The Roxy presents: Wildlife Shorts
Roxy member, Axbridge resident, conservationist and filmmaker Alice Owen presents a collection of work from students of UWE Bristol’s MA in Wildlife Filmmaking, in cooperation with the BBC’s Natural History Unit.

The films feature a diversity of wildlife and locations, from the Tasmanian devil and the lyre bird in Australia, a red panda in the Himalayas, chimps in Liberia and Lear’s macaw in Brazil. They tackle some of today’s most compelling conservation issues, including Indonesia’s love affair with song birds and human-wildlife conflict against a backdrop of poverty in Kenya.  Closer to home, one short film illustrates a dying art – traditional fishing in Hope Cove. Bristol is a centre of excellence for natural history programming, so come and see these lovely films, many of which will be introduced by Alice’s fellow filmmakers in person.
