  • All submissions should be 1-10 minutes long, unless submitting as a "feature film", and should be primarily original footage taken by the submitter or their team members (i.e., little or no stock footage). The submitter must have received permission to use any non-original audio (i.e., music) or video content. Video quality should be HD to facilitate in-theatre screening.
  • All submissions should be based on scientifically-accurate information, and with the exception of "wild side" submissions, must include at least some verbal communication, which should be in English (or subtitled).
  • Film makers should indicate which category they think their submission should fall under (although we reserve the right to change submission categories as needed).
  • All submissions may be used in our film festival outreach activities during subsequent years.
  • Each film maker may only submit 2 films total, and each film must be in a separate category.

  • Top entries will be determined by a panel of judges from the wildlife and creative professions.
  • The top 2 entries and the best student film from each of the 4 categories will be screened at our festival along with other official selections as screen time allows, one longer (10-15 minutes) feature film.

The Fish & Wildlife Film Festival at the Bipasesores is dedicated to enhancing knowledge and stewardship of wild nature, including fish and wildlife, the wild landscapes they depend on, and the communities that they sustain.

Through our film festival, we challenge filmmakers at all levels, from K-12 students to university students and professionals, to develop and share dynamic films that excite and engage for the benefit of nature and natural resources.
