Heliconia, the award-winning production company behind the popular television series Epic Trails, Facing Waves, and Adventure Cities, is excited to launch their first-ever Epic Trails Short Film Giveaway.
Heliconia is looking to tell the story of the world’s most remarkable trails. The adventure travel production company invites Destination Marketing Organizations (DMOS), Tourism Boards, and Agencies, to share what makes the story of their trails, whether they are renown or yet unknown, so special. The winning region will receive the full creation of a short film by Heliconia, including story writing, film production, editing, exposure through film festival entries, and a digital campaign in support of the film’s launch. The contest is open to trail destinations worldwide.
Behind every great trail is a great story. A story about the people who built it, about its inhabitants and its habitat, about the cultures it has shaped and the lives it has changed. “We are storytellers here at Heliconia, and as such we are constantly on the search for tales that encourage people to get outside, enjoy the outdoors, and embrace adventure,” explains Tourism Partnership Manager, Stefanie Manton-Ward. “With COVID-19 and the global restrictions that were placed on travel, our story-telling capabilities were hindered. Now that things are beginning to open up again, we are excited for the opportunity to create a film festival worthy show-piece and support tourism destinations who have been so hard hit by the pandemic.”
Destinations interesting in submitting their trails for consideration to the short film giveaway may enter the contest online here: www.heliconia.ca/epicshortfilm, or by calling 1.613.582.7154 from 9 am to 5 pm EST. Heliconia will be considering locations throughout the next several months, and will work with the winning destination to come up with a filming date that works best for both parties, with the aim to have filming wrapped up by summer 2022.
