Antarctica Day Book Movie Recommendation Poster

This Antarctica Day, we focused on the portrayal of Antarctica in different kinds of media. There have been countless movies and books either featuring or inspired by the white continent, and we hope to share the best of those with all of you.

Books may cover an array of genres, ranging from biographies of explorers and accounts of expeditions to travel guides and historical publications. Films can range from epic documentaries and investigative reporting to apocalyptic narratives and bizarre science fiction. The only requirement was that the book should feature Antarctica in some way or form.

The best submission will be shared on APECS social media. A booklet and web resource will be created with all the recommendations received and prospectively released after the events of Antarctica Day. It will serve as a literary directory for everyone to view at leisure.
