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.

Matthew has been working in television production for over 20 years, starting out in the fast-paced world of live TV in London before moving to Bristol to take up a role as a researcher on wildlife series for Discovery Channel, National Geographic, Animal Planet, ITV and Channel Five.
After working his way up the ladder, he moved across to the BBC Natural History Unit in 2010 to produce the Sahara Desert episode of Sir David Attenborough's acclaimed landmark series "Africa". He stayed at the BBC to oversee "Supergiant Animals" with presenter Steve Backshall, and then the Andes episode of "Mountain: Life at the Extreme" which took him across South America, working in extreme conditions, sometimes at altitudes over 5,000 metres.
