Founded by Sir Peter Scott in 1982, and held biennially in Bristol ever since, the festival attracts many hundreds of international delegates from the worldwide film and television industry, academic institutions, conservation campaigns and statutory and voluntary environmental organisations.
The delegates are drawn to Bristol by a week-long programme of screenings, debates, keynote lectures, workshops, masterclasses and networking events, culminating in the Panda Awards Ceremony - wildlife film's equivalent of Hollywood's 'Oscars'.
In addition, the festival is a crucial market-place, where completed films are bought and sold, where new commissions and contracts are awarded and where fresh ideas and skills are traded.
Wildscreen takes place in association with WWF-UK. As befits its international standing, the festival is backed by many world-famous corporations - among them are broadcasters and film-makers, such as the BBC, Discovery and Granada.
