Cineplex hosts Sharkwater screenings in tribute to late filmmaker Rob Stewart

Feb. 25 screening is free in exchange for donation to WWF Canada to continue his conservation work

Cineplex will honour the late Canadian filmmaker Rob Stewart by hosting screenings of his documentary Sharkwater in support of charity at select theatres across Canada next week.

Stewart’s body was recovered on Feb. 3 days after he went missing off the coast of Florida where he had been scuba diving with friends. He had been in Florida filming a Sharkwater followup entitled Sharkwater Extinction.

He was also known for his documentary Revolution, and his memoir Save the Humans.

Free tickets for the Feb. 25 screening will be available at the box office of participating theatres in exchange for a donation to WWF-Canada, with all funds to be directed toward continuing the work of the late Toronto conservationist.
