National Parks Project (NPP)

National Parks Project (NPP)

The National Parks Project (NPP) combines film, music, television and new media and features contributions by more than 50 of Canada’s most acclaimed filmmakers and musicians. From May to October, 2010, the project sent groups comprised of one filmmaker and three musicians to a park in each province and territory to collaborate on a short film and soundtrack that reflects their experience of the landscape. The result is a collection of 13 films that showcase both the country’s natural diversity and the breadth of its artistic talent, and celebrates the spirit of creative collaboration.

NPP films and music are available on multiple platforms:

  • Stream films and music and explore extra parks content at www.nationalparksproject.ca, the online home of the NPP.
  • NPP on iTunes: download the NPP films in HD, and buy the NPP soundtrack album and Digital EPs (proceeds from music sales will benefit the Nature Conservancy of Canada).
