WILD WOMEN: OCEAN CONSERVATION

The title says it all. These fearless five women are looking to change the way we see our ocean. Through different mediums of science and visual storytelling, each looks to the ocean as a new vector for exploration. Join them as they each tell their stories of what it’s like working and filming under the sea.

In the midst of global social isolation, the catalyzing conversations that the Jackson Wild Summit is known for are more important than ever, making this year’s Virtual Summit one not to miss.

'MY 25: The Ocean Between Us' - Film Screening 

 

The 2020 Official Selection honours 35 productions, including 17 feature length and 18 short films, that are as diverse in style and subject as the natural world. The entries hail from 14 countries across 5 continents, each bringing a new perspective to the natural world and humanity’s relationship with it.

The myriad of complex relationships that exist between humans and nature features heavily amongst the selections which Wildscreen hopes will make a powerful contribution to the discussion on inclusion and diversity within the wildlife and conservation sector globally.

We received hundreds of submissions and worked with a team of pre-selectors and programmers to curate a screening programme that features original and creative stories about the natural world. The natural world is beautifully diverse and this strength will be reflected through the voices heard, tools used and stories shared within the Wildscreen Official Selection.
