Countdown to Wildscreen Festival
19 - 23 Oct, 2020
Enter the Festival!

Wildscreen Official Selection

Stories about the natural world have 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 believes in the power of visual storytelling to spark positive and restorative action for our natural world, globally. Bold, authentic and varied stories that speak to different audiences with urgency and hope have never been so necessary. The Official Selection call for entries was open to anyone with a story about nature to share - and the submissions did not disappoint!

We received hundreds of submissions and worked with a team of pre-selectors and programmers to curate a screening programme that features original and creative stories about the natural world. The 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 very proud to announce the first ever Wildscreen Official Selection films, they are...
