The Minds Behind Movies For Families
Have you ever had the opportunity to visit a museum and watch an amazing documentary or educational movie on the big screen? Isn’t it amazing? I am such a visual learner, so for me, these types of movies bring learning to life. I was beyond thrilled when MacGillivray Freeman reached out to see if I would be interested in collaborating with them to share their new streaming service with you! So, before we chat all about Movies for Families, I wanted to give you a little bit of background information on MacGillivray Freeman! Huge thank you to them for providing my family with a membership to Movies for Families so that we could check it out!
MacGillivray Freeman is the World’s leading giant-screen producer and distributor. In fact, you have probably even seen one of their films on the big screen!! They have produced over 45 films and have been nominated for 2 Academy Awards. They began in the 60’s with the creation of surfing documentaries. But it was in 1976 when they created their first IMAX film that they fell in love with giant-screen film making. To Fly! was created for the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum and can still be seen there today! They are storytellers who are dedicated to inspiring the world with their films. They have now made it possible for families and educators around the world to have access to their award-winning films and educational content at home!
