(Re)Connecting Wild tells the remarkable story of the decade-long effort by the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) and its partners to improve human safety by re-connecting a historic mule deer migration that crosses over both US-93 and I-80 in rural Elko County, Nevada. Witness the wildlife crossing structures along I-80 from construction to the restoration of safe passage for migratory mule deer to more than 1.5 million acres of summer and winter habitat. Language: english [12 minutes]

It is perfectly normal for animal and plant species to become extinct. To a certain degree. But extinction is currently happening a thousand times faster than the normal rate. Why? Because we have caused the start of the sixth great species extinction event in the history of the earth. It will not end by itself. We have to act - NOW! This short engaging movie is part of the campaign #6 Fighting Extinction. The campaign’s aim: raising awareness about global species extinction. Because: without biodiversity, there is no future. Time’s up! Language: english [1 minute]

What is a mass extinction - and why do scientists say that we are at the beginning of the 6th great extinction in the history of the earth?

NatureNow is a personal and passionate call to arms from Greta Thunberg and George Monbiot to use nature to heal our broken climate. Made with no flights, recycled footage and zero net carbon. Given away for free. Viewed over 60 Million times. Language: english [4 minutes]

The Himalayas, a region turning from the lowest to the highest place of the world. Nawang (20), nicknamed “Mumtta (rapid horse),” is busy herding Yak. Not suffering from the lack of oxygen, Nawang is running through the mountain ranges at a height of 5,000 meters above sea level. When it begins to snow the mountains freeze, leaving the village isolated for six months.

8 Billion Angels is an immersive journey that invites the viewer to consider the complex interconnection between humanity’s growth and expansion and the environment. This award winning documentary shares stories of individuals around the world impacted by unsustainable population growth, giving faces and voices to an issue that is often relegated to the shadows of our personal, political and international discussions.

One must hurry to get downwards before that. Deep inside the Himalayas, the breath of Nawang and his Yaks is being swallowed. The Altiplano Plateau in the Andes is a land made by volcanoes. Within the alive and breathing volcanic region lies a salt lake, as red as flames. Sneaking upon the flamingos with stone slings, the Chippaya try to catch flamingoes. The freezing and melting cycle of the Andes simultaneously breathes out breaths as cold as glaciers and fiery as volcanoes.

A Natural Code

A Predicament of Pangolins

20-0016 Emerging Filmmaker

20-0017 360° Storytelling

This is a short wildlife documentary about the fascinating turing patterns in nature and how they may help endangered species around the world. The first half of the film introduces three characters - a science writer, Philip Ball and two mathematicians, Natasha Ellison and Philip Maini. They will take us on a quest to explain who Alan Turing was and what is his connection with patterns in nature. Alan Turing was able to explain, using two mathematical equations, how the patterns arise in nature, from zebra stripes and leopard spots to landscapes and even animal movements. This is quintessential for the story, as we will later show how this can help endangered species. The second part of the film is showing how these patterns can help with conservation. The main example for this will be the beautiful patterns of a whale shark, as their spot point configuration forms a Turing pattern. The last person introduced will be Iru, the Lead Field Coordinator of the Maldives Whale Shark Research. Through her, viewers will discover how the team can identify individual whale sharks by their unique spots on their skin. Natasha Ellison specialises in models which describe ecological processes. This means she can describe the patterns formed by animal movements, using Turing’s pattern formation theory. She will explain to the viewers that the patterns can also exist in the way the animals use their landscape. Where animal coat patterns are created by chemical reactions, animal movement patterns are created by behaviours, such as foraging for food or avoiding predators. Language: english [10 minutes]

Based on true events, A Predicament of Pangolins is an immersive live-action story following two wild pangolins in South Africa’s Kalahari desert in a bid to survive environmental shifts. Aimed at younger audiences, it is part nature documentary and part psychology experiment in bridging the cognitive gap to climate change which is a difficult phenomenon to witness and thus take ownership of. Despite being rooted in conservation research being undertaken by the Tswalu Foundation in that region, A Predicament of Pangolins is told in an anthropomorphic style giving the two characters their own voices and personalities to foster more empathy in audiences to drive home the urgency of climate change.

Aditya Singh left Delhi and moved to Sawai Madhopur in Rajasthan just outside Ranthambore Tiger Reserve, to be closer to nature. Gradually, over the last 20 years, Singh bought over 35 acres of land, which shares its boundary with the tiger reserve for over $132K and left it to grow wild. The area that was once agricultural or barren is now a thriving ecosystem frequented by wild animals, including endangered tigers, throughout the year. An undisturbed land with two large watering holes acts as a safe space for wild animals that venture out of the reserve. Language: English [4 minutes]

The rivers and creeks of Maryland’s Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay once seemed endless havens of beauty and abundance, but tragically we have polluted these treasures. Water quality is poor. Excess nutrients create algae growth, which chokes out light, oxygen, underwater grasses and estuarine life. But thanks to our professional and volunteer riverkeepers, there is hope. Dedicated scientists, environmental activists, educators, volunteers, and policy and legal advocates are working daily to conserve and restore our rivers. Language: english [29 minutes]

The Chihuahua Desert is considered one of the arid regions with the greatest wealth of species in the world. At the current rate of loss, it is estimated that by 2025, its natural grasslands will disappear in the state of Chihuahua, Mexico alone. In this documentary, conservation film director Mauricio de la Maza-Benignos registers in images, interviews and the poetry of Claudia Luna-Fuentes, “for the perpetual memory of things”, the tragedy that has been taking place in this part of the world. This is from an ecological, economic and cultural perspective related to the historical availability of land and water for agriculture. He invites us to reflect on the need for a change of perspective in water management. Furthermore, he seeks to respond, from the perspectives of the stakeholders influencing the conservation status of this ecosystem, to the question, who is responsible? and reports on the status of endemic and obligatory grassland species that are at risk of extinction. Language: Spanish [70 minutes]

Despite the growing persistence of environmental change, human resourcefulness remains alive and well as people across the globe experiment with adaptive methods on the ground. In ADAPTATION: Kentucky, scientist and National Geographic Explorer Alizé Carrère travels to a small town in western Kentucky to meet Angie Yu, a ChineseAmerican woman who is turning the Mississippi River’s invasive Asian Carp problem into an environmental and economic triumph. While Americans may want nothing to do with this bony fish, other parts of the world consider carp a resource – one to be cherished and celebrated. Can Americans learn to do the same?

The staff of South Africa’s Manyoni Private Game Reserve passionately care for some of the world’s most exotic and endangered wild animals. From treating elephant foot infections to testing cheetahs for tuberculosis, they never know what to expect each day. Language: english [18 minutes]

African Parks takes on the complete responsibility for rehabilitation and longterm management of 15 national parks on the continent, in partnership with governments and local communities. The non-profit conservation organization works to conserve Africa’s wildlife and remaining wild areas, secure vast landscapes and carry out the necessary activities needed to protect the parks and their wildlife for the benefit of people. Through the help of GIS, the team can analyze and understand wildlife movements and various threats to predict where poachers may strike next. This use of GIS for conservation intelligence gives park rangers the additional tools they need to go beyond analysis of the past - dynamically-assessing the present and transforming data for management to make decisions that realign conservation with its intended outcomes, ensuring that each park is ecologically, socially, and financially sustainable in the long-term. Language: english [3 minutes]

At night the hunters of Africa come out of their hiding places. The film presents the different deadly strategies that lions, leopards and hyenas use to hunt at night. They are equipped with “super senses”, that enable them to find their prey in complete darkness while staying invisible themselves. Extremely light sensitive lenses and thermal-cameras reveal a dramatic struggle through the night. Language: english [50 minutes]

With many of Africa’s key species, including elephants, heading toward extinction, Akashinga is a radical, new and highly effective weapon against poaching. Founded in Zimbabwe by former Australian special forces soldier and anti-poaching leader Damien Mander, the women-only team of rangers, drawn from the abused and marginalized, is revolutionizing the way animals are protected, communities are empowered -- and its members’ own lives are being transformed. Mander’s innovative approach to conservation calls for community buy-in rather than full-on armed assault against poachers: If a community understands the economic benefits of preserving animals, then it will eliminate poaching without an armed struggle. Executive produced by threetime Academy Award winner James Cameron and directed by Maria Wilhelm, AKASHINGA: THE BRAVE ONES is a celebration of the courage, conservation and unorthodox thinking that’s leading to massive positive change.

America’s Wild Seasons: Summer

American Ocelot

20-0032 Writing, Editing

20-0033 Conservation Long-Form

As the Earth journeys around the sun, the changing seasons impact all wildlife. In America, summer brings long, warm days and plenty of opportunities. A journey across this vast landscape reveals the surprising ways animals make the most of this busy season. Competition for mates can be fierce. Massive bison go head to head on the Yellowstone Plateau while tiny fireflies light up the Great Smokey Mountains. Summer is the time to learn new skills. A young eagle takes his first flight in the Midwest while owl chicks in the Great Plains struggle to survive a badger attack. But most of all, summer is the time to seize nature’s bounty while it lasts. A pika rushes to stockpile alpine flowers while brown bears in Alaska feast on the salmon run. Summer is the peak season for the Wild American Year. Language: English [51 minutes]

With fewer than 100 individuals remaining in the US, the ocelot is critically endangered, genetically isolated, and only exists in Texas. Despite hundreds of millions spent on land acquisition, research, and conservation, ocelot numbers and habitat have steadily decreased since it was listed as an endangered species. But there is hope. Their genetics can be rescued by translocations from Mexico and suitable habitat exists on private lands.... if an agreement can be made on their management methods. American Ocelot provides a glimpse into the lives of this elusive species, explores the nuances of the Endangered Species Act, and aims to invigorate ocelot recovery. Language: english [33 minutes]

America’s Wild Seasons: Spring America’s Wild Seasons: Summer

America’s Wild Seasons: Spring After the dark, cold winter, spring bursts forth, dazzling the countryside with new growth and new life. Wildlife gets busy in the long, warm days. It’s prime time for babies, making them and raising them. Millions of shorebirds set off on incredible journeys that will take them to the top of the planet, to feed and breed. In New Jersey, they cross paths with the mysterious horseshoe crab that spawns on the beach, gifting the birds with eggs to fuel their trip north. In the Hawaiian Islands, another animal is on the move - straight up. Goby fish climb a colossal waterfall an Everest-sized feat for the tiny fish. For the young born in spring, it’s a vulnerable time. In Alaska, a sea otter must leave her helpless pup to fish. In Minnesota, a massive boar threatens a family of black bear cubs. In the Wisconsin woodlands, ducklings face a perilous leap to reach their home pond. And for animals still searching for mates, competition is fierce. Mustang horses battle for females on California’s high-altitude plains while alligators go snout to snout in the Florida swamps. Even prairie fowl get in on the action, turning the Great Plains into a giant dance party, where they win over the females with fancy footwork. It’s a wild ride in Spring in the Wild American Year.

