Thank you to the event management team, and the UWE MA Wildlife Film student Volunteers, led by Lucy Muir and Nicola Reeves, for their hard work and for putting on such a slick show. This understated team kept a low profile, but worked their socks off to give us all a really excellent and memorable Festival !  

 

In NHN's opinion it was the best, most egalatarian, most eco friendly Wildscreen Festival yet. The hub tent worked briliantly as the unpretentious centre for the Festival, with vegan drinks and food on tap.
