Scarred Lands and Wounded Lives: The Environmental Footprint of War has been selected as a finalist for Wildscreen, the world's largest and most prestigious international wildlife and environmental film festival, held every two years in Bristol, UK. Wildscreen 2008 will take place from October 19-24.
For over 25 years, Wildscreen has attracted hundreds of delegates from around the globe who work in film, television and the press, as well as those actively involved in working to conserve the environment. Scarred Lands and Wounded Lives is one of three finalists – and the only American film – selected for the Natural History Museum Environment category, which focuses on conservation, issues of sustainability and environment, and the need to protect the natural world. Scarred Lands and Wounded Lives will compete with the other finalists for a coveted Panda Award – the “Oscar” of environmental film (click here for a complete listing of finalists.)
