The Wildscreen Festival is the largest, most significant wildlife and environmental filmmaking festival in the world. It is held every two years in Bristol, United Kingdom.
The details: For the first time this year, the festival is expanding internationally, with one of its hub events taking place in Bengaluru. Wildscreen is branching out to more parts of the world to give everyone a chance to experience the culture it inculcates, and a platform for more voices and stories to be heard.
- Not just an experience, but also a chance for the public to meet and watch the top wildlife filmmakers and photographers, Shekar Dattatri and Sandesh Kadur, as well as experience UK-based writer-director Harry Marshall’s masterclasses.
- As part of the festival’s 40th-anniversary celebrations, additional centres are being established in Kenya, South Africa, and India, according to Lucie Muir, CEO of Wildscreen.
Importance of Natural World: With the festival being celebrated in India for the first time, it acts as “a hope to take the conversation about the country’s natural world centre-stage”. Make sure to contribute to the awareness of this issue by attending the festival on October 21 and 22.
