The Rigors of Scientific Filmmaking in Antarctica

With bitter cold, rough seas and howling winds, making scientific documentaries in Antarctica is no simple task. This panel of filmmakers, producers and photographers will talk about what it takes to capture one-of-a-kind wonders – from life under the sea ice to penguins and dinosaur fossils — in one of the most unforgiving, inhospitable places on Earth. Antarctica in particular provides a unique opportunity to show how science and filmmaking can be an inspiring and collaborative process fueled by raw curiosity. Get a truly special glimpse of one of the farthest reaches of the globe with new footage and clips from newly released IMAX films.
