We are launching an incredibly exciting new initiative at the Wildscreen Festival this year. 2014 will be the inaugural year for the Wildscreen ROAR Talent Programme and Bursary!
ROAR Talent Programme
The ROAR Talent programme is a strand of sessions, workshops and events tailored to the knowledge level and requirements of industry newcomers, or beginners in specific areas. The aim of the strand is to teach vital foundation skills and provide valuable trade know-how, with each session acting as a thorough introduction to a specific topic.
The workshops are open to everyone, with the tickets being available to purchase in the same way as all Wildscreen workshop tickets.
ROAR Talent workshops will be denoted in the programme with the ROAR Talent logo, as will all events within the strand.
ROAR Talent Bursary
The ROAR Talent bursaries will entitle each recipient to a complimentary Festival Delegate pass, valid for the entire week, which includes access to all delegate daytime sessions, social activities and a variety of exclusive professional development, training and networking opportunities.
It will also give access to the delegate lounge, networking breakfasts, and attendance at up to two Festival workshops each day, free of charge. Recipients will also be assigned a leading industry mentor who specialises in their area of interest, and receive an invitation to the renowned Panda Awards ceremony.
We will be awarding five ROAR Talent bursaries, with applications for the bursaries open to anyone that meets the eligibility criteria. The bursaries are aimed at young filmmakers aged 17-24 with a demonstrable interest in, and passion for, wildlife filmmaking and/or photography. If this sounds like you and you'd like to find out more about applying, or ROAR Talent in general, visit us here.
