The Roxy presents: Wildlife Shorts
Last season’s wildlife screenings were so well received that we have been asked to screen another selection. So, by popular request, Roxy member, Axbridge resident, conservationist and filmmaker Alice Owen returns to present a collection of work from students of UWE Bristol’s MA in Wildlife Filmmaking, in cooperation with the BBC’s Natural History Unit. Some films may be repeated for those who missed them the first time around, and some will be new. The films tackle some of today’s most compelling conservation issues. Bristol is a centre of excellence for natural history programming, so come and see these lovely films, some of which will be introduced by Alice and her fellow filmmakers in person.
