An exclusive, invite-only preview to launch the upcoming New York City Wild Film Festival will take place at the Tribeca Cinema on April 7.

The special media preview will precede the April 2012 debut of the festival, dubbed as the first annual wildlife-specific doc fest to be held in the Big Apple and the brainchild of former National Geographic Television documentary filmmaker Nancy Rosenthal.

“More than ever people are fascinated with all things connected to our planet and are increasingly aware of the urgency to save it, and documentary film has become an enormously powerful and popular medium for that kind of outreach,” said Rosenthal in a statement.
