Here’s what the critics are saying: 

“It’s the sort of majestic educational film that every adult will want
their child to see—and, in all likelihood, will want to see themselves.”

“The film is sure to pique grade-schoolers’ interest and encourage research and experimentation. Its what-if mix of physics, imagination and goodwill is an exhilarating conversation starter.”
—Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter

“[An] inspiring IMAX documentary that could cause a spike in engineering school enrollments…[Dream Big is] an uncomplicated look at a complex subject that gets information across without talking down to its predominantly young audience.”
—Linda Barnard, The Toronto Star

“As with most MacGillivray projects, there’s plenty of razzle-dazzle eye candy on display…The result is fast-paced and attention-getting.”
—John Hartle, Seattle Times

“This IMAX documentary does an epic job of inspiring young viewers to realize the importance of engineering to society. Dream Big packs quite a punch and, particularly for girls, is an inspiring example of why we need to invest in STEM education. A+ for Educational Value.”
—Common Sense Media

“We had no idea how creative and fun being an engineer can be! An entertaining, inspiring, informative and fun film. 5 Stars.”

“A 100% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes!”
