FESTIVAL FAQs

Seating in most venues is limited and on a first-come-first-served basis and Wildscreen cannot guarantee entry to all programmed events. You may be required to RSVP before the Festival for events that are expected to be particularly popular.

Pass holders will be emailed access to the virtual Festival platform in advance of the Festival.

Requests to transfer your ticket to an alternative person must be made in writing to bookings@wildscreen.org.uk before the festival begins. Such requests shall be approved or denied by Wildscreen in its sole discretion and a fee may be charged.

Virtual Passes (including Concession Virtual Passes) are not eligible for a refund. Other tickets are refundable until 10 August 2022. After this deadline refunds will only be issued in extreme circumstances at Wildscreen's discretion. A fee may be charged.

It is vital that we are all conscious of our impact on the planet when we are celebrating natural world storytelling. For this reason, we will implement preventative steps to ensure event impact is minimised. Wildscreen adheres to a bespoke environmental policy for each of our events, which you can read on our website. Read our full commitment here.
A small portion of each ticket purchase will go towards balancing the environmental impact of our event. We will calculate and publish a report detailing our event footprint and the steps taken to mitigate this.

Hybrid access means that more people than ever before can participate in our festival and make new connections.
Not only will we be welcoming delegates in person, but Wildscreen Festival 2022 will be accessible via livestream on a bespoke event platform during 10-14 October. All attendees will be able to continue to network, re-watch sessions and view our films for 3 months on our online platform, meaning you can tailor your experience and enjoy the festival for even longer!

You should be aware that you may be photographed or filmed at times throughout the event and the recordings may be distributed.
