Wildscreen, Bristol’s bi-annual natural history film festival, has issued a call for entries for their tenth annual Panda Awards competition. The competition is open to both new and established producers of film, television and interactive media, although entries must have a wildlife, conservational or environmental theme. Submissions for the U.K. event must be received before April 30. Panda finalists will be confirmed by mid-summer, with winners announced during the festival, which runs October 7-13.
Besides boasting a renovated venue for the event, Wildscreen 2000 will also reflect the growing popularity of large-format film. The event now offers an Imax theater, and organizers have added a Panda Award for best large format (70mm/15 perf) production.
For an entry form, or for more festival information, interested producers can contact the festival office at info@wild screen.org.uk, or visit the Wildscreen website at www.wildscreen.org.uk.
