Last Friday night, the Hood River and local paddling communities came out in force to celebrate their own and to raise money for an amazing cause, First Descents! An estimated 250 people ate, drank, cheered for their friends and learned how First Descents can profoundly affect the lives of young adults "Out Living" cancer.
We're already looking forward to next year's event (and hope you film makers are as well) but thought we'd share some of the video highlights from this year's winners! And remember you can always join us in supporting First Descents at firstdescents.org or by volunteering with a camp that's local to you.
The Amateur division winners are:
3rd Place - Dan Patrinellis (this is an edit of the film shown at the Film Fest):
