Films, Lectures, Networking. The Wildlife Film Industries equivalent of Hollywood’s Oscars happens in Jackson Hole, Wyoming every other year. The best of the best in the wildlife film industry convene below the majestic 13,000 foot peaks of the Teton Mountain Range for jam packed days of films, networking, lectures, and fun. We hope you will join us for this year’s festival, September 23 -27th.
Internationally recognized as the premier event of its genre, the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival is an unparalleled industry gathering of more than 600 broadcast and media stakeholders, writers, leading scientists and conservationists. They converge from around the world to hone skills, explore emerging technologies and market opportunities, network with professional associates and honor notable achievements within the industry. The Grand Teton Awards honors top films selected from over 900 category entries.
Sessions include 3D editing workshops, Tech breakthroughs in Digital Imaging, Crowd Sourced Funding, and 3D showings of films and wildlife documentaries.
Keynote speakers this year include:
- Michael T. Jones, Google’s chief technology advocate
- Dame Daphne Sheldrick , author, conservationist and world authority on the raising and reintegrating of orphaned elephants into the wild
- Dereck & Beverly Joubert, award-winning filmmaking couple, National Geographic Explorers-in-Residence and wildlife conservationists, who have been filming, researching and exploring in Africa for over 30 years.
