World premiere of Cold Amazon: The Mackenzie River Basin [2014] (22 minutes)

Narrated by celebrated northern journalist Paul Andrew, Cold Amazon brings the massive Mackenzie River Basin closer to home for the many Canadians who may be unaware of its importance, or even its existence. At 1.8 million sq. km, covering three provinces and all three territories, the Mackenzie plays a significant environmental, economic and spiritual role that stretches far beyond its borders. This short documentary highlights the importance and vulnerability of the mighty watershed through the impassioned voices of those who rely on its health and work for its protection.

Tar [2014] (15 minutes)
Using sleek animation and interviews with professionals on the subject, this short documentary weighs the benefits against the potential long-term environmental and economic costs of the Northern Gateway Project; a pipeline proposal which plans to transport 525 000 barrels of Alberta oil sands crude oil per day to Asian markets via the coastal community of Kitimat, British Columbia.

Featuring breathtaking imagery of Western Canada in the heart of winter and music from 2013 Polaris Prize winners, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Tar offers a firsthand look at the pristine ecology put at risk by the Northern Gateway Project, a highly controversial project to transport oil sands crude oil to Asian markets.

How Wolves Change Rivers (2014)

(not Canadian, but too good to pass up!)
When wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park in the United States after being absent nearly 70 years, the most remarkable "trophic cascade" occurred. What is a trophic cascade and how exactly do wolves change rivers? George Monbiot explains in this movie remix.
