The Wildscreen Festival is internationally acknowledged as the most influential and prestigious event of its kind in the world. Its aim is to celebrate, applaud and encourage excellence, and responsibility, in wildlife and environmental filmmaking - films which increase the global viewing public's understanding of the natural world, and the need to conserve it.
The Wildscreen Festival was founded by Sir Peter Scott in 1982 and has been organized every other year since then. Held in Bristol, the world’s center for wildlife filmmaking, the Wildscreen Festival attracts hundreds of delegates from around the globe who work in film, television and the press, as well as those actively involved in working to conserve the environment.
Wildscreen is heavily supported by the largest names in wildlife filmmaking such as the BBC, Five and Animal Planet, camera manufacturers such as Panasonic, scientific institutions such as the Natural History Museum, as well as organisations that are becoming more aware of their own environmental responsibility. It is also supported by organizations such as Conservation International.
Wildscreen is organised by a UK-based charity that believes in the power of film and photography to inspire conservation. The Festival programs Environmental, Wilderness and issue-based political films. Awards include: Best Film, Cinematography, Editing, Conservation, Campaigning, Earth Sciences, News and Popular Broadcast amongst many others. This festival is biennial.
