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.

Zoological Society of London
Research Fellow
Convinced early on in my budding career that I would only ever work on mammals and primarily be doing fieldwork, I completed my PhD on badger ecology and movement in 2007. I have been a post-doc at the Zoological Society of London's Institute of Zoology since 2009. I am mainly focusing my now very desk-based research on how we can best monitor the status of global biodiversity - especially the little, often overlooked species such as molluscs, beetles, spiders, etc. I work closely with the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, and am currently heavily involved in the IUCN Butterfly Specialist Group. As IUCN Red List trainer, I get to travel to amazing places and talk to amazing, inspirational people about how to we can use the IUCN Red List as a tool for driving species assessments and conservation decisions. Since 2016, I have also been involved in ZSL's WildScience podcast, our new platform to bring conservation topics to a wider audience. We have now recorded more than 14 episodes (and counting).
