Lifetime Achievement

“My filmmaking for the giant-screen IMAX Theatre format is different from conventional filmmaking,” said Greg MacGillivray. “We put audience members in the film. They are immersed in the scene on the giant IMAX Theatre screen. From the time I worked with Stanley Kubrick on The Shining through the time spent making 40 films for IMAX theatres, my creative team in Laguna Beach and I keep trying to push the film experience to new and unexpected levels.”