Ancient Caves brings science and adventure together as it follows paleoclimatologist Dr. Gina Moseley on a mission to unlock the secrets of the Earth’s climate in the most unlikely of places: caves. Until recently, scientists had no reliable way to accurately study the climate of Earth’s distant past. Moseley and her team of cave explorers travel the world exploring vast underground worlds in search of stalagmite samples - geologic “fingerprints” - that reveal clues about the planet’s climate history. Their quest leads them to some of the world’s most remote caves, both above and below the water, in France, Iceland, the Bahamas, the U.S. and Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, where they study how rapidly Earth’s climate can change, and how it has affected human civilization. Together, they go where very few humans will ever go, revealing the incredible lengths scientists will go to study the unknown. Language: english [40 minutes]

Life in the sea rebounded with a vengeance in the Devonian. Dozens of monstrous predators emerged, like the 40-foot long Dunkleosteus. Nearly everything was wiped out in Earth’s second mass extinction. But the stage was set for an explosion of life on land. Language: english [12 minutes]

For nearly 4 billion years, the continents of Earth were lifeless. But during the Ordovician, there was an explosion of life beneath the sea. Many strange creatures evolved, from eel-like conodonts to voracious cephalopods, until nearly all life was wiped out in our planet’s first mass extinction. Language: english [10 minutes]

To flatten the coronavirus curve, people everywhere have been advised to stay away from each other in hopes of containing the spread of COVID-19. As we transition into a new reality with little to no in-person socializing, we can look to nature for examples of how to cope with isolation. And when it comes to certain animals, though they may be apart for months of the year, they always find a way back to each other, bonds fully intact. Language: English [5 minutes]

The coastal plain on the northern coast of Alaska is a unique place. For millennia it has been the summer home for huge herds of caribou and countless migratory birds. The area supports a greater variety of plant and animal life than any other protected area in the Arctic Circle. This is the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. This film shows the splendor, enormous scope and indescribable beauty of this untouched land far to the north of Alaska, one of the last havens for caribou herds and polar bears. Shot over a period of four years, this film offers a unique insight in the lives of the most charismatic arctic animals. Outstanding aerial photography captures the scope and epic dimensions of the annual caribou migration, revealing the many dangers the herds encounter on the way. Awe-inspiring footage shows how wolves and grizzlies strategically stalk and attack the herds. Language: english [50 minutes]

Our Universe may not be as barren as we once believed. Beyond Earth, life could exist in the most desolate of places. In February 2019, after hurtling 300 million kilometers from Earth, the Japanese space probe Hayabusa 2 landed on the asteroid Ryugu. We follow the team behind the mission, as they sample parts of the asteroid and return it to our planet. Will we learn more about our origins here on Earth from this seemingly cold and dead object?

Along the East African coast few know the ocean better than the Swahili people, their culture is born of the ocean. This short film is a fusion of stories from respected fishermen from the Lamu Archipelago, sharing their experiences of over half a century sailing these waters, as well as stories from their fathers and grandfathers who taught them their trade. Take a unique glimpse underwater, encounter some of the charismatic marine animals found in these waters, delve into an ancient and wise culture and learn about the issues our ocean is facing and why we need to save it. Language: Kiswahili [11 minutes]

What happens when an animal perishes in the depth of the forest? Who clears up the remains? Why aren’t we surrounded by carcasses? After all, death is a constant and universal visitor ... Science is on the trail of a macabre challenge: to dissect in detail what happens to dead animals in the wild. Every death means life for zillions of other living organisms: it is the initiator of a complex cycle we all depend upon. But despite its importance, we know relatively little about the animals that move in after a body has died, the organisms that radically change the body’s chemistry, and the plants that recycle the valuable nutrients contained in every carcass. A film about life after death. Language: english [52 minutes]

The film follows how a workshop in wildlife photography changes their lives. Armed with a camera, the trio aim to rise above their difficult pasts and “reframe” the narrative of wildlife conservation. Queen becomes one of the only black female field guides in South Africa while Rifumo and Wisani start a business together. The trio have one goal - to inspire the youth from their community to protect our natural heritage. Language: English [12 minutes]

When 12-year-old Reshat looks around, he sees the oil fields of Azerbaijan. When he looks up dreamily, he sees pigeons flying to heaven. He misses his father, who died a year ago, and who also loved these birds. Reshat cautiously approaches the best pigeon keeper in the village. Will he teach him to train pigeons? Reshat plays with his friends, visits his father’s grave, looks at old photos with his grandmother and does his homework because his mother tells him to. But he prefers to be with the pigeon keeper. While Reshat is learning all about pigeons, he discovers what he really wants. Language: Azerbaijani [22 minutes]

Astronomer Shep Doeleman and his team are on a mission that will challenge the theories of Albert Einstein and could pave the way to a revolution in physics: to capture the first-ever image of a black hole.

Breathe! At 17 million acres, the Tongass is not only America’s largest national forest, it’s the largest intact temperate rainforest in the world. It stores and absorbs vast amounts more carbon than any other forest in the United States. Over the protests of Alaskans, Americans, and sovereign indigenous governments, the Trump Administration plans to strip protections for more than 9 million acres of the forest -- in order to open the land up for roads, clearcut old growth logging, and industrialization. This would plunge our world further into a climate emergency. Language: english [2 minutes]

In the days after Hurricane Katrina, a group of ordinary citizens came together with one goal: to pull people from the water. The government had failed New Orleans, during one of the biggest natural disasters of our time and it was up to the people to get the job done. The group filled with fishermen, lawyers, and housewives were known as the Cajun Navy. With intimate access to these heroic men and women during Hurricane Florence and Hurricane Michael, CAJUN NAVY chronicles the inspiring, spontaneous grass-roots efforts from a movement that started during Hurricane Katrina and continues today. Language: english [84 minutes]

An intimate portrait of a family of capuchin monkeys living in the harsh, semi-arid forest of north-eastern Brazil. These monkeys must rely on all their ingenuity and remarkable skills to survive here. If they want to become independent, youngsters must learn the strategies of their group: hunting, finding water, digging to extract roots, and even using stone tools to crack open palm nuts. These techniques and behaviours are transmitted to the offspring and represent the culture of this population, traditions passed across the generations to face the challenges of the Brazilian wilderness.

Populations of cephalopods (the extensive mollusc family that includes cuttlefish, squid, and octopuses) are currently undergoing an explosion. Travel around the world, from the abyssal trenches to remote coral reefs, to unveil the secrets of their success. Language: english [52 minutes]

With help from us and some leading travel companies, elephant venue ChangChill - formerly Happy Elephant Valley - has become elephant-friendly and stopped visitors directly interacting with its animals. ChangChill, based in Chiang Mai, Thailand, started its journey towards becoming truly elephant-friendly in 2017. Now it’s reopened its doors, offering a better life for elephants and a unique experience for visitors. The transition allows the six resident female elephants the freedom to roam the valley, graze, and bathe in the river, mud and dust, while socializing with each other. Visitors are no longer able to ride, bathe or directly feed the elephants, which are cruel activities. Language: english [16 minutes]

Florida’s fragile coral reefs are in crisis. Once vibrant cities of the sea, these biodiverse ecosystems have declined over the past few decades. Fishing pressures, pollution, development, and climate change have all left their mark. Now, a new ailment known as “Stony Coral Tissue Loss Disease” may be the last nail in the coffin. This disease is infecting over half of the reef-building corals at an unprecedented scale, killing most of the corals that get sick. But all hope is not lost. Experts of varying backgrounds are working diligently to figure out what is causing the disease, while simultaneously developing techniques to treat outbreaks and restore the sunshine state’s coral reefs to their former glory.

In their quest to identify the pollinator of the ghost orchid for the first time, this team of conservation photographers and scientists spent three summers standing waist-deep in alligator- and snakeladen water, swatting air blackened by mosquitoes, and climbing to sometimes nausea-inducing heights. They came away with an even deeper love for Florida’s wildest wetlands--and with surprising discoveries that may help to conserve both the endangered orchid and its shrinking home. Language: english [16 minutes]

Faced with worsening floods and a prized salmon population on the brink of extinction, communities along Washington’s Chehalis River must decide how to prepare for climate impacts and if a new dam is the answer. Language: english [60 minutes]

As climate change alters the planet in ever changing ways, the contribution of methane from natural sources is beginning to amplify human generated methane. See the beauty of methane bubbles captured in frozen lakes and learn how Arctic permafrost is becoming a contributor to a warmer world. Language: english [6 minutes]

Trophy hunting has all but destroyed the magnificent bull elks in the western United States. The last of these amazing animals find protection in the national parks and refuges. Filmmaker Darryl Saffer traveled to the Rocky Mountain National Park to film the rut and nearly became extinct himself. Language: english [13 minutes]

Congo’s Call of the Wild travels to the heart of Africa’s biggest rainforest to capture the challenges facing rangers, conservationists, local communities and wildlife living in and around Salonga National Park. In an age when zoonotic diseases have paralyzed the planet, the film also examines a deadly respiratory outbreak killing endangered bonobos in Congo’s Mai-Ndombe province. Bush meat hunters setting snares for smaller game may have inadvertently carried the disease into the jungle. But the good news is that local village chiefs in Malebo are keen to protect bonobos for a budding eco-tourism project. Language: english [60 minutes]

At a time when we are bombarded with COVID-19 information comes a moment of clarity - and a warning we cannot afford to ignore. We ask - who is really behind this pandemic? Find out in revealing dialogues with scientists, experts and activists like conservation icon Jane Goodall and environmental hero Captain Paul Watson from Sea Shephard. Their stories combine with raw, up to date images and Terra Mater’s classic, inspiring blue-chip footage, in a film to make you pause, feel and act. Language: english [52 minutes]

Corsica Mountains in the Sea

Cries Of Our Ancestors

20-0064 Impact Campaign

20-0065 Ecosystem Long-Form, Original Music Score

20-0066 Non-Broadcast

Flying Pigs and spectacular mass-combats of mouflons – Corsica´s animals are quite special. At first glance, Corsica looks like a Mediterranean paradise with fine, sandy beaches. Behind the beaches, sheer rock walls rise into the sky. Corsica is the most mountainous island in the Med! Its peaks are covered with snow until summer – a harsh habitat where new sub-species and behaviors abound. This film takes us on a journey from Corsica´s highest peaks to the Mediterranean Sea and discovers unique animals only existing here, being rare in the rest of Europe or showing different behavior than their relatives on the mainland. Language: english [50 minutes]

In the highlands of Guinea, people and chimpanzees live peacefully side by side. Myths and stories -- and a mutual respect for one another -- have preserved this relationship for generations. Now, however, both people and chimpanzees are being pushed out of their homes by bauxite mining, which risks killing thousands of chimpanzees and displacing tens of thousands of people. Once sharing the same water source and fruits from the land, both now struggle to survive. Guinea has the largest population of chimpanzees in West Africa. Protecting their home in Guinea is one of their last chances of survival. Language: english [19 minutes]

The current Covid-19 virus is just the latest in a long line of examples that demonstrate a worrying trend. Over the last century, at least ten infectious diseases have passed from animals to humans, concealing an unpalatable truth: this can happen because we let it. Both SARS and COVID-19 are in the coronavirus family, and both appear to have emerged from animals in China’s wet markets. Scientists predicted that these markets, known to be potential sources of disease, would be the source of a virus outbreak. It’s thought that Covid-19 may have passed from bats to humans through pangolins, the most trafficked mammal in the world. Our new video explores how the illegal wildlife trade and captive breeding of wild animals can lead to the transmission of new, potentially deadly diseases.

