From bees pollinating flowering plants in return for a tasty meal, to clownfish keeping anemones parasite-free in return for a safe hiding place, animals often get the best results when they work together, and so do those who tell their stories. That’s why filmmakers, photographers and conservationists are coming together for nature on 19 October in Manchester, for a groundbreaking event at Victoria Warehouse.

Wildscreen Festival takes place every two years in Bristol, and is well established as the leading international festival celebrating and advancing storytelling about the natural world through visual media. The charity also provides essential resources for wildlife learning, storytelling and collaboration through the Arkive and Exchange projects. Wildscreen Director Lucie Muir said, “We’re so excited to be taking Wildscreen on the road. We know two years is a long time to wait for your next Wildscreen Festival fix, so our new programme offers the chance to network, learn and share throughout the year.”

Wildscreen Manchester: Symbiotic Stories, sponsored by Panasonic VariCam, is the first of a series of roadshow events bringing together visual storytellers and conservation organisations to forge relationships and projects that will inspire people to protect the natural world. The event will offer inspiring speakers from the world of wildlife television, film and photography – including a keynote from filmmaker and photographer Adrian Steirn. There will be masterclasses with BBC, Google, Wildscreen Exchange and more, giving practical tips on how to get your ideas into production, and plenty of networking opportunities.
