Each year, Water Docs presents our Water Warrior Award to someone who has made an outstanding contribution to protecting and raising awareness about threats and issues facing water. For the last several years, our longtime collaborators, the Student Chapter of the Ontario Water Works Association (OWWA) at the University of Toronto, have partnered with us in presenting this award. This year, in celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the Water Docs Film Festival, we presented the award to Mark Angelo, who over the course of his life, has worked to protect the rivers of the world, created BC Rivers Day, and then created World Rivers Day. This presentation is made possible through our ReSurge Festival event and in partnership with the OWWA Student Chapter at U of T. The film "Last Paddle? 1000 Rivers, 1 Life" is a biography of our 2021 recipient.
