Ateles Films attended Jackson Wild Summit 2022

During the last week of September 2022, Ateles Films attended Jackson Wild Summit in the region of Burgenland in Austria.

Jackson Wild Summit is undoubtedly a huge catalyst for so many in this industry that supports a kind of cross pollination  hard to find elsewhere.

We are very grateful to be part of this incredible community of filmmakers, storytellers, scientists and decision makers that do so much for the wildlife filmmaking industry.

We are very proud to meet our mentees and mentors and see them growing as we do. Beautiful stories come out of hard work and dedication through the years.

We were very happy to see old friends and colleagues and to meet new ones. Every soul has an incredible background and life experience which matches with their drive to make a difference through wildlife filmmaking.

A huge thanks to the team behind the scenes. You are incredible and made an amazing in-person event after a long virtual life.
