Roles: Director

Greg MacGillivray is a giant-screen documentary filmmaker who has produced and directed many of the most successful films shown in IMAX® theatres, including the box-office hit Everest and the Academy Award®-nominated films The Living Sea and Dolphins. His 2012 film, To The Arctic, received the Best Film of the Year award from the Giant Screen Cinema Association, and he most recently directed Humpback Whales 3D, which won the GSCA Achievement Award for Best Film of the Year.
