If you consider yourself a "traveller", the call to explore the world is one you hear every...single...day. But between careers, kids and other responsibilities (ie. adulting), your sense of wanderlust might be bigger than your bank account and vacation time allows for. 

So, although we can’t travel to a new corner of the globe every day, we can make a trip to the movie theatre. And with “Passport to the World,” that’s almost the same thing.


What is Passport to the World?

From South America to the USA to the Loire castles in France, “Passport to the World” is a visually stunning travel film series that showcases both famous and off-the-beaten-path destinations. The films play out on cinema screens across Canada and run 75-90 minutes in duration.

Movie-lovers and Canadian travellers will be treated to spectacular global destinations. This unique series allows you to see the world for the price of a movie ticket. 

Presented in both English and French, “Passport to the World” acts as a sort of visual travel book. Each film profiles iconic sites that might be familiar to the viewer while taking a deep dive into the destination's rich traditions, nuanced histories, natural splendor, and vibrant local culture. Professionally-shot high-quality images and sound bring the world a little closer to home. 

With roots that date back to 2012, “Passport to the World” was officially incorporated in 2016. Its first series launched in 2017. Now, 2018 is gearing up to feature incredible destinations you won’t want to miss.
