Meet. Create. Innovate.
Wildscreen Festival, the biggest global gathering of natural world storytellers, is back. We’re excited to return to the heart of Bristol for a unique hybrid event. We expect to be welcoming more delegates in 2024 than ever before, so join our community for a jam-packed programme of headliners, panels, exclusive film screenings and face-to-face networking between 14-18 October.

Established in 1982 to celebrate the best in the craft of natural world storytelling, Wildscreen Festival continues to bring together our community of filmmakers, photographers, scientists and broadcasters. In our 42-year history, the festival has served as a global marketplace for ideas and innovation, a launchpad for award-winning talent and a foundation for new partnerships and collaboration for thousands.

Everyone is welcome as we aim to welcome as many people as possible to experience the natural world, feel part of it and be inspired to protect it. Join us for an unmissable series of live events in venues across our home city of Bristol, or tailor your experience with hybrid or fully virtual ticket options that are open to all. Your Wildscreen adventure starts here.


Book your place
This year, we’ve frozen our ticket prices. That means you’ll have access to all our amazing headliners, panels, screenings, masterclasses and networking events for the same price you paid in 2022. We’re keen to show support for the freelance community in particular, who are facing challenges, giving as many of you the chance to be part of the Wildscreen Festival as possible.


Please note, you are able to register for another attendee once you have registered yourself. This option is available on the check out page.


Start: 14 October 2024
End: 18 October 2024
