National Parks Project

The National Parks Project is a Canadian music and film project.[1] Released in 2011 to mark the 100th anniversary of the creation of the National Parks of Canada system,[2] the project sent three Canadian musicians and a filmmaker to each of 13 Canadian national parks, one in each province and territory, to create and score a short documentary film about the park.[3]

The project was commissioned by Parks Canada and produced by FilmCAN and Primitive Entertainment, in association with Discovery World HD.[4] In addition to airing on Discovery World and on the web, the series was also screened at a number of film festivals, including Toronto's Hot Docs.

Music from the project was released on several EPs, as well as on a compilation album that featured some of the most popular tracks.[4]


Zacharias Kunuk's segment, Sirmilik, won the Genie Award for Best Short Documentary Film at the 32nd Genie Awards.[5]