Dampa Hmathlir Thinking About The Future

20-0068 Conservation Long-Form

20-0069 Global Voices

CURRENT SEA is an environmental thriller that examines the difficulties of ocean conservation in Cambodia. It follows Matt Blomberg, an investigative journalist who learns about the epidemic of illegal and destructive fishing vessels that operate with impunity in Cambodia’s ocean. During his investigations, Matt learns about Paul Ferber, who patrols a small conservation zone near a remote island he call’s home in order to attempt to stop the illegal fishing. Meanwhile, his organization continues to conduct research to prove that their conservation efforts are working in an effort to convince the Cambodian government to create a much larger marine conservation area covering the Kep archipelago. Language: english [87 minutes]

Dampa Hmathlir - Thinking About The Future The buffer zone around a part of Dampa Tiger Reserve is surrounded by palm oil plantations. Promoted by the government claiming assured economic viability, farmers took up these plantations only to realize that in a couple of years water availability was affected, the soil had lost its vitality, and the rich biodiversity of the area was under threat. Farmers are now looking at new options for cultivation in the hope of saving their lands and their livelihoods. Language: english [10 minutes]

The new movie from the director of CANTÁBRICO transports us to a completely unknown environment on the Iberian Peninsula, known as the DEHESA. This grassland dotted with trees is quite unique within a worldwide context and offers us a series of diverse sensations. Holm oaks, cork trees and gall-oaks shape a battlefield in which large herbivores range and elegant and stealthy Iberian lynxes and formidable eagles hunt, one in which flowers conceal predators replete with astonishing camouflage. But it is also a welcoming place that receives thousands of long-distance travellers each year, who set up camp here for the winter. Language: Spanish [94 minutes]

A team of scientists travel aboard the Greenpeace ship Esperanza to Elephant Island, a remote island off the Antarctic peninsula to understand how penguin populations are faring. A census was organised by researchers from Stony Brook University, North Eastern University and Greenpeace to study the impact of climate change on fragile chinstrap penguin colonies on the island. Language: english [15 minutes]

Cheetahs, the world’s fast land mammals, are racing towards extinction. In 1975, 14,000 cheetahs roamed Africa. Today there are only 7,100 cheetahs left in all of Africa and only 600 in Kenya. The biggest reason for their decline here is the fencing off of Kenya’s wild spaces. Uncontrolled development cuts off the wildlife corridors needed by this most endangered of the big cats. This is a story about the cheetah’s fight for survival as they leap into the 21st Century. Language: English [25 minutes]

Genetic bottlenecking has plagued the Florida panthers since the early 1980s. To counteract this problem the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission created the Florida Panther Project. Their goal was to introduce new genes into the Florida panther’s gene pool to diversify the species and save them from extinction. Language: english [12 minutes]

Eye of the Pangolin is the groundbreaking story of two men on a mission to get all four species of African pangolin on camera for the very first time. As they travel the African continent to learn more about those caring for and studying pangolins they are captivated by these strange, secretive creatures and document the race to save them from being poached to extinction. Language: english [45 minutes]

Secret dramas, survival strategies and strong personalities are revealed among the birds in the idyllic setting of a European garden. Through the seasons, songbirds compete for food sources, always on the lookout for their two deadly enemies: the cat lurking on the threshold and the sparrowhawk swooping in from beyond the garden fence, while the Aesculapian snake slithers in to grab any unattended eggs. Robins, wrens, blue tits, blackbirds, swallows, swifts and starlings are the surprising stars of this film, that recasts our view of apparently familiar territory. Language: english [50 minutes]

Biologist Mary Whitfield of the Southern Sierra Research Station has spent two decades studying one of North America’s rarest birds: the Southwestern Willow Flycatcher. At her research sites in California’s Kern River Valley, populations have dwindled to just a few pairs. Saving these birds is a challenge because they migrate south to Latin America in the winter. And surprisingly, we don’t know much about their migratory route... or the migratory movements of many North America’s most familiar birds. If we don’t know where migratory birds spend the winter or how they get there, how can we protect them? To help her precious flycatchers, Mary has joined a cuttingedge effort called the Bird Genoscape Project (BGP). Led by Kristen Ruegg and Tom Smith, the BGP gathers data on birds’ genomes from individual feathers, allowing the researchers to connect breeding and wintering populations of the same species and provide critical information to conservationists and managers. Just as importantly, the project brings together researchers from all over the Americas in an effort to protect the birds that tie the Western Hemisphere together. Language: english [15 minutes]

Felicia - The Life of an Octopus Fisherwoman

Flying Elephants

20-0091 People & Nature Short-Form, Emerging Filmmaker

20-0092 Micro-Movie, Global Voices, Changing Planet Short-Form

The film focuses on the life of one woman, whose story aims to shed light on the vicious link between poverty and environmental degradation in Madagascar and beyond. After losing her father at age 13, Felicia turns to the sea as a means for sustenance, even when migration, commercial trawling, and cultural loss make small-scale fishing operations an increasingly challenging way of life. Felicia continues to harvest scarce resources not out of ignorance but out of necessity. Her life story, filled with hardships and setbacks, also reveals the resolute temperament that characterizes her and many other women in Madagascar - and the world. Language: Malagasy (Vezo Dialect) [11 minutes]

The seemingly invincible Asian elephant is being decimated across Asia as its home is lost to the expansion of the human world. “A Mother’s Tale” is inspired by a mythological fable, Gaja Shastra, that depicts these giants as they were recognised thousands of years ago mystical and other-worldly. The short film, told through the eyes of a mother elephant, pits their glorious past against this century’s reality of survival in the anthropocene, where elephants are run down by trains, electrocuted by fences, slaughtered for their tusks and burnt in retaliation for damage of crops. Language: Tribal Language, Subtitled in English [6 minutes]

Foxes are true survivors, at home in all regions of the Earth and able to adapt to many man-made changes. Nowadays, the smart animals also feel at home in our cities. As an example, a close-knit clan, made up of several generations of foxes, has been living in Berlins government district for many years. A few Kilometres further, at the Innsbruck Square traffic hub, a male fox enjoys his role as a faithful family man to the full. A completely different wind blows for the foxes in many parts of the countryside. High up in the North on the German coast, a vixen raises her litter alone. Rarely is there enough to feed everyone. Like after a storm, for example, when the vixen finds a lot to eat in the drift line on the beach. The little ones have to grow up fast, as once the autumn arrives, their single parent mother’s reserves are exhausted and she drives them out of her territory. For more than two years, filmmakers Roland Gockel and Rosie Koch kept track of the foxes in Berlin, Hamburg and on the North German coast. With the help of several hidden, buried and camouflaged cameras, they were able to unearth many secrets of the clever, yet camera-shy animals.

Deep in the African rainforest of Gabon, a crack team is tracking a 180-kilogram silverback with a bouncer’s physique, called Mussiru. They must get close to be accepted into his world. But this is no mountain gorilla of ‘Gorillas in the Mist’ fame. Seldom seen by humans in the wild, this gorilla species is shyer, more aggressive and spread over a much bigger rainforest. It will take a journey to a distant land, wracked by war and turmoil, to find the holy grail this team needs to safeguard Mussiru and save the very rainforest itself. Language: english [49 minutes]

20-0099 People & Nature Short-Form

From Executive Producer Fernando Meirelles (Academy Award-Nominated Director of City of God & The Constant Gardener), Great Green Wall follows Malian musician Inna Modja on an epic journey along Africa’s Great Green Wall -- an ambitious vision to grow an 8,000km ‘wall’ of trees stretching across the entire continent to fight back against runaway climate change, severe resource scarcity, increased conflict, and mass migration. If the wall is completed by 2030, it will become the largest living structure on earth, three times the size of the Great Barrier Reef -- a new world wonder. Language: English and English subtitles for French, Bambara, [90 minutes]

The tribulations of a documentarist, who, in order to help an old famous botanist in his fight to preserve the Tropical Forests, decides to make a feature film, an ecological thriller, that would alert the world opinion - like Blood diamond did for the illegal trafic of diamonds - As documentaries are often seen by people already convinced. Language: French, subtitled in English [95 minutes]

Guardians of Ua Huka follows Tuhuna, our guardian, as he explores this remote island, taking in its ancient culture and unique wildlife. Situated in the remote Marquesas islands of French Polynesia, this island is the only inhabited island in the region not to have been infested with black rats, which not only affect island livelihoods, but would also kill the native bird species that are found no where else. The film looks at the interwoven life of islanders on the island with the natural world around them, living both with and off of the land, air and sea. Language: Marquesan, English subtitles [10 minutes]

20-0101 Changing Planet Long-Form

20-0102 Cinematography, Editing

In the emptiness of the universe, Earth is alive because of water. Humanity’s relationship with this simple molecule is everything. H2O The Molecule That Made Us is a 3-hour series dramatically revealing how water underpins every aspect of our existence. Segments from across the planet, intimate documentary, and natural history cinematography combine to uncover dramatic discoveries, compelling characters, and important stories about this mysterious molecule. Language: English [168 minutes]

H2O The Molecule That Made Us Hour 3 CRISIS examines how the planet’s changing water cycle is forcing us to change our relationship with water. An increasingly globalized agricultural industry has become expert at turning precious water reserves into profit, “mining” water faster than it can be replaced. In its conclusion, the series visits locations such as New York City, a surprising model for sustainable water infrastructure, and hope emerges that the water crisis is solvable. Language: English [56 minutes]

H2O The Molecule That Made Us Hour 1 PULSE opens on the distant rock and ice of Greenland, where Geologist Stephen Mojzsis reveals a new theory on how water first arrived on Planet Earth. We see a dragonfly’s incredible journey from India to Africa - the world’s longest insect migration. We meet the Munoz family, ‘bloom chasers’, who use cutting edge time-lapse photo rigs to show the rare spectacle of deserts around the world exploding from barren wastelands into rich carpets of flowers. But the pulse of water is under threat. Language: English [56 minutes]

This short documentary was part of an initiative to record and demonstrate the unique, biodiverse marine habitats of the Scottish north coast in the hope of creating a case for local marine protection. The focus of the film, and the accompanying marine survey for Wildland Ltd, is the most remote stretch of coast on the UK mainland - 40 miles of towering limestone cliffs, sandy bays, estuaries, islands and a deep-water sea loch. The varied geology has created a wide range of marine habitats which support biodiverse marine communities but while largely unspoilt, they have suffered from industrial aquaculture. Language: english [30 minutes]

In the Darhat valley in northern Mongolia, the horses of nomadic tribes are disappearing. Bandits steal horses from their owners, and sell them for a few rubles in Russian slaughterhouses.

Documenting the life style of the last nomads for over ten years, director and ethnographer Hamid Sardar is this year, invited to follow Shukhert on his eternal journey. Between tribal rivalries, smuggling and gold searching, Hamid wonders what horse stealing means about Mongolia today. Language: English [90 minutes]

Nearly 90% of all life on Earth is unaccounted for, so how close are we to discovering all life on Earth before it disappears? By knowing as much as possible about the life around us, we will be able to unlock the secrets of medicine, engineering, design, economics, sustainability, and stewardship that will define the future of our species. In this episode of How Close Are We, we introduce you to researchers working hard to accelerate the discovery of different species, develop digital conservation tools, and maintain one of the world’s largest biological collections through “cryopreservation.” Language: english [11 minutes]

Beekeepers are losing 40-45% of their colonies each year, so scientists, farmers, and engineers are foraging for answers and creative solutions to save the bees. But how close are we? The last time you heard about bees in the news, it might have been connected with colony collapse disorder, or CCD. CCD was a series of strange, sudden disappearances of entire colonies--where workers left behind a queen, some young, and plenty of food. Learn more about the causes of CCD and the technology being created to monitor hives on this episode of How Close Are We? Language: english [8 minutes]

The film shows the harsh but also rich life of the horses of the Giara di Gesturi. In spring their life is rich with lots of water and enough grass and water plants to feed on. In summer the little temporary lakes, the Pauli, dry out and the horses start to fight for water and food. Some of them die, others survive but especially the fares are endangered as they have to nourish also the young foals and not only themselves. In order to identify the different families of horses and some individuals we introduced the character of Porfirio, a goat herder, who lives together with the horses on the Giara di Gesturi. Porfirio has lived on the flat top mountain for decades and before him his father and his grandfather. He is now the last one of the goat herders on the mountain. Porfirio gives names to the horses and describes their life without ever speaking to the camera. We can only hear his voice giving the audience the impression, that it is only his thoughts that we hear. We also used a female voice for the conventional narrator. On one hand the female narrators voice gives us hard facts about the horses and the life on the Giara, whereas Porfirio only gives us his personal view and observations about the horses lives. Together Porfirio and the narrator present a more personal view on the life of the Giara supported by facts on the harsh life in this rocky sanctuary. The horses and Porfirio represent the ancient descent of the Sardinian people as well as the horses. Together they arrived at the island and they are still there. Just like Porfirio has never been down to the sea the horses are roaming freely but are captives of the top of the Giara, They are connected by their habitat and their history. The approach of having a character on screen who’s personal thoughts we hear and a conventional narrator who presents the facts is new and helps to enrich the audience experience of the film.

