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.

Director / Cinematographer
Vancouver, Canada
From the jungles of New Guinea to the ice floes of Canada's Arctic to the thin air of the Argentinean Andes, Ian can be found telling award-winning stories through spectacular images.

A Emmy-award winning cinematographer, Ian works across a diverse range of projects and subjects from Hollywood-produced projects (Bad Times at the El Royale, Riverdale) to sensitive character-driven documentaries (The Suicide Tourist), and expeditions (The Lost Mummies of New Guinea, Polar Safari).

A multiple Emmy nominated and award winning cinematographer, Ian’s work often crosses genres and blends techniques from the narrative, documentary and commercial filmmaking worlds. He's currently obsessed with mounting Cineflex camera systems to as many arctic vehicles as possible.

A former adjunct professor of Advanced Cinematography at UBC and SFU, Ian also contributes to publications including The New York Times and Canadian Cinematographer. This is Ian's first visit to Wildscreen presenting his directorial debut "Churchill".
