"Return To Nature" documents the conservation, breeding and rehabilitation of giant pandas in a breeding base in Chengdu, capital of Sichuan, and a research center in Dujiangyan City.
Drew Fellman is director of the film. Filming is expected to take nine months.
Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding and Canadian-based IMAX Corporation are cooperating on the film, which is funded by Global Cause Foundation, a U.S. non-profit.
Officials from the Chengdu research base said they hope the documentary can help promote protection of giant pandas as well as Chengdu's image as an international tourist destination featuring pandas.
The Global Cause Foundation has been working with the Chengdu base for years and has set up research projects to release pandas to the wild.
IMAX Corporation signed a deal with the Chengdu research base to shoot the panda documentary in October 2015.
