Film + Education

Over the next five years we’ll bring stories to you and millions around the globe in an all-out effort to change how people perceive and value the ocean.


Using Motion Pictures To Inspire Change


We are doing what we do best: visiting all the world’s oceans to capture the amazing stories unfolding there in big, beautiful motion pictures. Over the next five years, One World One Ocean, in collaboration with MacGillivray Freeman Films, will produce three 3D IMAX films, an 8-part TV series, a 3D theatrical documentary, and continually updated online videos — all designed to build awareness and inspire people to take action to protect the ocean.

First Up: To The Arctic 3D


The first film presentation of One World One Ocean is the new IMAX® film To The Arctic 3D, a co-production from Warner Bros., MacGillivray Freeman Films, and IMAX Corporation. The film follows a mother polar bear and her two cubs as they navigate the changing Arctic wilderness they call home. To The Arctic 3D premieres in IMAX® theatres in 2012.



Sneak preview footage from To The Arctic 3D can be seen in the new Arctic Home campaign from Coca-Cola and World Wildlife Fund. One World One Ocean is proud to support the Arctic Home initiative—a bold new effort that is raising awareness and funds for polar bear habitat conservation. Learn how you can help protect the polar bear’s Arctic home.


Upcoming Expeditions: One World One Ocean will be filming on Cocos Island in late November. Check back often for updates and field reports.
