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.

Morgan Heim

Wildlife Photojournalist & Filmmaker
Morgan Heim raises a camera for one purpose – to capture moments in an animal’s life that will make us consider what that life means. Inevitably, those stories involve people as much as wildlife – how we treat them, why we need them, what we love, or hate about them.
As a senior fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers, Morgan brings her background in environmental journalism and zoology to conservation storytelling. She used to pursue the stories of wildlife as a research assistant on projects like the bioacoustics of orcas or the life of salmon surrounding the Elwha Dam. She has documented the plight of endangered fishing cats in Thailand, gone deep into California forests in pursuit of trespass marijuana grows, and backpacked over 90-miles and two mountain ranges following the path of a single pregnant mule deer, Deer139.
Morgan was a 2015 recipient of the Fund for Environmental Journalism, 2018 recipient of the Philip Hyde Grant and a two time National Geographic grantee for Deer139 and urban coyotes. Her images have appeared in National Geographic NewsWatch, Smithsonian, World Wildlife, Discover, BBC Wildlife and Newsweek. She is also a cinematographer, with award-winning films in Banff and Telluride Mountain Film Festivals, Adventure Film and COP 22.
When not in the field, you can find Morgan hitting the trail with her dog and husband on the Oregon coast.
