Nanuq Documentary  Best feature at Environmental Film Festival 2021


Our second documentary “Nanuq, An Arctic Journey from Past to Future” was voted BEST FEATURE FILM for the 2021 season of the Environmental Film Festival in Los Angeles, a showcase of environmentally themed films and screenplays from around the world.

Our Sunday afternoon was enlightened by these fantastic news with an e-mail from the Festival organizers. It is a great pleasure to share their message with you:

“It was an honor to showcase your film at our festival. This was our 32nd private festival because of the shutdown. People were able to watch the films at a cinema in their area and then comment on the films. We attempted to give you a wide array of people to watch and comment on your film. Some of our frequent attendees to the festival, and film professionals who are honored to view and comment on your terrific film during this time”.

Polarquest’s own Paola Catapano was also featured in the festival’s podcast “WILDsound”. She discussed the expedition’s international team of scientists, explorers and science communicators, and described how the team paid homage to a lost past and tried to give hope during an uncertain future.
