Did you know a Canadian was one of the co-inventors of IMAX?

Ivan Graeme Ferguson CM (born 7 October 1929 in Toronto, Ontario) is a Canadian filmmaker and inventor who co-invented IMAX. Ferguson was appointed a Member of the Order of Canada in 1993. He graduated from the University of Toronto with a bachelor's degree.

Ferguson was one of four co-founders of IMAX Corporation and thereby one of the creators of the IMAX. A film-maker from his childhood in the 1930s, he was still making films in 2010, with an executive producer credit on Hubble 3D. In 1971, Ferguson produced, directed and shot North of Superior, one of the first official IMAX films, which is still shown on IMAX screens.
