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.

Vanishing Point

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.
As part of the University of Calgary‘s Aboriginal Awareness Week, the Native Centre, First Nations Student Association and the Arctic Institute of North America proudly present the award-winning film Vanishing Point on Tuesday March 12th.

Film-makers Steve Smith and Julia Szucs will be in attendance! (Previous AC passengers may recognize Julia from her videography work on past trips to the Arctic.)
