April 1, 2014. SK Films, in conjunction with the team from the David Suzuki Foundation will be hosting an IMAX® 3D screening of Flight of the Butterflies on Saturday, April 12, 2014 from 10:30am – 12:00pm at the Scotiabank Theatre in downtown Toronto. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the film’s Executive Producer Jonathan Barker and the Writer Wendy MacKeigan.
All proceeds from this special screening will support the David Suzuki Foundation’s Homegrown National Park Project, which this year aims to crowdsource a butterfly-friendly green corridor throughout the City of Toronto.
In addition to seeing the film, all ticket holders will receive a voucher for a free milkweed plant, which will be available for pick up at the foundation’s plant sale in late May as part of their Got Milkweed campaign.
The Monarch butterfly migration is seriously threatened due to loss of milkweed, which the Monarchs depend on for their survival as it’s the only plant that they lay their eggs on and is their main food source. As part of its extensive educational outreach for Flight of the Butterflies, SK Films has given away over half a million milkweed seeds and donated a portion of the proceeds of the film to conservation projects in the monarch sanctuaries.
