If you are like me bears are one of those creatures in nature that you are probably programmed to stay away from but Great Bear Rainforest is an Imax film that may just change your perception of these giant, misunderstood creatures.
Presented by Seaspan and directed by Ian McAllister, Great Bear Rainforest is a splendid film produced by Jeff Turner and executive produced by Kyle Washington and Byron Horner. The film is distributed by MacGillivray Freeman Films, who are known worldwide for their artistry and celebration of science and the natural world. The film is also sponsored by Destination British Columbia.
You can see the film on the big screen but if you can, be sure and check it out on IMAX. The film is currently being shown at the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto and OMNIMAX Theatre at TELUS World of Science.
Canada’s Great Bear Rainforest is home to an immense array of wildlife including the fabled all-white spirit bear—the rarest bear on earth—and the indigenous First Nations, who have provided stewardship of the forest for millennia. The film allows viewers to go deep into the forest with the scientists to learn more about the bear, the rainforest and the Indigenous people who call it home.
“We can’t think of a more perfect fit for this project than Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds,” says director Ian McAllister, who is also Canadian and has lived and worked in the Great Bear Rainforest for 30 years. “Ryan is a wonderful representative for the ongoing conservation of this globally significant rainforest which is part of his Canadian heritage and we are thrilled he will be our narrator.”
