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.

Ammonite Ltd
Director of the award-winning production company Ammonite Films, Martin Dohrn took up photography seriously at the age of 14 to record butterflies rather than collect them. After studying photography at art college, he worked as a photographer in London for six years before joining the BBC Natural History Unit. In 1994 Martin set up Ammonite, and he has been producing landmark programmes ever since. His awards include two BAFTA nominations and an Emmy for cinematography, and awards for Ammonite's innovative children’s series Smalltalk Diaries. Martin has devised game-changing techniques to gain insight into the natural world, including the colour Starlight Camera and Frankencam (micro-motion control for filming small things in the wild). His ground-breaking films include Mara Nights and Killer Ants for BBC, Night of the Lion for National Geographic and, most recently, David Attenborough's Light on Earth for Terra Mater Factual Studios.
