“Unfortunately due to the current recommendations around the Covid-19 virus, Elevation Pictures has decided to postpone The Grizzlies from opening in theaters this weekend.   We look forward to bringing the film to theaters and audiences at a later date.”

Who didn’t want to become a teacher when they grow up?

I am a kid and I have been wanting to be a teacher ever since I can remember.

Stories like THE GRIZZLIES remind me of why I want to be a teacher.

The Grizzlies Movie

The Grizzlies Movie


THE GRIZZLIES is an inspiring, true story based on a group of Inuit students in a small Canadian town who are struggling to find their way.

With nothing to do in their extremely tight knit community, many of them turn to alcohol and drug abuse to ignore their problems.

Arriving on a one-year teaching contract, Russ Sheppard unwittingly steps in and the whole town experiences a major shift.

While at first they don’t trust this newcomer, the students and elders of Kugluktuk grow to lean on Sheppard and allow him to change their lives forever.
