REEL Earth Day Challenge

Reel Green industry partners and stakeholders collaborated to support Metro Vancouver Regional Parks with the inaugural launch of an industry-wide challenge to raise funds for restoration and rehabilitation projects through the Pacific Parklands Foundation.

Metro Vancouver Regional Parks have been generous locations to many of film productions over the years, hosting 49 productions with a total of 360 days of filming in 2019 alone.

Modelled after the REEL Thanksgiving Challenge, the REEL Earth Day Challenge encourages crews, productions, suppliers and vendors, and other industry stakeholders to raise funds during the 10 business days leading up to Earth Day. The production that raises the most funds overall is recognized as the winner!
 

The first annual REEL Earth Day Challenge raised $164,286 to support conservation work in Metro Vancouver Regional Parks.
