SSTIKS FiLM Festival 2017

The First Annual SSTIKS Traditional Kayaking Film Festival

Our entry rules this year were very broad:  short films about “traditional kayaking.”  Traditional kayaking is defined by Qaannat Kattuffiat as keeping the traditional kayaking skills alive. This includes rolling, paddling techniques, kayak building, tuilik making, ropes, and other aspects of the Greenland kayaking culture.
Entries for our festival could include any of the above and/or anything that speaks to or is informed by traditional kayaks and culture.

The top Three films received a handmade Norsaq by Don Beale.  The winner of the People’s Choice award received a beautiful plaque crafted by Tim Gallaway.

Please enjoy the submissions and start thinking about the SSTIKS 2018 Film Festival.

We want your FiLM
