Wild by Nature Short Film Festival

A film festival that celebrates everything we love about Victoria’s incredible outdoors. From your local park or creek, to your favourite wild place to escape the busy city, nature plays an important role in all of our lives.

Festival Screening Event

Wild By Nature Short Film Festival will be held online on Saturday the 7th of November. The festival will take place over two online screening events:

3 pm – 4:30 pm three finalists from the Pobblebonk and the Swamp Skink Divisions will be screened, with awesome prizes awarded to the winning entrants from both age divisions. 

7 pm – 8 pm three finalists from the Black Swan Division will be screened, with a prize being awarded to the winning entrant.

Join us for one or both of our screening events to discover why Victorians love and care for their local environments, watch short films from emerging filmmakers from across the state as well as hear stories about nature from Remember The Wild, Living Links and others. Register for Wild By Nature screening events via Eventbrite.

More details on as well as more information on the event program will be coming soon.

This event is free but donations are welcome. Any donations from Wild By Nature will be used to create a short film about Greater Dandenong Environment GroupFriends of the Dandenong Valley Parklands and First Friends of Dandenong Creek. We want to highlight the incredible work these community groups do for the Dandenong Creek and help them promote their wonderful organisations.
