Wildscreen is an internationally acclaimed festival celebrating natural world storytelling in all forms.

With a rich history spanning over 40 years, it unfolds every other autumn in the rebellious, countercultural city of Bristol, in the UK. Through impeccable curation, Wildscreen spotlights bold stories that aim to spark positive and restorative action for our natural world.

It also aims to nurture the next generation of storytellers. Entries, ranging from Romania's biodiversity to giraffe migration in Kenya, hail from both amateur and seasoned filmmakers. Screenings take place across various Bristol venues, which are nearly all fully wheelchair accessible, aside from the Cube Microplex. All tickets incorporate a small fee that goes towards offsetting carbon impact, while bursaries are available to increase inclusivity and support for attendees in need.

Wildscreen Festival is one of the finalists for Trippin 50, a cultural calendar featuring the best events around the world. Check out the Trippin 50 hub here.
