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.

Naomi Wilkinson

TV Presenter
In January Naomi will have been presenting children’s television non-stop for 20 years. She has been a nominee twice in the Best Presenter category for her own show ‘Naomi’s Nightmares of Nature’ at the Children’s BAFTA Awards (2014 & 2016). Across 4 series, Naomi travelled the globe coming face to face with the nasty nightmares of the natural world, conquering her fears in numerous, extreme challenges along the way, like: skydiving in South Africa, sleeping up a tree in the jungles of Costa Rica, coming nose to nose underwater with a 4.8m crocodile in Australia and swimming with sharks, without a cage… 7 times! The series was nominated for Best Children’s Programme at the 2015 Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival and won the Best Children's category at the West of England RTS Awards.
Naomi has presented many items for BBC One's ‘Countryfile’ and in 2016 judged their Wildlife photographic competition alongside John Craven and Bill Bailey.
Since 2010 she has been consistently presenting for CBBC where she hosts a wide variety of programmes covering nature, adventure, factual entertainment, arts, music and live entertainment. Naomi presents ‘Marrying Mum & Dad’, ‘Wild & Weird’, ‘All Over The Place’ & regularly appears as a guest across the channel on other popular shows like ‘Blue Peter’, ‘Sam & Mark’s Big Friday Wind Up’ and ‘The Dog Ate My Homework’.
For 10 years before moving to CBBC, Naomi was both the presenter and producer of Channel 5’s ‘Milkshake!'.
