A lovely biannual event is the Wildscreen Film Festival held in Bristol which celebrates wildlife and environmental filmmaking. Founded by Sir Peter Scott in 1982 its aim is to celebrate, applaud and encourage excellence, and responsibility - films which increase the global viewing public's understanding of the natural world, and the need to conserve it. This year's festival will run from Sunday 10th - Friday 15th October 2010.

There is a week-long programme of screenings, debates, keynote lectures, workshops, masterclasses and networking events. In addition, the Festival is a crucial marketplace, where films are bought and sold, where new commissions and contracts are awarded and where fresh ideas and skills are traded.

Watershed Centre

Watershed Centre in Bristol

2006 saw Wildscreen return to the newly renovated Watershed Centre in Bristol, where they had exclusive use of all their facilities, including three state-of-the-art cinemas - allowing them to show more films and hosted screenings than ever before.

All core Festival events took place under one roof. The delegate café lounge was at the heart of the Watershed with the cinemas, Festival auditorium and trade show situated at either end of the building and this will be the same in 2010.
