Wildscreen Recognises Production Management with Outstanding Achievement Award

During the 2022 Panda Awards, Chair of the Wildscreen Festival Advisory Board (FAB), Jeff Wilson, revealed that 2022 FAB Oustanding Achievement Award is dedicated to Production Management across the world, recognising their immense work behind the scenes over the course of the pandemic.

“And in the last few years, in the face of a fast changing, stressful and frankly exhausting production landscape, we have asked even more of our beating heart. We have run scenarios A through Z and asked of them a commitment to every plan as if it was the sole path forward. And staggeringly, they have again delivered.

“This award for Outstanding Achievement is to recognise each and every member of Production Management in each and every company whose mission it is  to give voice to the wonders and trials of our planet. Their contribution to the celebration and conservation of the natural world has always been equal to any other, and we at Wildscreen are determined that their achievement is recognised for what it has been, and will always be – The Heart of Production .”
