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.

10 years on from the ground-breaking original Planet Earth, Planet Earth II shows us life on our planet in entirely new ways. Captured in stunning Ultra-high definition detail and using a whole range of new camera technology this series brings us closer to animals than ever before and reveals new wildlife dramas for the very first time. Planet Earth II is an immersive exploration of the world’s jungles, mountains, deserts, islands, grasslands and our newest habitat; cities. As our planet continues to change never have these wildernesses been as fragile and as a precious as they are today. The series journeys to the four corners of the globe to explore the greatest treasures of our living planet, and discover the remarkable ways animals overcome the challenges of surviving in the wildest places on Earth.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Mike Gunton.
