Arctic Film Collects Awards


Laguna Beach-based MacGillivray Freeman Films’ latest 3D IMAX film, “To The Arctic,” was honored with the two top prizes by the Giant Screen Cinema Association in Sacramento last week.

The film won for short subject and lifelong learning. Voted on by the group’s nearly 300 members, the awards honor the 2012 best films produced for the giant-screen industry. “To The Arctic,” part of MacGillivray Freeman Films’ One World One Ocean environmental awareness campaign, takes audiences on a never-before-experienced journey into the lives of a mother polar bear and her twin seven-month-old cubs as they navigate the changing Arctic wilderness they call home. It is narrated by Oscar winner Meryl Streep and includes songs by Paul McCartney.

The film has grossed $9.7 million in ticket sales since its April 20 release.
