Darby McAdams

Darby McAdams is a filmmaker and kayaker from western Montana. Her drive in competitive kayaking and experience in expedition paddling has carried over into her approach to production. She has contributed to several award-winning projects, including the short films A Baffin Vacation (Mountainfilm 2023), Before I Die, and Paddle Tribal Waters (Mountainfilm 2023), and the Netflix feature film The River Runner (Mountainfilm 2021). Her latest film, Near The River, was made in collaboration with kayak porters who live and work near the Zambezi River in Africa, as the local community there faces the threat of a mega dam proposal. Outside of production McAdams pursues whitewater racing and freestyle kayaking.
