National Parks Project

National Parks Project is a collaborative film, music, TV and new media project on Canada’s National Parks. Like never before.

In 1911, Parks Canada was founded, becoming the world’s first national parks service. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Parks Canada is the launch of National Parks Project, a new interactive and collaborative film, music, TV and new media project that features an unprecedented collaboration by more than 50 of Canada’s most acclaimed filmmakers and musicians.

In the tradition in the Group of Seven, Margaret Atwood’s Survival and other cultural touchstones, the National Parks Project aims to explore the elemental ways in which Canada’s cultural imagination is shaped by the wilderness that defines our identity, and the technologies that inform our day-to-day lives.

From May to October, 2010, the project sent groups comprised of one filmmaker and three musicians to a park in each province and territory, to collaborate on a short film and soundtrack that reflects their experience of the landscape. The result is a collection of 13 films that showcases both the country’s natural diversity and the breadth of its artistic talent, and celebrates the spirit of creative collaboration. The complete collection of films is available online via an immersive interactive website.
