For the second year, a piece by GLP Films takes home first place in Adventure Travel Trade Association’s “Adventure in Motion” film contest. This time around The Man at the End of the World won.

The film takes place in Tierra del Fuego, Chile through the eyes of Don Germán. He and his wife live on the scenic shores of Lago Fagnano, a location ripe for tourism and on the brink of major government-sponsored development. The short film explores how tourism can save the area. It was created in partnership with Turismo Chile to help support Tierra del Fuego as a travel destination.

The vote was determined by 850 travel trade professionals at the Adventure Travel World Summit in Salta, Argentina.

Rob Holmes, founder and chief strategist of GLP films, says while he always want to create high-quality storytelling for partners, he also strives for collaborative success within the travel trade industry. “We also want our content and storytelling to engage the entire travel industry, along with drive long-term sustainable tourism development and conservation for emerging and established destinations and travel brands.”
