DINOSAURS OF ANTARCTICA Outreach and Engagement
As the pandemic begins to lift, institutional cinemas around the world are gearing up to launch Dinosaurs of Antarctica over the coming year and, thanks to support from the National Science Foundation, the film’s robust outreach and engagement rollout is taking shape. With over 100 markets launching by spring 2022, GSF is busy lining up virtual and in-person appearances with the star scientists and the author of the companion comic book. Contact GSF to plan film-related programs and learn more about grant funding to offset costs.

ABOUT THE FILM
From the Permian through the Jurassic, journey to the south polar landscapes of Antarctica hundreds of millions of years ago. Roam the primitive forest and thick swamps with bizarre dinosaurs and colossal amphibians. Enter a surreal world of bug-eyed giants and egg-laying mammals – where survival means enduring the sunless, six-month polar winter surrounded by meat-eaters with night vision. Join intrepid Antarctic scientists on a quest to understand the ice continent’s profound transformation over deep time — investigating the parallels and differences between prehistoric climate events and human-triggered warming today.
Welcome to the lost prehistoric world of Gondwana…
