Pictures on the road
Through Wildscreen Outreach, we aim to connect communities to the nature that’s local to them, wherever they are in the world. This is done through working in partnership with conservation groups on the ground, and by directly inspiring local audiences to become actively involved in conservation.
Wildscreen Film Festival on tour
Since 2007, we have established an international touring programme of film screenings and masterclasses, taking award-winning filmmakers and their films to countries where pressure on the environment is most critical, reaching and inspiring new audiences across China, India, Sri Lanka, and Taiwan.
WE SEE FILMS
Working in partnership with the West End Cinema Education Initiative (WECEI), through its WE SEE FILMS program, we share award-winning Wildscreen Festival films and deliver supporting, standards-aligned lessons from Arkive Education to students within the Washington D.C. area.
WECEI’s mission is to enhance the education experience of Washington DC’s public and charter schools through the provision of free screenings of educational films to students at the West End Cinema.
Wildscreen Arkive - Bringing Nature into Focus
In the UK over 30% of priority species and 40% of priority habitats are declining. To halt this trend we need to change the way that people value nature - and the UK Government estimates that we have just 7 years to make a difference.
Building upon our digital experience and working in collaboration with the UK's leading conservation organisations, Arkive - Bringing Nature into Focus will:
- Increase the number of people engaged in UK nature, targeting millions of people
- Be a community hub, reconnecting people to the UK’s wildlife and the work of the country’s leading conservation organisations
- Make UK species, habitats and places recognisable and accessible
- Enable people to learn, encourage them to explore and empower them to teach others to value nature
Over the last year, The Heritage Lottery Fund has generously funded the development phase of the project. To gain further investment from the Heritage Lottery Fund and deliver the project we need to secure pledges of matched funding.