A humpback whale is worth $2 million. The size of that number terrified even Ralph Chami, the economist who appraised the value of a whale. But can we even put a figure on these giant marine mammals? A group of economists certainly thinks so, and it’s all to do with how whales can help us to fight climate change. As it turns out, they sequester tonnes of Co2. We look in detail at how whales are contributing to saving the planet, and how we in turn need to start saving them. Language: english [9 minutes]

While the world is focused on handling the COVID-19 outbreak we should not forget that around this time extreme wildfires in the western U.S. are about to come into play.

In 2012 The Cambridge Declaration on Consciousness first publicly acknowledged consciousness in nonhuman animals. Its revelatory evidence inspired the story of I Am Lion. The film takes us on an emotional journey through human philosophy, history and perception, as a young lioness with no lion role models to learn from, slowly gains the knowledge and understanding to navigate her way through captivity, a bond with a human, and experiences in the natural world to fulfil her own natural potential. A moving and inspiring story, which highlights our tragically flawed relationship with the non-human animals that share our world. Language: English [92 minutes]

Water is necessary for the survival of all living things on the Earth’s surface. Around our planet, it appears in many forms, liquid, gas or solid. Almost 70% of the freshwater on our planet is held within glaciers and ice-sheets. We take water for granted, even though it is something we all depend on. Our future, amongst other challenges, depends on the capability of preserving the ice. Simply as we cannot live without the air, many species cannot live without ice. The ice is vital.

Iceland’s extreme landscapes may be challenging for those that live here, but they are awe-inspiring and breathtaking. The icy waters of the Silfra rift, an underwater canyon, are known for having “the clearest water in the world” with a visibility of over 100 metres. At the bottom of lakes and rivers, small sand volcanoes belch and bubble, spewing out hot water that ripples through the sand, creating an ever-changing landscape of craters. And beneath raging waterfalls, Arctic char gather in swarms. [30 minutes]

Dive into the fantastic world of the honey bee in this magical interactive experience. Fly with the swarm to discover their secret lives and global importance. Bella is three weeks old and is an essential member of a thriving 50,000-strong colony of bees. Having spent all her life working inside the hive, she’s now going outside for the first time, promoted to forage for nectar. Join Bella as she explores the hive and help her on her first mission. Shot in France, this experience was developed to introduce schoolchildren to the intricate and ordered world of bees. Language: English, French [13 minutes]

Into America’s Wild is a visually stunning cross-country adventure into the hidden wonders of the natural world. A non-stop ride via kayak, bike, train, hot air balloon, zipline and more, Into America’s Wild explores some of the most beautiful but little-known landscapes of North America, from the wilds of Alaska and the lush coastline of Oregon to the ancient canyons of the Southwest and the rolling hills of the Appalachian Trail. Setting out on this journey are three trailblazers - pioneering Native American astronaut John Herrington, Alaskan pilot and youth advocate Ariel Tweto, and record-breaking long-distance hiker Jennifer Pharr Davis - who share a passion for connecting people to experiences in the wild. As they wind their way through the scenic byways, ancient homelands, secret gems and hidden trails of America, viewers will discover the special human connection we all share with the natural world. Language: English [40 minutes]

Many of the ecosystems in Alabama and throughout the southeast evolved with fire. Human ignited “prescribed fire”, also known as controlled burns, are an essential technique to mimic this natural process to maintain and restore critical habitats. With an ever growing population and extensive efforts to restore large areas of native habitats such as longleaf pine, partnerships are critical to provide the capacity necessary to implement fire on the scale needed to accomplish these objectives. Language: english [20 minutes]

Into the Himalayas is an episode of a 3 part cinematic 360 VR series exploring a corner of the longest mountain chain in the world , it’s wildlife and the people that make it their home.

In this series, Niall travels the world to explore stories of a changing planet, and increasing human-wildlife conflict. Growing up to 19 ft long, packing more venom than any other, the King Cobra is the longest venomous snake in the world. Feared by many over the centuries, some believe it has enough venom to kill 20 men or an elephant. Yet, it’s reputation as a killer of people, may be unfounded. Wildlife Biologist and National Park Conservation Director, Dr. Niall McCann travels to Southern India to meet Cobra legend Romulus Whitaker to learn more. Niall discovers that up to 50,000 people a year die of snake bite in India. These are mostly from common Indian Cobras and Russell’s vipers. Romulus is on a mission to reduce snake bites here. Niall learns fatalities are likely due to increasing populations: more people are living in or close to forests, snakes call home. Seeking answers about the true nature of the King Cobra, and the snake-bite reduction program, Niall collects snakes with the Irula Indians (who once sold snake skins) to create life-saving anti-venom. In addition, he takes part in one of the only King Cobra (embedded) transmitter programs in the world: to learn more about its behavior and habitat. What he discovers is a seemingly sentient reptile, one with amazing vision, that stops and looks both ways at road crossings... rarely bites people and may in fact be a great help in reducing overall snake bite fatalities. The film captures some unique King Cobra hunting encounters, rarely if ever seen on film.

In Rondônia, theft of wood, land grabbing in protected areas and threats to indigenous leaderships are commonplace. The Uru-Eu-Wau-Wau indigenous territory is in a constant attack by invaders. With the arrival of the government of Jair Bolsonaro, the interests for the diminution of the land of the Indians became evident. In this documentary, villagers from the Uru-EuWau-Wau villages show the most recent outbreaks of invasion. Rural landowners accused of grilagem claim they have the support of a government agency to seek new land. The defenders of the Indians indicate that there is an orchestrated action to reduce the territory traditionally occupied by the Uru-Eu-Wau-Wau.

The film transports the viewer to the magical world of polar night in northern Scandinavia. In winter, the sun disappears for a long time north of the Arctic Circle, and darkness and cold dominate the landscape. But nature copes with the conditions astonishingly well. The plants and animals that survive here do so with a wide range of abilities that allow them to adapt to the extreme conditions. And when the northern lights dance across the dark skies, the polar night unfolds its unique enchantment. Language: english [52 minutes]

The Mississippi River Delta is essential to the U.S. economy. It allows the passage of goods worldwide, and it’s home to a $2.4 billion fishing industry. It’s also rapidly disappearing; every 100 minutes, wetland the size of a football field is lost to open water, presenting a huge environmental threat to America and to the coastal residents who call the area home. Follow the stories of individuals who are experiencing this calamity firsthand and see how they’re fighting to keep their cultures, livelihoods, and homes from washing away. Language: English [35 minutes]

Dr. Alex Kolker is the face of the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium, better known as LUMCON, one of the premier research institutes working to understand the mechanisms and impacts of coastal land loss. He has spent the last decade studying subsidence and sea level rise in effort to understand whether or not restoration will be sufficient to stem the loss of land. In this episode, Dr. Kolker will walk us through the current restoration projects and whether or not they are having the desired impact, he will show us how New Orleans is sinking and the state has a plan to save the coast. To follow Alex and his journey to understand coastal loss please visit @alex.kolker on Instagram. Language: english [11 minutes]

Ben Depp, a landscape photographer, has set out to chronicle the wetlands in a series of high-art aerial photographs that he captures with the help of his 21-foot paragliding wing and 200HP motor driven propeller that he straps to his back. From above he has become acutely aware of the vast network of pipeline canals which are reportedly responsible for up to 30% of the land loss. In this episode we take a trip to the barrier islands where Ben flies his glider and observes the recent restoration that the state has put into rebuilding the land in this area.

The Louisiana wetlands are the bread basket of the United States as far as shellfish is concerned. But the rich bounty that the delta produced for as long as anyone can remember is seemingly doomed whether we act or not. As saltwater pushes in from the ocean the ecosystem is threatened from mother nature, but the proposed restoration solutions are dreaded by the fisherman who fear too much freshwater will also destroy the habitat as they know it. Gleason, both a shrimper and oysterman, feels like there’s no good answer. He is, however, preparing to adapt to a changing future. He is optimistic. Language: english [12 minutes]

Kasha Clay is worried for her tribe. They have a hard enough time maintaining Houma tribal culture as is. Now with even more migration she sees the likelihood of it all falling away. Committed to seeing her tribes culture survive, she started working with the National Academy of Sciences to record oral histories of her community. In this episode we meet a few of the tribe’s elders as they share memories of their coastal communities, some of which are no longer there due to land loss. Kasha has a message for greater Louisiana -- you too are at risk for losing culture and that protection of the land is vital to maintain a much loved way of life. Language: english [11 minutes]

Albertine Kimble, rugged and quirky, is the best duck hunter in the parish. As the former coastal plan manager for the Parish she knows Plaquemines wetlands better than almost anyone. Through her eyes, this episode explains how human engineering prevented the Mississippi River from flowing its natural course, and how it deprives the wetlands of vital nutrients and sediment. As Albertine take us to her favorite hunting spots, she shares with us how the dying marsh is disrupting the Mississippi Flyway, something she has witnessed through the intimate familiarity she has with over 40 years of avid hunting.

But with threats like habitat destruction, climate change, and species extinction, we are living on a planet that is increasingly out of balance. The planet’s wild places are disappearing at an unprecedented rate. In less than 50 years, we’ve lost 60 percent of wildlife populations. In the last century, 90 percent of large ocean fish have disappeared. Species of plants, animals, and insects are going extinct more than 1,000 times faster than ever before. The good news? In protected areas, life comes back. Already, 15 percent of our land and 7 percent of our ocean are part of officially protected areas. But it’s not enough. That’s why the National Geographic Society has launched Last Wild Places, a decade-long initiative to help protect the places that sustain life on Earth. We envision a world where intact large wilderness areas contain the bulk of biodiversity on our planet, are resilient to--and help us mitigate--climate change, and continue providing the goods and services that are essential for humanity’s survival. Our target is ambitious but based on the best science: to protect at least 30 percent of the planet by 2030. Language: english [49 minutes]

Nakoda tribe member Tuffy Helgeson remembers the stories his ancestors told of the Northern Great Plains of Montana - of vast grasslands and roaming buffalo herds. Through the work of the American Prairie Reserve, whose goal is to create a seamless 3.5 million acre grassland ecosystem, he is seeing the restoration of that land, and the return of the buffalo. Language: english [13 minutes]

Iber· National Park in northeastern Argentina is part of one of the largest wetlands in South America, but much of its wildlife went extinct in the 20th century due to widespread hunting and habitat loss. Now, a dedicated team of conservationists is working hand in hand with local communities to reintroduce many of the keystone species that were lost, while also helping to preserve the region’s unique cultural heritage.

