Arctic Blast is a 2010 Australian-Canadian disaster film. Its world premiere took place at the 2010 Canadian Film Festival in Sydney, at the Dendy Opera Quays cinema, on 4 August.


The plot is centered on a colossal blast of heavily chilled mesosphere air, spreading over the Earth after a solar eclipse combined with the effects of environmental pollution that caused a hole in the ozone layer. The catastrophic event threatens to engulf the entire world in ice. As Hobart, Tasmania, is hit by the cold front with temperatures of below -70 degrees Celsius, causing people to die almost instantaneously, physicist Jack Tait (Michael Shanks) tries to find a solution while protecting his family.



The film was shot in Tasmania. The executive producer is Antony I. Ginnane, whose venture IFM/Filmways was responsible for the film release in Australia and New Zealand.[1] The other executive producers are Tom Berry and Pierre David.
