Thank you to everyone who came to our film festival in Southampton yesterday evening. We celebrated World Lion and World Elephant Day with a series of short films and they were all wonderful – challenging, beautifully-made and each of them gave us much to think about when it comes to Africa and her wildlife.⁣

With huge thanks to the @southamptonartscenter for hosting us (and the exhibition on show, National Geographic Photo Ark by @joelsartore ), the talented filmmakers – @blackbeanproductions @tsavotrust @amivitale James Currie and Goh & Courtney Iromoto. Also, a big thank to our moderator, Timothy Tear, Executive Director of the Africa Region at the Wildlife Conservation Society @thewcs who led the panel discussion, and our wonderful panellists, James Currie, Documentary Film Maker & Brand Ambassador at Wilderness Safaris and Alexandra Hostetter, Director of Development at Big Life Foundation.⁣
