September 18, 2018—Tandem Stills + Motion and Giant Screen Films are pleased to present the industry premiere screening of Hidden Pacific on September 23, 2018, at the upcoming 2018 GSCA Conference in Chattanooga. The film will launch globally in museum, zoo, aquarium, giant screen, and IMAX® cinemas in April 2019, to coincide with Earth Day weekend.
Hidden Pacific takes audiences to the faraway tropical marine national monument atolls of the Pacific, remote islands where monster crabs prowl emerald jungles, radiant reefs swarm with sharks, and jewelbox jungles hide secret turquoise lagoons, reclaimed by nature. This timely and inspirational film captures the beauty of the ocean and these protected islets, the conservation efforts to restore their ecosystems, and the diversity of life on both land and reef.
“Our market tests confirm the audience enthusiasm for this topic and the timeliness of the messaging. Among general public audiences, the film scored in the top three out of hundreds of projects our company has surveyed over the years,” said Don Kempf, president of Giant Screen Films. “Hidden Pacific merges nearly every quintessential giant screen ingredient – captivating human, science, and environmental stories, vibrant coral reefs teeming with sharks, military history, sweeping aerials, rare animals, and postcard visuals of a remote tropical paradise.”
Hidden Pacific is produced in association with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and affiliated partners, which provided the filmmakers with unprecedented access to the bio-secure islands and marine national monuments. The result is a breathtaking first look at the natural beauty of these remote locations and a touching profile of the intrepid conservationists whose commitment to protecting these rare ecosystems will leave audiences with a deep-felt, uplifting call to action.
Hidden Pacific will be available in all formats: 2D & 3D, DCI-compliant Digital, Laser CineDome, IMAX Digital, IMAX Laser, IMAX Dome, Dome-customized 15/70, Fulldome Digital.
