This innovative multi-image propaganda film for Ontario tourism – which was shot on 35mm and printed on 70mm – screened to great acclaim on a 30 X 66 foot screen at Expo ‘67. It cost almost $500,000 and was the origin of the IMAX process.
A Place to Stand won Canadian Film Awards for film of the year and non-feature sound editing and was also nominated for two Academy Awards® – one for best short documentary and the other, which it won, for best live action short film. It was re-released on 16mm in 1969.
