Environmentally-focused charity Wildscreen’s goal is to convene the best photographers, filmmakers and creative professionals with the most committed conservationists to create compelling stories about the natural world; that inspire the wider public to experience it, feel part of it and protect it.
Wildscreen Network Webinar
Last week, Wildscreen Network sat down with director/ producer Rosie Thomas to explore her career and experiences as a DP. Our next webinar will focus on the ‘Power of Film for Conservation Storytelling’ with filmmakers and conservationists Kalyanee Mam & Dr. Rebecca Kormos.
Rebecca and Kalyanee co-directed the Programmer Prize winner, Cries Of Our Ancestors, and will be discussing the impact of film on conservation efforts on 11 March. This event is free for Network members and £5 for non-members.
