The Wildscreen Festival is the world’s leading international festival celebrating and advancing storytelling about the natural world. Held every two years, the Wildscreen Festival brings together the wildlife film, tv and photography community to transform the craft of natural world storytelling across platforms and across audiences.

The Wildscreen Festival 2018 will take place 15-19 October 2018 in Bristol, UK. Further information is available at www.wildscreen.org and delegate tickets are on sale now from Eventbrite.

Delegates holding a day or week pass do not need to register to attend specific events with the exception of the Panda Awards Ceremony (additional purchase required) and film screenings (no additional purchase required). Reservation details can be found in the description of each individual screening.
