Welcome to the 1st Annual REEL Earth Day Challenge! The challenge is presented by Creative BC’s Reel Green™ program and industry partners, Pacific Parklands Foundation and Earth Day Canada.
The challenge raises funds to donate to Pacific Parklands Foundations, a registered charity supporting Metro Vancouver Regional Parks that protects and preserves regional parks, where many of B.C. productions are filmed.
Inspired by the REEL Thanksgiving Challenge that raised over $1M, the REEL Earth Day Challenge encourages crews, productions, sponsors, and other industry stakeholders to raise funds in the days leading up to Earth Day, April 22nd. Industry sponsors contribute to the top teams’ daily challenge totals, and the production that raises the most funds overall is declared the winner.
In 2021 Team The Scriptures was declared first ever challenge champion!
Thank you to all participants, donors, and industry supporters who took part in the challenge. Together we raised over $164,000 to restore and protect Metro Vancouver Regional Parks.
We acknowledge that our work takes place on the traditional, ancestral and unceded traditional homelands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
We respect the land and honour this tradition of land acknowledgment that dates back centuries for Indigenous people. With this acknowledgment, we thank those Indigenous people who still live on and care for these lands as we learn how to be respectful guests.
