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.

Buffy is the President and Co-Founder of the SunLight Time Foundation and a proud member of the Pleiades Network: a constellation of women working for a sustainable world.
She spent over a decade deeply involved with the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador and still consults for organizations there. Buffy grew up on an estuary off the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland and has spent much of her adult life diving and snorkeling the waters off the lower Florida Keys.
She was a field producer and natural history guide for a story in the National Geographic Magazine on the Goliath Grouper. Buffy collaborated on the harp seal segment, of a National Geographic story on the Gulf of St. Lawrence and used her field experience, and local knowledge to scout a story for the magazine on Sargassum. She is actively involved with the Environmental Voter's Project to motivate those who care about the planet to vote in the USA.
Buffy holds an M.F.A. in Dramatic Writing from Humboldt State University and a B.A. in Ancient Military History from the University of Maryland, College Park. After many years volunteering in cat behavior at the SFSPCA she put her unusual skills to work after Hurricane Katrina and continues to help solve human/cat communication issues.
Buffy is grateful she studied photography with Galen Rowell and his wife Barbara. She is an avid SCUBA diver, explorer and traveler. She, her husband and their two (indoor only) cats divide their time between New York City and the Lower Florida Keys.
