February 28, 2014—Giant Screen Films is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Wonders of the Arctic
to giant screen and other museum-based theaters. Directed by award-winning filmmaker David Lickley, Wonders of the Arctic takes audiences on a journey across one of the most beautiful and severely cold places on earth, exploring how humans and animals have adapted and thrived for thousands of years in the vast ice wilderness of the Arctic. The film is a co-production of Science North and Giant Screen Films. It will premiere at Science North in Sudbury, Ontario, on March 6th and will be available to giant screen and digital theaters beginning in April.
“David Lickley is one of the great directors of the giant screen format.” said Don Kempf, President of Giant Screen Films. “From his most recent blockbuster Born to Be Wild
to the classic Jane Goodall’s Wild Chimpanzees, David really understands how to combine storytelling and cinematography to make his subjects come alive on the giant screen. And this is of course a natural topic for David given his strong Canadian roots. With a lifelong passion for and strong familiarity with the region, David really captures the immense beauty and wonderful stories of the Arctic like never before.”
Wonders of the Arctic
is available in all 2D and 3D film and digital formats, with 20 and 40 minute versions. The film will be accompanied by an educators' guide with lesson plans tying into standard core curriculums. The film is presented by Fednav, with major funding provided by Raglan Mine, a Glencore company. Head over to Vimeo
