Ateles Films as Pre-selectors at Wildscreen Festival 2022

We proudly share that Ana Luísa Santos and Michael Sanderson from Ateles Films are part of the pre-selection panel for the second edition of the Official Selection competition for the Wildscreen 2022!

It is a great honour for us to be part of such a rich and diverse panel.

Wildscreen Festival is a world-leading international festival, celebrating and advancing natural world storytelling which takes place biennially and is supported by year-round outreach events, partnerships and activities.

The 40th birthday edition of the Wildscreen Festival will take place between the 10-14 October 2022 in Bristol and will mark a new hybrid format for the world’s leading natural world storytelling event.

Wildscreen, the not-for-profit conservation organisation and creator of the Wildscreen Festival, commits to building on the accessibility, inclusivity and sustainability gains made during the pandemic.

The hybrid format will boost the reach and impact of the 2022 event even further, enabling face to face events and networking from Wildscreen’s home city of Bristol, UK, bolstered by a new offering of in-person hubs located in key natural history production bases around the globe, all weaved seamlessly together with a powerful virtual platform.

The reimagined 2020 virtual edition of the Festival, saw delegate numbers soar by 100 percent to 1,900, with 42 countries represented, the largest number ever in the event’s history. The 2020 Festival saw 121 speakers deliver 248 hours of content, spanning 43 events covering everything from keynotes, masterclasses, commissioner briefings and film screenings. Over 3,000 new connections were made with 10,000 messages being exchanged using the events networking tool. Headliners included Wildscreen’s Patron, Sir David Attenborough in conversation with Greta Thunberg, Jane Goodall, Jeremy Darroch and James Cameron.
