The second annual REEL Earth Day Challenge brought together B.C. film industry stakeholders in the spirit of giving and environmental sustainability.  The fundraising competition, jointly developed by Creative BC’s Reel Green™ initiative and the Pacific Parklands Foundation, encouraged crews, productions, suppliers, vendors and other motion picture industry stakeholders to raise funds in the days leading up to Earth Day on April 22.

Building off the success of the inaugural REEL Earth Day Challenge in 2021, multiple teams participated in the challenge this year, raising a total of $108,785 that will go towards seven projects. The top team, The Night Agent, raised over $63,000.

The Pacific Parklands Foundation, a registered charity established to support Metro Vancouver’s Regional Parks system, will put the money raised toward the following projects:
