Our friends at Wildscreen have announced that our CEO Laura Marshall will take over as the Chair of its new-look board. Marshall will be joined by professionals from the BBC, Silverback Films and more.

Alongside this exciting news, Wildscreen have also announced the acquisition of the Natural History Network. Designed to support the global wildlife TV business through news, events, networking and talent recruitment, we couldn’t think of a better place for them than with Wildscreen.

Laura Marshall has noted that “the Network is a natural fit for Wildscreen and its vision of an ongoing, global convening of wildlife content industry and conservationists”. She also emphasised the sustainability focus of Wildscreen’s festival, coming to Bristol in October 2020, “at a time when our planet needs bold and impactful stories to change the behaviour of the global community.”

Wildscreen is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to bringing conservation to the creative industries; their recurring festival will return to Bristol in October 2020. You can read more about their new board and the exciting changes coming to Wildscreen here.
