  • The only festival of its kind to get up-close and personal with leading independent filmmakers! Be part of our team to help make a difference for our planet! At the Wildlife Conservation Film Festival the audience can interact with leading independent filmmakers and global conservation scientists. New York Festival, February, 2013
  • The mission of Wildlife Conservation Film Festivals (WCFF) is to inform, engage and empower audiences about the protection of species and habitats that are critical to the survival of our planet. We produce signature events nationwide that screen some of the finest independent films from around the world covering topics across fields of natural history and conservation biology. The WCFF shows in a powerful visual forum how wildlife preservation impacts our day-to-day lives. Specifically, our films connect the dots between saving species from extinction and preserving the Earth’s precious resources of food, water and clean air for our own survival. Now in its fourth year, the New York WCFF attracts a diverse audience that leaves our screenings inspired and filled with renewed purpose to get involved. The WCFF has become a must-attend event for thought-leaders in biodiversity, film and major conservation organizations. We are proud to present audience members with the rare opportunity to engage in conversation with filmmakers and conservationists directly. SUMMARY AND MISSION STATEMENT
