ROW, ROW, ROW YOUR BOAT: Filming took place in a variety of locations worldwide.

As summer approaches, it’s about time to be inspired to get out of the city (and out of your bed) and explore nature and your local watering holes. This year’s Reel Paddling Film Festival will take place at Westbrook Supply Co., hosted by Paddle4Tomorrow, a nonprofit organization working to foster appreciation between young people and the planet. Films range 2-35 minutes and include canoeing, kayaking, whitewater, and SUP (not much, what’s up with you), AKA stand up paddle boarding. Meander along rivers, coast atop lakes, and endeavour across vast oceans with films cinematographic images and you may just feel the need to get your own SUP on. Tickets include a local pint, a raffle ticket, and 100 percent of proceeds benefit Paddle4Tomorrow.

$20-$25. 7:30-10:30 p.m. Sun., June 3. Westbrook Supply Co. 1240 Chattahoochee Ave. N.W. Suite J. paddle4tomorrow.org/events/2018/6/28/reel-paddling-film-festival. 678-358-8750.
