Waterwalker FilmFestival coming to SharbotLake

On Saturday, May 26, Sharbot Lake High School's Outdoor Adventure Program is hosting the 2007 Waterwalker Film Festival as a fundraiser for next year's class. The Waterwalker Film Festival is a tribute to the late Bill Mason, the great conservationist, canoeist, painter, author and filmmaker who inspired so many to enjoy Canada's waterways and wilderness. His passionate and dedicated care to his work resulted in a need to share its beauty with us and to encourage us to promote its protection.

Following Bill Mason's death, Paddle Canada, with the support of the Mason Family, began to organize and administer the Festival. The Waterwalker Film Festival has now become known throughout North America and internationally.


Paddle Canada hopes to sustain Bill Mason's vision by raising support and public awareness for waterway and wilderness preservation through the celebration of these films on canoeing, kayaking, water safety, the environment and the conservation and protection of our natural resources.

Come out for a Saturday night at the movies featuring a selection of short films about canoeing and kayaking suitable for the whole family. Tickets are $10 and are available from SLHS students or by calling the school at 613-279-2131, or at the door. SLHS Auditorium. Doors open at 6 p.m.