In the tiny Arctic town of Ny-≈lesund, where polar bears outnumber people, winter means three months without sunlight. The unending darkness is ideal for those who seek a strange breed of northern lights, normally obscured by daylight. When these unusual auroras shine, Earth’s atmosphere leaks into space. Scientists traveled to Ny-≈lesund to launch rockets through these auroras and witness oxygen particles right in the middle of their escape. Piercing these fleeting auroras, some 300 miles high, would require strategy, patience -- and a fair bit of luck. This is their story. Language: english [8 minutes]

BEST DIGITAL NARRATIVE AT SHEFFIELD DOC/FEST 2019 “Le Lac” is a dreamscape where liquid gives way to dust. The oasis of the Sahel, Lake Chad, is not who she used to be. Ninety percent of her water is gone, leaving her feeling depleted, wary, scared and insecure. Climate change has made the millions of people who depend on her vulnerable, and induced the threat of Boko Haram insurgency. In this immersive documentary, step into the lives of Mahamat, a once-wealthy pastoralist, and Nassuri, a refugee turnedfisherman, as the lake herself hopes for their survival amidst her scattered ponds.

Although tiny, trap-jaw ants (Odontomachus sp.) are awe-inspiring in their own right. With jaws that open a full 180 degrees and span a distance significantly wider than their heads, the ants can strike at the breathtaking speed of 225 kilometers (140 miles) per hour and with a force 300 times the insects’ own weight. In addition to the more conventional functions that jaws perform in other animals, trap-jaw ants employ theirs in a truly novel way: locomotion. Now, researchers are hoping to uncover the physics behind these propulsive ants in order to build cutting-edge microrobots. Language: English [8 minutes]

Over the last 1.500 years, big predators have disappeared from Trinidad. Ocelots and tayras now top the food chain. Its other inhabitants have adjusted, like Trinidad’s capuchin monkeys, cracking snail shells. Oilbirds nest in dark caves, using echolocation. On Tobago fewer predators mean bird paradise. Frigate birds harass tropic birds to steal their haul of fish. And in the depth of night, giant leatherback turtles dig their nests, filmed with new light-sensitive cameras turning night into day. Language: english [52 minutes]

The story of an American crocodile washed up on Cuba’s shores reveals the challenges of island life. Survival here requires adaptation: Over time, it has produced new species and preserved others; including some so secretive they’re rarely seen, like the bizarre venomous solenodon. It’s even possible to find an animal in the process of evolving into something new, including an isolated population of American crocodiles caught in the confines of Hispaniola’s unique salt lake, Lago Enriquillo.

Since the 1960’s, our knowledge of orcas and in particular their extraordinary powers of communication has steadily evolved. This species, once feared as “killers of the deep” are now seen as intelligent, emotional, and social in ways that are remarkably like humans. Listening to Orcas explores the groundbreaking research that lies behind these shifts in perception and documents the key roles and contributions of a remarkable group of scientists, most of whom live and work on Canada’s West Coast, and who have made the Pacific orca the focus of their life’s work. Language: english [44 minutes]

Living With Predators is a 3-part series that documents the stories of the real MVPs of Big Cat conservation in India - tribal communities. Through each episode, National Geographic Explorer and wildlife presenter Malaika Vaz travels across her country documenting the stories of the ex-poachers, the tribal communities and the forest guards that make the conservation of Asiatic Lions, Leopards and Tigers possible in India. This presenter-based series aims to inspire an understanding that the neighbours of Big Cats are their biggest advocates for protection, and with them onboard - everyone wins. This is episode #2 - focused on Asiatic Lion conservation. Language: English [22 minutes]

Lost Cities is an interactive film that reveals the incredible hidden world of corals. With its unique layout, nonlinear narrative, and evocative design, Lost Cities imparts crucial information about the crisis corals face globally while pushing the boundaries of the traditional nature documentary. The experience is anchored by an expressive soundscape and narration by the late Dr. Ruth Gates, a visionary coral biologist. Contextual “popups” enrich stories with supplemental information for curious viewers. By exploring what lies beneath the surface, Lost Cities brings to light the surprising way the lives of corals are interwoven with our own. Language: english [20 minutes]

This is Luna’s story. Born into the Planets family, Luna is one of the last few remaining survivors of a once prosperous 30+ strong elephant herd. At just nine years old, she lost most of her family including her mother Neptune to poaching. Alone in a hostile world, she was fitted with a tracking collar by Save the Elephants to study and protect her. This remarkable film shows how Luna overcame adversity and how tracking her has deepened our understanding of the impacts of poaching on elephant society.

Mountain Adventure: Out of Bounds

Mt. Suswa: Life in a Volcano

Mountains - they fill our rivers, sway the weather, and provide sanctuary to incredibly diverse wildlife. They are as beautiful as they are dangerous - and for a brave few, they are the source of incredible adventure. Follow Olympian Torah Bright as she journeys through the world’s longest chain of mountain ranges extending from Antarctica all the way to Alaska. Along the journey, Torah will meet with world-class snow athletes, scientists, and environmentalists, to uncover a deeper understanding of our mountain ecosystems. Come along, and discover the role mountains play in our daily lives, while witnessing the most spectacular snowboard action! Language: english [43 minutes]

Animal Behavior Long-Form , Ecosystem Long-Form, Science in Nature Long-Form, Audioscape, Cinematography, Editing, Original Music Score, Writing Volcanoes are temperamental, dangerous and deadly. Not the ideal place for wildlife. But Mt. Suswa in Kenya is different: it hosts a multitude of life both above and below its surface. Underground tunnels were formed thousands of years ago by rivers of lava whose outer layers solidified while the core continued to flow. One of these caverns is the “Baboon Parliament” as the local Masai named it. Remarkably, Suswa is the only known place where olive baboons roost in caves - which gives us a glimpse over the reasons that drove hominids to find shelter into caves in prehistoric times.

Murder At Sea

MY 25: The Ocean Between Us

My Octopus Teacher

20-0172 Conservation Short-Form

20-0173 Emerging Filmmaker

20-0174

“MURDER AT SEA” True crime meets / ocean environmental. The film opens with a multiple murder mystery; the crime scene is the dazzling Western Central Pacific, where island nations dominate the seascape. Yet their fish stocks, their most valuable resource, are being strip- mined by voracious distant-water fishing fleets. The murder victims are marine observers, caught in the cross-fire of a global fish war. We follow the murder investigation to learn that their murders warn of a greater threat, a global food supply in jeopardy, increased refugees, fisheries collapse and a prophecy of an empty ocean. “MURDER AT SEA” the thriller will expose the true cost of unchecked industrial fishing worldwide, the human lives sacrificed, the money made, the mounting environmental damage and the international security threats. “MURDER AT SEA” will change the way we think about the fish we eat and the way we think about our roles in securing the future of our oceans. For in the end, we all need to be observers. Language: English [10 minutes]

By age 6, I had already decided I was going to be a Marine Biologist but I never imagined that by the time I graduated I would be fighting to save the last of a species and documenting the end of an era. Switching between memories and reality ‘My 25: The Ocean Between Us’ tells an intimate story of how our oceans have changed in just my lifetime. From traditional fishing practices to state of the art wet labs and coral restoration we demonstrate how there is still time to change the fate of our oceans. Language: english [15 minutes]

Animal Behavior Long-Form , Ecosystem Long-Form, People & Nature LongForm, Science in Nature Long-Form, Audioscape, Cinematography, Editing, Original Music Score, Feature After years of swimming every day in the freezing ocean at the tip of Africa, Craig Foster meets an unlikely teacher: a young octopus who displays remarkable curiosity. Visiting her den and tracking her movements for months on end he eventually wins the animal’s trust and they develop a never-before-seen bond between human and wild animal. As the little octopus shares the secrets of her world, Craig undertakes an incredible mental and physical transformation. His body becomes immune to the cold of the deep and each breath lasts minutes on end. The octopus shows him things that have never been recorded by science or on film - how she uses tools to defend herself against a shark attack and “walks”, bipedally, tripedaly, and quadrupedally to navigate the seafloor. She even displays what may be the first recorded case of play behavior in wild cephalopods and ultimately redefines Craig’s understanding of the creatures we share our world with.

Mystery of the Buffalo Boom

20-0183 Animal Behavior Long-Form

When ecologist Tony Sinclair arrived in the Serengeti in the 1960s, he was faced with a mystery: why were buffalo and wildebeest populations increasing so rapidly? In this video, Sinclair takes us through the steps of how he solved this mystery, which turned out to involve an infectious disease and a vaccination program in cattle. Language: english [7 minutes]

For the residents of Niue- a small island nation in the South Pacific, their knowledge of the sea is critical to their livelihoods and to the protection of the island’s unique marine ecosystem. However, due to the island’s geographic isolation, few scientific surveys have taken place in the surrounding waters. In 2016, the Pristine Seas team, led by National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Enric Sala, was invited by the government of Niue and local NGO Tofia Niue to help the island community survey and document its unique underwater environment in an effort to ensure the long-term sustainable use of its resources. Working alongside Niuean scientists, they conducted 236 dives, made 11 deep-water camera deployments (to a maximum depth of 2,500 meters), and surveyed more than 300 fish species, 60 algae species, and 121 coral species. Their dives at Beveridge Reef- lying 120 miles southeast of the mainland- revealed huge numbers of sharks, including the first-ever sighting of Gal·pagos sharks at the reef. Language: english [30 minutes]

How do you study an animal you can’t even get close to? Camera traps and drones are revolutionizing wildlife biology by recording the secret lives of animals-from whales and tigers to elusive giant armadillos--all without disturbing them. Language: English [53 minutes]

For almost half a century, oil companies Occidental Petroleum (1971-2000) and subsequently Pluspetrol (2000-2015) have devastated the forests and rivers of the northern Peruvian Amazon. Their pipelines have collapsed and degraded, leaking oil and heavy metals into the land at over 1,963 contamination sites. Indigenous Quechua, Achuar, and Kichwa communities have suffered extreme environmental, health, cultural, social, and economic impacts as a result. In 2020, indigenous leaders have taken their case to the Netherlands, where Pluspetrol transferred its headquarters in 2000, bringing a complaint to the OECD. Language: Spanish [7 minutes]

Animal Behavior Long-Form , Ecosystem Long-Form, Feature, Cinematography, Audioscape, Editing, Original Music Score, Writing Drawing on Dante’s “Divine Comedy”, the story is told as a journey from Purgatory into Paradise, a quest for truth, for the soul of this river, the Okavango in Botswana, seeing those who use her, as well as those who are victim to the changes she brings, used by her. Floods rise up and transport trillions of liters of water, and yet, each droplet makes a difference. There are characters like Feeketsa, a wounded lioness that makes it against all odds and becomes a kind of talisman for the tale, a symbol of hope through hardship. The film is like looking through windows into stories and then moving on, until we reveal that each story binds us to the next, and to the river herself. It is also a symbol of hope against a backdrop of climate change that threatens every pristine landscape in the world.

