TORONTO, Dec. 6, 2012 /CNW/ - Canada Goose, one of the world's leading
manufacturers of extreme weather outerwear, celebrates its authentic
connection with the film industry as the Official Outerwear Sponsor of
the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, Jan. 17-27 in Park City, Salt Lake
City, Sundance and Ogden, Utah. As part of the sponsorship, Canada
Goose will provide more than 300 filmmakers and jury members with
signature Burnett Jackets, from its Fall/Winter 2012 collection, to
keep them warm throughout the Festival.
Known in the entertainment industry as the "unofficial" jacket of film
crews, Canada Goose parkas have been the must-have gear on film sets
anywhere it's cold for more than 20 years. Canada Goose down-filled
jackets are 100% manufactured in Canada with the highest quality
craftsmanship and materials, offering crew members the warmth and
functionality they need to survive long shoots in the most demanding
environments. In recent years, the iconic jackets have also made their
way on-camera in films such as Captain America, National Treasure, The Grey, Mr. Popper's Penguins, Whiteout, Eight Below and Battleship, as a way to help authenticate movies set in cold weather environments.
"From major feature films to independent documentaries, our jackets have
played a role in the film community for more than 20 years. As a
sponsor of the iconic Sundance Film Festival we're thrilled to offer
filmmakers from around the world a piece of Canada and an exclusive
token of their 2013 Festival experience," said Kevin Spreekmeester, VP
Global Marketing, Canada Goose.
Introduced in Canada Goose's Fall/Winter 2012 Outdoor Performance
collection, the Burnett Jacket is a military-inspired coat insulated
with white duck down for the ultimate in warmth and protection. The
official Sundance Film Festival customized jackets feature the Sundance
logo on one arm, fleece-lined hand warmer pockets, shoulder epaulettes
with snap attachments to secure gloves or the removable hoods, and
heavy-duty, rib-knit cuffs to keep out the cold.
