National Geographic's giant-screen film Mysteries of the Unseen World was named a finalist in the 3-D and Science categories for this year's Wildscreen Panda Awards. The 40-minute film, narrated by actor Forest Whitaker, is an original production by National Geographic and Day's End Pictures that was created especially for giant-screen viewing and is available in 3-D and 2-D, 15/70 and digital formats.
