For the past three years, Pacific Wild's executive director Ian McAllister has been directing an IMAX film about the Great Bear Rainforest. Great Bear Rainforest tells the story of one of the rarest animals on Earth—the fabled all-white Spirit Bear.

"I feel incredibly fortunate to have worked alongside so many talented, dedicated individuals who have all contributed to this enormous project." says Ian McAllister. "In particular, the patience, wisdom, humour and support of so many members of the Heiltsuk, Kitasoo Xaixais and Gitga’at Nations."

These remarkable creatures live in the lush temperate rainforests of Canada’s West Coast, where they hold almost mythic status among the region’s indigenous people. Shot exclusively for the giant screen, Great Bear Rainforest will offer a remarkable journey into one of the planet’s most spectacular wildernesses—a land of wolves, grizzly bears, humpback whales, sea lions, sea otters and others—as it explores the secret world of the Spirit Bear.

The film is distributed by Macgillivray Freeman and set for release in February 2019.
