Wild Film Festival Scotland

Walks, Wildlife and Amazing Journeys

Explore one of Scotland’s loveliest regions, discover species saved from extinction, enjoy outstanding film and photography

Walkers are being invited to discover the hills, coasts, moors and woodlands of Dumfries and Galloway as part of the new Wild Film Festival Scotland (WFFS).

The themes of the event, in Dumfries from 24-26 March, are amazing journeys, wild places and rewilding – which will be celebrated through outstanding film, photography and discussion. At the same time the organisers, led by a group of local conservation charities, are encouraging visitors to spend time exploring one of the country’s less familiar but most beautiful regions.

The festival will feature high-profile speakers such as Springwatch presenter and documentary maker Iolo Williams as well as winners from the 2016 Panda Awards (the wildlife film Oscars).

But there will also be the chance to pull on some walking boots and spend time exploring the Annandale Way, Southern Uplands Way, Mull of Galloway Trail and much more.
