The Arctics film was created to mark the 50th anniversary of the Arctic Winter Games this year.
It was supposed to premiere at the games back in March, but that changed when they were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We didn’t get to recognize all these athletes and organizers at the games that we got to work with,” said Marty O’Brien, one of the filmmakers with Midnight Light Media.
The games happen every two years, bringing together competitors from the across circumpolar North. Around 2,000 athletes representing seven different countries compete.
The filmmakers followed athletes and organizers from all of the contingents of the games, preparing to compete in what would have been the 2022 games.
