Don't miss FF:W's official session at COP26

We are pleased to announce the Filmmakers for Future: Wildlife session ‘The Future of Wildlife Filmmaking: Beyond the Frame’ at the UN Climate Change Conference UK 2021 in The Green Zone.

During this event we will be presenting five short films produced exclusively for this occasion. These will be followed by a panel discussion, hosted by Steve Backshall, where wildlife filmmakers discuss with the broadcast channels the enormous issues involved in producing wildlife films in a climate emergency..

The session will take place on Saturday 6th November at 11:30am, and will end at 1pm.

Please note, the in-person event is currently fully booked.

Wildscreen 2020

Wildscreen 2020

Wildscreen, the worlds biggest wildlife filmmaking festival, is just one week away, but this year it’s going to be a little different.

Unlike the normal week long hive of activity filling the watershed and various other Bristol venues, this year due to Covid19, Wildscreen Festival will be held online.

This year the festival will be hosted at a new website, https://wildscreenfest.uscreen.io/

Whilst many will be missing the opportunity to catch up with friends and colleagues, others will be embracing the new and significantly cheaper ticket price to reflect the lower overheads. This year Full Industry Passes and Concession passes are £125 and £50 respectively.

A pass will give you full access to the week of content including online masterclasses, sessions, headliners, screenings, award ceremonies, Q&A sessions and more!

What’s more, the content will be available for pass holders to access on-demand until mid-December!

The panda award nominees have been announced and there’s a lot to get stuck into this year! From the refreshingly beautiful and personal underwater insight of, ‘My Octopus Teacher‘, to the environmental bombshell that is, ‘David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet‘.

The last year has brought some of the most stunning and also hard hitting wildlife films to date, and the discussions that come out of Wildscreen will be a valuable resource for FFW both in content creation and industry improvement.


With over 57 speakers giving seminars, Q&A sessions and master classes this year, there’s a lot to keep busy with, most notably Sir David Attenborough, Greta Thunberg, and Dr. Jane Goodall. In addition to these environmental and wildlife rockstars there’s also Johan Rockström, a Swedish professor and leading climate scientist. 

Whether you attend Wildscreen 2020 or not, make sure you come back here afterwards as we’ll be holding discussions and talks reflecting on the keynotes, films and more.
