s not exactly a first descent on an unnamed river. The goal of this Alaskan expedition was to use packrafts to explore and fish a remote braided river system not really accessible any other way."
100 Miles is the winner of this year’s Best Kayak Fishing Film
"For our Best Adventure Travel film of the year, we’re back in Alaska as Frontier of Firsts follows the experiences of a whitewater kayaker and a bush pilot during a kayaking expedition. They have wildly different skills but we find their passions are very similar as they work together to explore three previously unrun wilderness rivers."
Frontier of Firsts is the winner of this year’s Best Adventure Travel Film
"Over the last 14 years we’ve made a few changes moving from VHS to DVD, and last year to digital download and high definition. One of the things we’ve considered but have not changed is touring a 25-film shortlist. Doing so allows hosts to cater their playlists to their audiences and allows me to play something close to home. The environmental documentary Wild Temagami highlights Hap and Andrea Wilson’s relationship with the Temagami Wilderness and the threats the land faces."