Although not generally known for its environmentalism, Las Vegas, thirstiest city in the driest state in the U.S., has been leveraging that reputation. It has transformed into a hub for new and innovative water technology. Everything is watched, measured and checked. Water is recycled and returned to the source. Every drop is monitored acoustically to detect leaks within 6500 miles of pipes. The drought the water bosses were contemplating in 2001 is dragging into its 19th year. It’s imperative now more than ever to exercise care for our natural resources, as they are so quickly depleting. We have no choice. Language: English [55 minutes]

A docu-soap following the hilarious antics, triumphs and tragedies of a gang of orphan orangutans as they progress through a unique forest school system. They don’t know it yet, but these curious youngsters are destined for great things if they graduate from this school with a difference... the chance to live free in the wild. Along the way they endure all the embarrassments, tears, tantrums and teenage crushes that come with growing up orangutan. Language: English [50 minutes]

Indigenous territories in the Amazon are targeted for illegal extractive activities such as gold mining and deforestation and without clear land titles their ability to protect their forest homes remains legally precarious. Protecting the rights of indigenous peoples is a climate solution that will benefit communities, the Amazon itself and all of humanity. In the community of Boca Parimanu, the Amahuaca people tread this difficult balance. The most biodiverse region in the Peruvian Amazon, Madre de Dios is also the most affected by illegal mining, causing over 60 000 hectares of forest to be deforested. Language: Spanish [9 minutes]

He must overcome his fears of drowning and... breathe, to realize his dream of diving deep into the oceans vastness. Through his first sensory overloaded experiences, Loyiso makes profound observations of how humans can learn from the oceans interconnected ecosystems and way of life. Whilst he breathes the oceans calm and experiences first-hand the threat to our oceans biodiversity and the air we breathe, he feels compelled to amplify his responsibility as a marine scientist. Language: English and isiXhosa [10 minutes]

Portugal was once a great power that linked the Old and New Worlds - and this history is reflected in the country¥s landscapes and wildlife. Wild horses small enough to fit on the cramped ocean-going ships were tamed in the northern mountains and exported to gold-greedy Conquistadores. Now Portugal¥s sea horses are threatened by modern global trade: illegal fishing to supply far-eastern exotic medicines. The 20th Century dictator Salazar imported quickgrowing eucalyptus trees from Australia to revive the timber industry. But the highly inflammable eucalyptus cause devastating forest fires, which Portugal¥s traditional cork oak forests - home of white storks - could survive unscathed. Like the most protected Mediterranean monk seals which attempt to rebuild their decimated population in the Atlantic off the coast of Madeira, while not far away, on the inhospitable Desertas Islands, the world’s largest wolf spider engages in cannibalism. Almost like the legendary Conquistadores massive flocks of vultures migrate to warmer parts of the World to return after a while. In this country the ancient elements: Water, Fire, Earth and Air - still rule.

A team of international geo-scientists investigate the Arctic landscape of Lofoten Islands in Norway, examining causes of earthquakes originating deep below earth’s surface; through the microscopic view of the world to an understanding of deep time. In an exceptionally well-preserved field site, this natural laboratory provides a rare ‘window’ into these exposed rocks that were once deep below the surface of the earth and the ocean. The rocks formed more than 2 billion years ago, almost half the age of planet Earth. After millions of years of erosion, they now show visible traces of ancient earthquakes as ‘scars’, so-called Pseudotachylytes. Language: english [55 minutes]

Part two is called “Rebirth” - and it starts with a strange cat wandering the hilltops. At least she seems strange, but she’s no stranger to the area from the way she moves around, swimming the river, crossing places that only a cat with experience could know. She is young, vibrant, a little clumsy for a puma, and her immediate hunting tactics leave a lot to be desired. She fails spectacularly. But she also seems to have knowledge of where the guanacos go to breed and fight and give birth. She is the beautiful Casadora, who somehow survived a summer all alone. And while her siblings vanished and never showed up again, she made it back to her mother Solitaria’s valley. Language: english [50 minutes]

Biologist explorer, Dan O’Neill travels to the Philippines to meet the pioneering conservationists behind the Philippine Eagle Foundation, and follow an incredible young Philippine eagle’s return to the wild who was rescued from the ocean.

As the world’s largest and most endangered eagle, the national bird of the Philippines, and the apex predator of their homeland, conservation of these raptors is vitally important.

The first episode follows the course of the Volga from its source in the North to where it starts to be the dominant force in the European part of Russia. But one single source is not enough to explain its epic size. In addition to the spring of the Volga in the Valdai hills, it is the snow masses of the Ural Mountains and the groundwater of the Russian Taiga that make this mighty river what it is.

In the last 30 years, we have lost half of the planet’s coral. Scientists predict in another 30 years the planet will lose nearly all of the world’s coral. But there is a glimmer of hope: so-called ‘super corals’. They exist in small numbers in very unusual places. The Red Sea and the urban corals of Miami are examples. Three scientists are on the forefront of this research: Ruth Gates from the USA, Madeleine Van Oppen in Australia, and Julia Baum from Canada. Their work offers hope that our coral reefs can be rescued and protected in a warming world. Language: english [52 minutes]

Despite their ancient appearance, reptiles are creatures full of surprises and sophistication. Much like dinosaurs, reptiles are hugely efficient hunters. They’re as vital to all the ecosystems they inhabit now as they have been since the beginning of time. Like the King of the River, weighing up to 1800 kilos; the crocodile’s extraordinary success is due to their ecological role as a great aquatic predator: simple, flawless and invincible. ‘REPTILES’ is a thrilling closeup in magnificent 4K/UHD of the predators lurking in the shadows: the descendants of dinosaurs.

“Rise of the Mammals” followed the story of a major fossil discovery for three years starting just days after the initial mind-blowing find in Colorado. These fossils captured an unprecedented and unbroken record of plants, animals, and precise dates spanning the first million years after the asteroid impact that wiped out the great dinosaurs. The fossils shed new light on an immensely consequential period in the history of life, when new ecosystems took shape and surviving mammals--including our distant ancestors--rose up to seize the planet.

Less than six years ago, the second of two dams on the Elwha River, on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula, was taken out to provide access for fish to the upper river located in the Olympic National Park. Since then, we have witnessed a remarkable transformation of the river - and of the wildlife that depend on it. Before the dams were installed in the early 1900s, the Elwha produced consistent and robust runs of salmon and steelhead and was a productive fishery. Afterwards, these runs dwindled almost to nothing. In fact, the river’s summer run of steelhead was almost extirpated. But taking out the dams paid immediate dividends for salmon and steelhead, which are now being found throughout the watershed. And summer steelhead, in particular, have staged an amazing comeback. Like the Phoenix rising from the ashes, summer steelhead have repopulated the Elwha in numbers unthinkable a few years ago. This film, from renowned filmmaker Shane Anderson, documents the return of summer steelhead to the Elwha, some of the key players who are studying the recovery of salmon and steelhead in this river, and what the Elwha’s recovery can tell us about large-scale river restoration projects in other places.

An unlikely trio are lured to a remote river in the wilderness of the Russian Far East in search of a mythical 150-pound trout. The adventurers -- a Russian oligarch, an American fly fisherman, and a Russian scientist -- must join forces to unlock the river’s secrets in order to save it. Language: English [15 minutes]

Rockabill is a tiny island off the Dublin coast. No bigger than a football pitch, this extraordinary place is home to thousands of breeding seabirds. Most of the European population of the rare Roseate Tern breed on Rockabill thanks to a conservation project that began here 30 years ago. Every summer two wardens live on Rockabill to monitor and protect these special seabirds. The wardens have replaced the lighthouse keepers of old as the only human residents on this isolated island. This documentary, written by Andrew Power, follows his experience with the thousands of seabirds that make this island unique. Language: english [53 minutes]

Fifty years ago, a large island in Lake Victoria was cleared of inhabitants by the Tanzanian government and turned into an African Ark. Endangered species (elephants, giraffe and rhino) were ferried over to this new National Park from across Africa. Then a controversial German Zoologist/filmmaker got involved, re-habituating -- he called it “freeing” -- 17 unrelated chimpanzees from zoos and circuses across Europe to the island. Now, remarkably, they are the only growing colony of wild chimpanzees in Africa, but their future and that of this park is uncertain because of one small - but important -- flaw in the plan.

Most people are not aware of the daily struggle endangered species endure to survive. We wanted to find a way to create a connection between runners and endangered species. In October of 2019, adidas Runtastic, Internet of Elephants, The Snow Leopard Trust and UNEP collaborated to create “Run Wild”, a two week digital campaign to make runners worldwide compete with a wild snow leopard from Mongolia. The result: Around 499,000 runners worldwide accepted this challenge, more than 200,00 finished the challenge, and more than 20,000 managed to successfully outrun Uuliin by running more than 50 km in just 12 days! Language: english [2 minutes]

Sanctuary explores the healing powers of wild places and rivers and the need to create more sanctuaries on public lands. Set against the backdrop of the North Umpqua’s most famous tributary, Steamboat Creek, which was recently designated as the Frank and Jeanne Moore Wild Steelhead Sanctuary, filmmaker Shane Anderson documents how these famed waters impacted Soul River, a group of veterans and urban youth as they learn about steelhead research by Pacific Rivers and meet conservation heroes Frank and Jeanne.

Antarctica, the inhospitable white continent we know today, was long ago a land covered with lush subtropical forests, full of palm trees, ferns and conifers among which majestic dinosaurs walked at the beginning of the Jurassic period. Later on, as the Passage of Drake took form, the circumpolar current appeared, and still the most important ocean current on our Planet. This film is dedicated to the 38 persons who perished aboard the Chilean Air Force¥s Hercules C-130 aircraft into the Drake Passage on Decermber of 2019. Our Thoughts are with them and their families. Language: english [12 minutes]

A looming disaster in one of the most spectacular environments on Earth sparks a rescue mission unlike any other in SEA OF SHADOWS, a riveting new documentary with the intensity of a Hollywood thriller from National Geographic Documentary Films and winner of the Sundance audience award. When Mexican drug cartels and Chinese traffickers join forces to poach the rare totoaba fish in the Sea of Cortez, their deadly methods threaten to destroy virtually all marine life in the region, including the most elusive and endangered whale species on Earth, the vaquita porpoise. SEA OF SHADOWS follows a team of dedicated scientists, high-tech conservationists, investigative journalists and courageous undercover agents as well as the Mexican Navy as they put their lives on the line to save the last remaining vaquitas and bring the vicious international crime syndicate to justice. Language: English [105 minutes]

When one part of the planet awakens from its wintery slumber, and the other slows down after a busy summer, nature gets ready for change! Language: english [49 minutes]

20-0243 Ecosystem Long-Form

Indian Summer in Canada; Momijigari in Japan; and Europe’s Golden October days - all splashes of beauty in landscapes on the cusp of change. Language: english [50 minutes]

The contours of the Mediterranean have changed during the course of its history. Near Gibraltar, Africa was once connected to the European continent. When the land bridge at Gibraltar collapsed, the Mediterranean basin filled up again. The Suez Canal is today connected to the Red Sea. This route enables animals to reach the Mediterranean, where they cause problems. Language: english [50 minutes]

Rugged rocks, blue sea and idyllic, sandy beaches - this is the Mediterranean as we know it. But this impression is deceptive: the Mediterranean is under constant change. The continents are moving towards one another. Animals, that have to survive under such extreme conditions, must find a way to escape the dangers. Between deserts and volcanoes, the challenges for the animals are enormous. Language: english [50 minutes]

When a lone wolf is a small uninhabited archipelago just off the coast of the city of Victoria, British Columbia, local resident and renowned wildlife photographer Cheryl Alexander goes in for a closer look. What follows is a seven-year relationship that pushes the boundaries of his world--and ours. Takaya: Lone Wolf recounts the inspirational story of one animal’s resilience, adaptation, and survival as he takes on the odds. Through Cheryl’s extraordinary connection and commitment, this special documentary reveals that humans can in fact coexist with apex carnivores that are often perceived as a lethal threat. Amid widespread rumours and theories, Cheryl uncovers hidden clues and never-beforeseen footage that detail where Takaya came from, how he got to the island, and how he’s adapted to his new landscape. And, meeting with leading experts to help decipher his remarkable behaviour, she is determined to expose the deeper lessons that this majestic hunter has to teach us all.

