Wildscreen is a not-for-profit conservation organisation that empowers a global community of storytellers on behalf of the natural world.
The Wildscreen Festival is the world’s most prestigious event in the natural world storytelling industry. Since 1982, we have honoured the most remarkable achievement in the craft of natural world filmmaking through the Wildscreen Panda Awards.
In 2020, we are at a time in our history when stories about the natural world been never been more important - we are the first generation to understand humanity’s impact on nature and the last to be able to protect and restore it. Wildscreen firmly believe in the power of visual storytelling to spark positive and restorative action for our natural world, globally. We need bold, authentic and varied stories that speak to different audiences. Nature depends on it.
The inaugural Wildscreen Official Selection will cement the Wildscreen Festival as a true film festival, a global launch pad where creative innovation is recognised, new voices are discovered, where there is equality in opportunity from which a truly inclusive natural world storytelling genre evolves.
What are we looking for?
Our natural world is beautifully diverse and this strength will be reflected through the voices heard, tools used and stories shared within the Wildscreen Official Selection.
We are looking for original, creative stories that reflect one or more of the following:
- Authentic voices
- Optimism and solutions
- Interrelationships between humans and nature
- Next generation of stewards and storytellers
- Innovation in audience or platform
Please note that in light of the current COVID-19 situation, we have removed the additional fee for late submission. The Extended Regular Deadline is Friday 1 May 23:59 PT.
