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.

The Real T Rex with Chris Packham + Q&A

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Naturalist and T.rex enthusiast Chris Packham uses ground-breaking studies of dinosaur bones, skin, teeth and musculature, together with reconstructions of T.rex’s incredible brain and the latest CGI technology to redefine our understanding of this iconic dinosaur after years of scientific inaccuracy and Hollywood misrepresentation. Travelling the globe to hear from international experts, the program uncovers ground-breaking insights into not only what T-Rex looked like but also its behaviour – exposing the real beast behind the myth. With both a new understanding of palaeontology and zoology, and trailblazing technology, 'The Real T.rex' creates the most accurate CGI representation of the Tyrannosaurus Rex ever produced.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with producer Ruth Roberts, director Martin Williams and director of production Ulla Streib.