Take Action for the Tongass (Campaign) | Breathe, The Wildest Hunt, The Alaska You Come to See 20-0262 Impact Campaign At 17 million acres, the Tongass is not only America’s largest national forest, it’s the largest intact temperate rainforest in the world. It stores and absorbs vast amounts more carbon than any other forest in the United States. Over the protests of Alaskans, Americans, and sovereign indigenous governments, the Trump Administration plans to strip protections for more than 9 million acres of the forest in order to open the land up for roads, clearcut old growth logging, and industrialization. This would plunge our world further into a climate emergency. An estimated 1.5 million people each year visit Alaska’s Inside Passage to see brown bears and black bears, to fish for salmon, to kayak glacial seas, and to immerse themselves in the Tongass National Forest -- the largest national forest in the United States. Tourism is the area’s biggest industry, employing more than 10,000 people and driving more than a billion dollars in economic impact each year. That’s all possible because the Tongass is the largest intact temperate rainforest in the world, home to some of the world’s last remaining stands of ancient Sitka spruce, hemlock, and cedar trees. But now the U.S. Forest Service is planning to strip protections for more than nine million acres of the forest, opening up land to clear-cut old growth logging and industrial development. This threat to the Tongass and its in habitants is also a threat to the visitor industry in SE Alaska, the area’s biggest economic driver, which relies on these wild places.

Kea, native mountain-dwelling parrots of New Zealand, are known for their mischievous and playful behavior. But they are far more than meets the eye. Research into their minds has proven them to be amazing problem-solvers. What makes them so intelligent? Language: english [13 minutes]

This film is about one of the most bio-diverse community reserves in the world. It is the story of how the Bugun community and the Forest Department comes together to manage it. The forest patrolling team of SBVCR are the youth from the Bugun community from Singchung. The film has been made by Shaleena, who is also a member of the forest patrolling team. Language: english [15 minutes]

Over the past century, nearly all of Ethiopia’s native forests have been cleared for farming and grazing. Now it is up to the Orthodox Churches--who for centuries have safeguarded pockets of primary forest that grow around them-to preserve Ethiopia’s quickly shrinking biodiversity and teach people how to live with forests.

20-0270 People & Nature Long-Form

Explorers of the deepest depths, liberating themselves from time and challenging the limits of the human body. Four divers are preparing themselves to embark on a new experience: to live in a 5m2 pressurized chamber for 28 days, in order to explore at 100m deep without boundaries and reveal the lush and unknown depths of the Mediterranean Sea. Language: French subtitled in English [90 minutes]

What can black holes teach us about the boundaries of knowledge? These holes in spacetime are the darkest objects and the brightest--the simplest and the most complex. With unprecedented access, THE EDGE OF ALL WE KNOW follows two powerhouse collaborations. Stephen Hawking anchors one, striving to show that black holes do not annihilate the past. Another group, working in the world’s highest altitude observatories, creates an earth-sized telescope to capture the first-ever image of a black hole. Interwoven with other dimensions of exploring black holes, these stories bring us to the pinnacle of humanity’s quest to understand the universe. Language: english [98 minutes]

The Edge of Existence is a long-format documentary, set in the Western Corridor of the Serengeti, that sets out to uncover and document the untold story of human-wildlife conflict in Africa. Human-wildlife conflict is a global issue that has reached crisis levels, threatening the survival of both humans and wild animals. There are communities living alongside wildlife in some of the last remaining wilderness areas on earth. These wilderness areas have started disappearing because of expanding human development, deforestation, and depletion of natural resources, which has left humans and wildlife living in closer proximity than ever before. The conflict arises as a result of the competition for limited space and resources between communities and wildlife. The situation is dire, and if it is not addressed urgently, it will have a catastrophic effect on the environment and on communities that live alongside wild animals daily. The Edge of Existence aims to tell the story of key characters on the ground in the Serengeti who face daily challenges as they struggle to coexist with Africa’s wildlife. We show it from their eyes and hear their point of view on this topic. Language: english [90 minutes]

The Genetics of Tusklessness in Elephants

20-0273 Micro-Movie

Experience the magic of Rwanda’s mountain gorillas! The Ellen Fund, Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund & Rwanda Development Board are helping these endangered animals. This once-in-alifetime, up-close 360° VR short was commissioned by The Ellen Fund in partnership with the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, South-African based Habitat XR, and the Rwanda Development Board to bring mountain gorillas to life for many more than are able to witness them physically in the wild. Language: english [6 minutes]

The Flying Gold of Arabuko is the living story of ‘the butterfly effect’. It follows the practise of butterfly catchers and famers in Kenya and how it has become an unlikely saviour of the last and largest indigenous forest of the East African Coast. It is told through the perspective of an ex-illegal logger and poacher, Charo Ngumbao. Like many others in the area, he has left his past exploitative livelihood behind and discovered the benefits of forest conservation through sustainably farming butterflies to supply tropical butterfly houses around the world. Language: English [10 minutes]

Normally, more than 90% of female African elephants have tusks. But in places that have a history of poaching and trophy hunting, like in Gorongosa National Park, tuskless females are surprisingly common. To better understand how the tuskless trait is evolving under selection from poaching, we wanted to find out which genes are responsible for tusk development. But elephants have thousands of genes? So how can we find the right ones? Language: english [5 minutes]

The Golden Lion Tamarin becomes a beacon of hope for the Atlantic Forest habitat in Brazil, as conservationists continue a more than 30-year effort to save the species by connecting its fragmented habitat with a wildlife bridge. It’s an ambitious reforestation effort that promises to benefit wildlife in the region and the local communities that are joining the effort. Language: English, Portuguese [8 minutes]

The Green Hub in northeast India engages and empowers youth across eight states, especially from indigenous communities, with a video fellowship program. Since 2014, the annual program has been training the youth to make films on the environment and indigenous communities with topics such as natural history, human-animal conflict, social change, and more. Many alumni are currently using their visual communication skills to aid conservation projects or highlight threats to the biodiverse region. The project provides livelihood opportunities that celebrate and guard natural resources, creates a visual archive through local voices, and facilitates social and cultural exchanges among participants.

Language: English [45 minutes]

Nearly 10,000 hidden tigers live in the United States. Yet, less than 4,000 tigers exist in the wild. A terrifying disparity. Filmed throughout India, Nepal, and sanctuaries across the US, The Hidden Tiger investigates the challenges on both the wild and captive frontlines: poaching and the black market trade of tiger parts, abuse as roadside photo cubs, and the horrific fact that America’s captive tiger plays a role in the possible extinction of her wild counterpart. The documentary features Carole and Howard Baskin, Valmik Thapar, Dr. John Goodrich, Steve Winter, Belinda Wright, and many other experts from around the world. Language: english [47 minutes]

The Honey Bee brain is being studied by researchers who hope that it might provide a unique window into how the human brain works. While the honey bee has only one million neurons, the human brain is exponentially complex with 80 billion neurons. The project focuses on honey bee intelligence which researchers hope can provide an informative comparative lens on the intelligence of other animals. One of the basic questions is: “What is intelligence?” How is intelligence defined across species? How do we account for complex learning, complex navigation, complex memory , complex assessment? The honey bee provides some fascinating answers that will even impact the future of machine learning and robotics. Language: english [13 minutes]

In the past, in Maasai culture, in order to become a Warrior young men had to kill a lion to prove their bravery. In response to the decrease in lion populations in the amboseli-tsavo ecosystem, 8 Maasai elders approached the Big Life team to find a way to eliminate lion hunting from the Maasai culture, while still honouring Maasai traditions, and so the Maasai Olympics was created. This incredible initiative is so much more than just a sporting event and has found a way to ensure the long term survival of lions in this area by working together with local communities.

20-0285 Animal Behavior Long-Form

“The Land of Azaba” is a closely observed film exploring the theme of ecological restoration, a worldwide movement to turn back the tide of mass extinction and restore planet earth to ecological balance. “The Land of Azaba” immerses the viewer in a magical world where humans and wildlife work together to restore the largest remaining tract of wild nature in western Europe. The survival of many rare and endangered species, including ancient oaks, insects, vultures, aurochs and horses, is at stake. Language: english [84 minutes]

For centuries, Inuit in the Arctic have lived on and around the frozen ocean. Now, as climate change is rapidly melting the sea ice between Canada and Greenland, the outside world sees unprecedented opportunity. Oil and gas deposits, faster shipping routes, tourism, and fishing all provide financial incentive to exploit the newly opened waters. But for more than 100,000 Inuit, an entire way of life is at stake. Development here threatens to upset the delicate balance between their communities, land, and wildlife. Divided by aggressive colonization and decades of hardship, Inuit in Canada and Greenland are once again coming together, fighting to protect what will remain of their world. The question is, will the world listen? Language: English [83 minutes]

Our seasons shape the cycle of life in dramatic ways. Spring, summer, autumn or winter - every season is unique, each presenting nature with new challenges. The constant change in living conditions demands extraordinary feats from animals and plants throughout the year. And the survival strategies of the squirrel, fox and many others could hardly be more fascinating. The film takes us on a breathtaking journey of discovery through indigenous nature: after the privations of winter, life explodes in spring, the heat of summer is followed by the harvest season of autumn. Extraordinary animal stories - some humorous, some dramatic, but always with an eye to the season’s special features - bring the magic of our seasons to life. Language: english [89 minutes]

This film documents a team of dedicated individuals fighting to protect Zimbabwe’s natural heritage, with a focus on rhinos. The Malilangwe Trust, not only inspired us, but made us realize that anti-poaching is not just about training and discipline, it’s also about forming bonds with those in your team. Rhino poaching has reached crisis levels in southern Africa and without this team this area would not be flourishing the way it currently is. We would continue to lose more rhinos in Zimbabwe. The training that these scouts undergo is intense. Not everyone makes it. Watch and learn more about this team, about the training, about protecting rhinos - “Its our legacy, our future” - a quote directly from the film. Language: English [12 minutes]

A quiet, little-known revolution is taking place in American environmental politics in a most surprising place--Nevada.

Reid used power in new ways to settle water wars with respect for Native Americans, protect endangered species and wilderness, and usher in a just transition to renewable energy.

The Next Generation is a short film that celebrates one of the most successful conservation campaigns in history: Save the Whales. Save the Whales was a campaign that was sparked by the very first Earth Day and inspired that generation’s eco-warriors. Now, a new wave of conservation is here. One that demands action. One that is built on hope and one that continues to go green but, at its core, will always be blue. Language: english [3 minutes]

The Octopus in My House

THE PLANETS - “LIFE BEYOND THE SUN SATURN”

The Read Centaur

20-0292 People & Nature Long-Form, Animal Behavior Long-Form , Editing, Writing

20-0293 Original Music Score

20-0294 Ecosystem Short-Form, Writing

A professor has an intriguing idea, what would he learn if he invited an octopus to live in his house? We see the octopus, called ‘Heidi’, unravel puzzles, recognize individual humans, and even watch TV with the family. We also see remarkable octopus behaviour from around the world. But most fascinating of all is seeing how Professor David Scheel and his daughter Laurel can develop an intimate relationship with an animal that has nine brains, three hearts and blue blood running through its veins. Language: english [59 minutes]

Professor Brian Cox reveals a new, ground breaking series we’ll be telling the story of the planets as never before. We wanted to create music that encouraged viewers to explore drama and documentary in THE PLANETS series. The foundation of the soundtrack is a modern orchestral score to compliment this epic insight into our star system. Our sonic interpretation for THE PLANETS is called Cosmic Dust - Kepler beeps, granular and modular analogue synthesizers composed of tiny shards of glass provide textural layers. Language: english [48 minutes]

Located in the very middle of the Australian mainland, the Red Centre must by the same logic be either the heart, or alternatively the belly button, of the Australian continent. Here, bowerbirds savage each other’s interior decorating, rock wallabies joust on cliff sides at testosterone’s express instruction, and eagles extort nutrition out of an ecosystem’s worth of disadvantaged prey species. This wildlife edu-comedy documentary examines the most ludicrous elements of a seemingly barren region, supporting a wealth of life. Language: english [11 minutes]

The Kabini Forest of South India is hot and dry--no place for a melanistic leopard. But Saya is different. He’s the first black panther to settle here and claim this territory as his own, but it won’t come easy. Between these trees lies an untold story, a story that defies the laws of natural selection. A story of astounding adaptability and success.†This is the story of Saya, the real Black Panther, and his unconventional rise to power. Language: english [43 minutes]

For more than half a century, people have altered the ecosystem in the Kelly Hayfields of Grand Teton National Park. Historically, food for cattle was grown in the fields. Now, park scientists aim to bring back native plants and animals by undertaking rigorous restoration work. The story of the Kelly Hayfields demonstrates that present-day actions cascade into the future, and we may never see the outcome. As values shift and generations of land stewards come and go, we must care about our environmental impacts for those people, plants, and animals who will live in the future.

