Special passes launched for Wild Film Festival Scotland

The new Wild Film Festival Scotland will not only be a fabulous weekend of films, special guests and events – but has special Feral passes and day tickets offering exceptional value.

Most films and events are just £5 when booked individually – but the more you see the better the deal.

Sid Ambrose, WFFS organiser, said: “We’ve got an outstanding programme of films and events with some of the world’s best wildlife films being screened.

“We want people to enjoy as many of them as they can so have come up with our Feral passes and day tickets so you can enjoy a full day, or whole weekend, of shows at a special low price – and choose extra ones for free.”

WFFS takes place in Dumfries from 24-26 March and its central themes will be Amazing Journeys, Wild Places and Rewilding. Some 30 films are being screened, many of them winners of coveted Wildscreen Panda Awards (the wildlife Oscars). They include:

  • Hebridean Summer: Europe’s final frontier against the wild and unpredictable Atlantic. Maramedia’s landmark film, narrated by Ewan McGregor, won the Panda Award winner for Best Series.
  • Bears: An epic story of breathtaking scale, Disneynature’s new true life adventure showcases a year in the life of a bear family as two impressionable young cubs are taught life’s most important lessons. Set against a majestic Alaskan backdrop teeming with life, their journey begins as winter comes to an end and the bears emerge from hibernation to face the bitter cold.
  • Life Story: Rare and extreme behaviours, some never recorded before. Startling scenes include a humpback whale blowing bubbles to defend a calf from shark attack and a goose chick’s death defying 400ft cliff jump.
  • The Hunt: Revealing the extraordinary techniques predators use to catch their prey. Winner of three Panda Awards.
  • India’s Wandering Lions: After a brush with extinction, the Asiatic lion is reclaiming its lost lands. But can lions and people truly settle their differences and live together?
  • Racing Extinction: Infiltrating dangerous international black markets and using hi-tech tactics to document the link between carbon emissions and extinctions. Never before seen images that change our view of the world.
  • Honey Hunters: A life story of bees and people. After watching “Honey Hunters” everyone wants to have their own beehive and harvest their own honey!

A strong Scottish strand will run through every aspect of the festival – which includes literature, music and art as well as film and photography.
