review from last year, Kelvin Ekberg, As we say in the orient "same same different different" on the movies. I really enjoyed the ocean kayaking off the coast of Washington tracking Debris from Japan. The last one about the LA river was great. I like the free wheeling flicks , but films with a message are best. Congrats to Charles Allen, epic award! Kelvin

and from Randall Oliver, The last film festival was great! It was kayaking videos that got me fired up when I joined the DDRC twenty + years ago!
