Explore the case for a wilder Scotland and Europe through a stunning backdrop of beautiful wildlife film and photography. Award-winning photographers, filmmakers and conservationists who are telling the rewilding story, will share their work and hopes for thriving wildlife and wild places. From reintroduced species such as lynx and beavers to revitalised landscapes, discover their vision for an ecologically rich and sustainable wild Europe that benefits all life, including humans.

Speakers include:
- Peter Cairns, award-winning wildlife and conservation photographer. Peter is the Project Director of SCOTLAND: The Big Picture, which is creating compelling visual media that promotes the benefits of a wilder Scotland for people and wildlife.
- Laurent Geslin, a environmental photographer who has been documenting the elusive European lynx for the past decade, following the story of its translocation and reintroduction across Europe and integration into the modern cultural landscape.

This event is open to members of the public with tickets available from the St George's website or box office. Festival delegates are welcome to attend free of charge - no booking required.
