Extraordinary Arctic: Vanishing Point

Vanishing-Point-web

From the NFB: This feature documentary tells the story of 2 Inuit communities of the circumpolar north-one on Canada’s Baffin Island, the other in Northwest Greenland-that are linked by a migration led by an intrepid shaman.

Adventure Canada is proud to be supporting the amazing Extraordinary Arctic festival at the Canadian Museum of Nature. One of the highlights of the festival is the screening of the award-winning film Vanishing Point tonight, Thursday, April 11th.

Film-maker Steve Smith will be in attendance! (Previous AC passengers may recognize Steve from past trips to the Arctic, along with co-director Julia Szucs.)

Adventure Canada is delighted to be sponsoring the Extraordinary Arctic festival at the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa.

This show, which runs through April, is an amazing opportunity to learn about and experience the Arctic in the sunny south.

Film screenings, talks, exhibits and interactive exhibits offer lots of engagement for grownups and kids alike.

Tonight the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa kicks off the Extraordinary Arctic festival.

Adventure Canada is proud to sponsor this amazing series of events.

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Canadian Arctic Expedition of 1913–1916, the Canadian Museum of Nature is offering various special activities that highlight Northern culture, history and natural science.

Members of the Adventure Canada team will be on hand for tonight’s launch at the Museum. We’re also looking forward to helping host the premiere of the film Vanishing Point, co-created by Julia Szucs, who has travelled with us in the past.

We’ll keep you posted over the course of the festival. Ottawa folks, we hope to see you there.
