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.

Please note that the programme is being updated frequently as guest availability changes. Wildscreen reserves the right to make such updates to the programme and timings, and will endeavour to make those changes as quickly as possible.

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.

To help you manage your time at the Wildscreen Festival, you can sign up for a Sched account and login to save events to your personal calendar. Note that doing so does not guarantee entry to events as seating is on a first-come-first-served basis at the venue door. We advise that you arrive in plenty of time before a session starts.

The programme includes both industry events, which are included in the price of a delegate day or week pass, and public events that anyone is welcome to attend, subject to booking procedures.

The holy grail for storytellers is to have the time and resources to undertake long-term, in-depth storytelling. Sticking with a story is the best way to unearth the truth and to get a deeper insight into the lives of species we think we know.

Award-winning conservation photographers, Jasper Doest and Amy Shutt share their journeys of how a passion and curiosity for a particular species has come to define their work and how they manage to commit for the long-term.
