May 29, 2019—Giant Screen Films (GSF) is pleased to announce Dinosaurs of Antarctica, a
large-format film launching globally into museum and IMAX® cinemas in February
2020. The first original large-format dinosaur film in over a decade, Dinosaurs of Antarctica will

major support provided by the National Science Foundation, the film follows a
team of paleoecologists on a quest to understand the southern continent’s
profound transformation, from a warm and bio-diverse Mesozoic to the frozen
desert we know today.
