The panel guests will be discussing key topics relating to the future of wildlife filmmaking. This will include discussing how we as wildlife filmmakers can play our part in accelerating the transition to environmentally friendly production methods.
They will also be discussing how we can increase support for local filmmakers to tell their own stories, to their own audiences.
Lastly, the discussion will focus on the power of storytelling and how we can use it to help tackle the climate and ecological crisis. What are we currently excluding from the stories we chose to tell that our audiences need to know?
