October 15-20th, 2006, Bristol, UK
www.wildscreenfestival.org

The Wildscreen Festival is the world's largest, most prestigious and influential event for the wildlife and environmental filmmaking industry.

Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2006 the Festival has grown hugely over this time, and yet still holds true to its founding aim - to celebrate and promote excellence withing the wildlife media industry, thereby increasing the global viewing public’s awareness and understanding of nature and the urgent need to conserve it.

The week-long Festival offers an extensive programme of screenings, debates, training workshops, technical trade show and networking opportunities. Wildscreen is also the key industry market place where many existing films are bought and sold whilst new programmes are commissioned and work given. The week culminates with the Panda Awards Ceremony - the wildlife film industry's equivalent of the Hollywood Oscars. Wildscreen is internationally acknowledged as the most prestigious event of its kind in the world.

Wildscreen attracts the most famous names from wildlife, conservation and environmental backgrounds. At the 12th Wildscreen in 2004 the Festival opened with a landmark debate (broadcast by the BBC) on The Future of Conservation with Sir David Attenborough, Professor Richard Dawkins, Jonathan Dimbleby (Chair), Dr Jane Goodall and Dr Richard Leakey. Previous Wildscreen Speakers have included: Professor EO Wilson, Tom Lovejoy, and Dr Sylvia Earle.

In 2004 Wildscreen received over 400 film entries from 46 countries competing for the Panda Awards - the most prestigious prize a wildlife film can receive. The Festival attracted 650 delegates from 40 countries, giving them the opportunity to keep up-to-date with the media and industry trends, conservation issues, technology, ideas and future direction. In addition Wildscreen ran 250 places on training workshops, so delegates had the opportunity to train with the world's expert film-makers. During the Festival week over 1,500 members of the public attended film screenings of the finalist films.
