Sue Martineau, interim CEO of Wildscreen, the UK-based not-for-profit conservation organisation behind Wildscreen Festival said:

Were thrilled to have successfully delivered the 2020 Wildscreen Festival and to now make it available on demand. We’re looking forward to sharing what we believe is one of our best programmes of events to date, with one of our largest global and diverse audiences. The 20th anniversary of Wildscreen Festival marked a unique and exciting new format for the event, but with everything that the industry has come to expect in terms of outstanding content and unrivalled access to industry leaders.

Id like to thank all our speakers, sponsors, partners and delegates as they supported Wildscreen Festivals transition to a virtual event, and helped us to continue to be bold and seeking new ways to reimagine the future of the festival, and our industry.”
