Community leader Mark Terry accepts a Gemini Humanitarian Award for writing, producing and directing the film The Polar Explorer.


You might remember Mark Terry from an earlier post describing his work as a filmmaker. We're now excited to announce that the David Suzuki Foundation community leader recently won a Gemini Humanitarian Award for writing, producing, and directing the film The Polar Explorer.

The Polar Explorer looks at the latest research about climate change in the Arctic and Antarctica. The Gemini Humanitarian Award is given to people in the TV industry who have shown an admirable commitment to community and public service.

A dedicated environmentalist, Terry thanked the David Suzuki Foundation in his acceptance speech.

If you're in Toronto and interested in viewing the film, it will be screened at the upcoming Planet in Focus film festival. For a full viewing schedule, see the Polar Explorer website.
