WILDERLAND Film Festival will soon be in Bridgwater, sharing important and breathtaking stories from the natural world.

The UK’s first-ever touring wildlife film festival, Wilderland will shine a light on some astonishing and thought-provoking stories - filmed by a host of independent international filmmakers.

Wilderland Film Festival is the brainchild of zoologist filmmakers Dan O’Neill and Isaac Rice, who recruited some of the most acclaimed wildlife filmmakers to whittle down a shortlist of over 50 short films.

There will be nine films that will be seen during the tour.

Judges, including award-winning cameraman Doug Allan, naturalist and author Stephen Moss, and producer/director Louise Heren have chosen films that will take audiences on a journey through the world’s most enigmatic wildlife.

There will be a variety of subjects, from a film exploring how the mercurial snow leopard and Himalayan communities co-exist, to the diminishing orangutan population of orangutans in Borneo, to the impact of noise-pollution in our seas on the majestic humpback whale and many more.

Wilderland Film Festival will be at The McMillan Theatre in Bridgwater on November 7. To book or to find out more visit www.wilderlandfestival.com