Siberian tigers are the largest of all cats. In historic times, the tiger’s range was vast, covering much of Asia. Over the last century, they’ve experienced an almost total population crash, and at least 97% of those tigers have gone. Language: English [36 minutes]

The Secret of 1.5°C, Timber Building Solution to Save Planet from a Heat Dome. Buildings account for at least half the world’s carbon emissions. During the construction of a building, which includes the preparation and transportation of concrete and steel, carbon dioxide is emitted every instant energy is used. “If greenhouse gases are left unchecked, everything will be extinct by the end of this century.” While it may seem like “mass timber” construction could damage the environment, it is the most aggressive way to minimize carbon emissions. A groundbreaking and energy-efficient way to reduce our carbon footprint, the secrets of “mass timber” are revealed in this documentary. Language: Korean [54 minutes]

“Sentinels” are those who stand guard, watch over, and look ahead. Today, a new corps of sentinels is working to steward and defend many of America’s last intact landscapes from disappearing in a tidal wave of urbanization, encroachment, and land conversion. They fight for clean air, clear water, and the freedom to roam for both people and wildlife. These individuals also play a vital and unheralded role in protecting our national security. THE SENTINELS tells the inspirational stories of farmers, ranchers, and conservationists living, working, and training in our “Sentinel Landscapes” -- installations recognized for both exemplary ecological value and strategic military importance. The Sentinel Landscapes Partnership is a collaboration among the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Department of Defense, and Department of the Interior. This coalition works across conventional boundaries to strengthen military readiness, conserve natural resources, and bolster agricultural economies. Language: english [28 minutes]

On the Pacific Island of Guam, a manmade ecological disaster has been building for the past 70 years. When a non-native species was accidentally introduced to the island in the 1950s, a chain of events was set in motion that has led to the nearcomplete erasure of Guam’s native forest birds. For the past 30 years, agencies across the island have been fighting tirelessly to prevent this tragic fate from being repeated elsewhere. But for the island itself, restoring these once thriving jungle habitats to their former glory is a seemingly impossible task. Language: English [21 minutes]

The villagers of Sekalak, Indonesia have co-existed peacefully with the critically endangered Sumatran tiger for generations. According to the village legend, they are all descendants of this big cat. But the landscape around the village is rapidly changing. Though there are an estimated 30 tigers living in the area, coal mines have been developing and creating roads deep into tiger territory. Tigers have been found and rescued in and around the mining sites.† Language: english [5 minutes]

Wildlife ecologist and National Geographic Explorer, Dr. Rae Wynn-Grant proves you can be a self-identifying “city girl” while pursuing passions in the forest. GPS-tracking, modeling natural habitats, and forecasting migratory patterns are all essential for her mission: studying black bears and their behavior around human areas. Rae exercises GIS tools in South Lake Tahoe where locals - humans and bears alike - are learning how to safely coexist. Language: english [8 minutes]

Tracking Rocky Mountain Lions is a journey deep into the snow-covered Rocky Mountains of Montana and Colorado to demystify how wildlife officials determine how many mountain lions live in the region. Their secretive nature makes determining the exact population size, a significant obstacle. Wildlife managers face the difficult task of preserving populations of mountain lions, while working within the needs and desires of the general public. Modern scientific technology and techniques are uncovering new insights on how mountain lions use habitat, kill their prey, and eke out a living in the harsh terrain of the Rocky Mountains.

Tracking the Peruvian Booby 20-0316 360° Storytelling

Along Peru’s desert coastline, the seabirds reign. Protected inside a national reserve network, guano birds like Guanay cormorants, Peruvian boobies and Peruvian pelicans can nest and rest undisturbed. These birds produce large quantities of guano, or poop, which is harvested commercially for use as fertilizer. For decades guano was big business - until fishing for anchovy became more profitable. These highly sought-after fish also happen to be the birds’ primary food source, leading to competition between the commercial fishery and the birds. To better understand how the two overlap, researchers are studying where Peruvian boobies go when they are at sea. Language: English [5 minutes]

Tribes on the Edge – an independent documentary by CauseCentric Productions, directed and produced by Céline Cousteau, explores the timely topics of land threats, health crises, and human rights issues of the Indigenous Peoples of the Vale do Javari, Brazilian Amazon, expanding the view to how this is relevant to our own lives. Tribes on the Edge has grown into movement driven by a passionate effort to enact tangible impact through campaign initiatives: Action, Communication and Education. More than a narrative of reality in the Amazon, Tribes on the Edge suggests the universal story of our human tribe and how our future is interwoven with each other and with nature. This is a story that invokes the critical importance of respect and care – for land, culture, and humanity. Our survival may depend on it.Language: english [78 minutes] PRODUCTION CO(S): CauseCentric Productions PRODUCER(S): Céline Cousteau DIRECTOR(S): Céline Cousteau CINEMATOGRAPHER(S): Matt Ferraro, Çapkin Van Alphen, Brian Hall SOUND: Jay Shilliday EDITOR(S): Byron W.

20-0321 Ecosystem Long-Form

In the channels of Patagonia, along the coast of Chile, the island of Madre de Dios, one of the planet’s last remaining unexplored wildernesses, is home to some real curiosities. A multidisciplinary scientific team (geologists, ethnologists, botanists, and zoologists) explore this outstanding site during their twomonth stay on the island, adhering to a very precise schedule. The physical commitment of the team members is extremely high Language: French (subtitled in English) [90 minutes]

From fur to feathers, from scales to shells - every creature has some form of characteristic outer layer. This not only determines the outward appearance of the creature, but also serves a number of different purposes that ensure both, the survival of the individual lifeform, and the species as a whole. Language: english [50 minutes]

The Under the Pole team is now heading for the South Pacific to explore the corals of the deep. Aboard the Why, in the company of biologist Laetitia Hédoin, they will study how these reefs function, with the hope of capturing on film the dazzling spectacle of the corals spawning. Thanks to aerial footage and underwater film gathered during dives of up to 150m in previously unexplored waters, they will reveal this fascinating underwater world. A human adventure at the heart of Polynesian culture, that reveals the evolution of the corals upon which the local population largely depends. Language: English [52 minutes]

Bighorn sheep, an icon of the American West, battle to survive as contact with infectious diseases carried by domestic sheep threaten these wild herds. The respiratory pathogen mycoplasma ovipneumoniae (M.ovi), while benign in their domestic sheep hosts, can present deadly complications for bighorn sheep and often lead to widespread pneumonia outbreaks and significant die-offs. Domestic sheep grazing on public land was an integral part of settling the western United States. However, as conservation efforts ramp to rebound bighorn populations, the wool industry, scientific community and wildlife advocates are at a crossroads. Wild and Wool documents a year-long look at a dedicated research team racing to understand the complexities and challenges of M.ovi, before the next outbreak devastates the charismatic species.

The Mustang is one of America’s most iconic animals: a symbol of the Old West, and of Freedom itself. Now tens of thousands of horses that live in the American wilderness across the west are battling for their very lives. Though not slaughtered in high numbers, a few decades earlier, these magnificent animals are hemmed in by government regulations- that restrict their numbers. Excess animals are rounded up with helicopters: splitting up tight-knit family groups and herd alliances. Now a concerned group of activists and scientists known as Return to Freedom is working with Gov’t and donors to provide homes for wild horses in special sanctuaries. Wildlife Biologist and National Park Conservation Director Dr. Niall McCann visits the RTF sanctuaries, Gov’t corrals and travels throughout Nevada and California to investigate this complex human-animal conflict story and discovers some once-in-a-lifetime encounters with these magnificent creatures. Language: english [45 minutes]

The film “Wild Innsbruck” leads viewers along an often poorly defined boundary between two worlds, describing the inevitable encounters between humans and animals in the Alpine region. We encounter chamois, ibex, stoats and ptarmigans, all of which are faced with changes in their habitats, with different effects from species to species. Stoats use corridors of artificial snow as their hunting ground for better camouflage. Chamois have discovered quarries as a new habitat, living between excavators and trucks. Sensitive species like rock ptarmigans, on the other hand, suffer from human disturbance. And then, just beyond the next ridge, Innsbruck’s mountains bedazzle us with astonishing wilderness and exciting behavior of wild animals. We get to witness the hatching of owlfly larvae, filmed for the first time. The documentary also boasts astonishing images of three different woodpecker species competing to feed off an ant colony on a single tree. Language: English [45 minutes]

British Columbia’s Great Bear Rainforest is as spectacular as the Amazon, but its rocky reefs, forested islands and tidal waters offer a bounty only for those who are able to access it. To make the most of their watery surroundings, the wolves that live here are as at home hunting on the open ocean as they are on land. Developing these unnatural skills doesn’t come easily, however, and a young wolf must follow in her parents’ footsteps if she is to survive. Language: English [50 minutes]

The Great Plains of Mongolia is a land of extremes, and its inhabitants must adapt to severe changes in temperature. None is more suited to this unforgiving environment than the Pallas’ cat. These unique animals are able to change their shape with the seasons. But even for top predators, life isn’t easy. Female Pallas’ cats must feed their growing families and pass on unique hunting techniques, as well as hiding skills, to ensure the young will make it to adulthood. Language: English [50 minutes]

Yaktal was the ceremony of the Kaweskar when a whale grounded on a beach and brought abundant food and resources to the southern channels of Patagonia and this ancient canoe ethnic. The 3,000-mile boat journey goes deep into the last unexplored corner of Chile, the Taitao Peninsula, facing one of the hardest oceans and the unpredictable weather. Twenty days on the wild, uncommunicated, contrasting the astonishing nature richness and one of the biggest mysteries, the largest whale stranding ever recorded. Language: espanish [45 minutes]

This short follows the creative process of fine art photographer David Yarrow as he steps ashore the mind-blowing wildlife scenes of South Georgia. Abraham Joffe ACS: “There are few places left in the world that you can find yourself immersed in such a spectacle of nature. The staggering sight of hundreds of thousands of penguins and seals, encircled by a cathedral of mountain peaks and hanging glaciers would leave even the most jaded person in total awe. As David says in the film, you can really become quite dumb-struck by the sensory overload and it can be hard to know where to start. What made it even more special is the fact that we had this place all to ourselves for several days. For our team, the aerials we documented were particularly rewarding. We went through the very involved process of gaining official permission to conduct drone operations on South Georgia’s beaches. Understandably, these areas are home to sensitive breeding rookeries and it was of utmost importance that we had no impact. This extremely rare access gifted us the most powerful drone footage we’ve ever captured and I think add tremendously to the final film. David was there with a big challenge, to capture singular frames that would somehow do justice to what we were witnessing . In some ways, our task as filmmakers seemed less daunting. As the medium of film is almost always a visual assembly, we could gather numerous shots to bring the story of David’s creative process to life.
