Jackson Wild Summit 2020 - Register

Jackson Wild™ Summit & Media Labs Go Virtual
By Jackson Wild
27th July 2020

Jackson Wild is delighted to announce a virtual programming expansion for 2020, allowing the organization to reach a broader, more global audience than ever before.

Jackson Wild Summit 2020 - Virtual

This year, we are making the most of this collective pause by reflecting on the state of the industry through action committees tasked with reimagining the transformative power of our community. At the heart of the Summit, we will work together on tangible actions that make our industry more diverse, inclusive, green, and impactful.

By eliminating the physical barriers associated with travel and by also significantly reducing registration fees, Jackson Wild is leaning into creating deeper connections through an expanded slate of one-on-one mentorship, collaborative committees, and pitching experiences than have ever been possible before.

Jackson Wild remains committed to elevating global voices and early career filmmakers by hosting a digital edition of the Jackson Wild Media Lab, created with HHMI/Tangled Bank Studios and Day's Edge Productions, as well as a greatly expanded virtual Fellowship and Mentorship programs. Applications are now open for all programs!

"The challenge facing each of us is how can we, individually and collectively, amplify and accelerate change to help drive new solutions to the challenges we are facing?" asks Jackson Wild Executive Director Lisa Samford. "What can we do together, alongside this uncommon community, to inspire our combined audiences of billions of people to better care for all life on our beautiful planet? At a time when nothing less than the fate of our world is at stake, there is no better place and no better company to tackle these questions than at the 2020 Jackson Wild Summit."

Modeled directly on its longstanding history of creating intimate and high impact convenings, this year's virtual Jackson Wild Summit will showcase this year's best and most innovative nature and conservation media and presents unique sessions that directly engage with thought leaders and innovators in science, conservation and media to:

  • Action Committees
  • Science & Storytelling Roundtables
  • Workshops
  • Digital Networking
  • Mentorships
  • Speed Pitching
  • Global Partner Events
  • Keynotes
  • Panels
  • Masterclasses
  • Finalist & Award-Winning Films
  • Premieres
