1) Major networking opportunities: Since its inception, the JHWFF has provided broadcasters, filmmakers and other industry professionals with a forum to conduct business, exchange ideas and enjoy each other’s creative bursts.
5) Jackson is likely to be sunny and warm during the day, leaving room for an endless list of activities such as:
- nature hikes,
- national park tours,
- fishing trips,
- scenic raft trips,
- kayak trips
- mountain biking
6) Because Jackson Hole is a premier tourist destination, opportunities to extend your visit are highly encouraged. The following websites are quite helpful: Planet Jackson Hole Online or Tetoninfo.org
7) Volunteer opportunities are available during the Festival. Call the office if you want to help with tech support, venue operations, special events, registration, set-up and/or pre-production (full-time, part-time, one day or multiple days). Volunteers gain access to seminars, panel discussions and film screenings.
8. Extend your stay to join the Community Festival being held the weekend after the Festival in downtown Jackson. Screenings of the 2009 Festival finalists and award winners will be played, followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers.
9) Meet people that will return for the JH Symposium for Applied Media Professionals in 2010– a conference for 300+ technology and non-broadcast media professionals.
10) JHWFF is dedicated to raising awareness and empowering action, through the innovative use of media. Who wouldn’t want to come watch and celebrate the world’s finest natural history films from production companies like National Geographic, BBC, Animal Planet, Discovery, independent filmmakers, a host of newcomers and many, many more…….?
