International Big Cats Film Festival

Big Cats Film Festival

International Big Cats Film Festival

Our world has been losing our big cats at an alarming rate. These iconic cats, the challenges they face, and how these challenges can be met, are the spotlight through the 16 films chosen as finalists in the International Big Cats Film Festival.

The Secretariat of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) and the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival have announced the International Big Cats Film Festival finalists based on the preliminary judging in the film festival, which was organized as part of the global celebration of World Wildlife Day 2018 under the theme “Big cats: predators under threat.”

The judges-professional filmmakers, big cat biologists and stakeholders from around the world- chose the finalists from more than 200 entries in six categories: Issues and Solutions, Conservation Heroes, People and Big Cats, Science and Behavior, Micro-Movie and Local Voices.

I was honored to be a judge in the Local Voices Category.  I have to say it was one of the most difficult things I have done as every single film was well done and deserving.

The Finalists in the Local Voices:

“Ranger and Leopard”  produced by Wildlife Pictures Institute for Jam-e Jam TV Network.
