5 April—5 June 2022

Wildlife filmmaking showcase

From April to June, M Shed will be screening three short films by students and alumni from the Wildlife Filmmaking course at UWE Bristol.

These films combine captivating storytelling with technical and visual excellence. This is an opportunity to view the extraordinary talent being developed in the city.

The films have been created by students and alumni of the MA in Wildlife Filmmaking course at UWE Bristol and can be found in the Bristol Life gallery at M Shed.

On display until 5 June: An Urban Herd by Lizzie Coney
12 minutes 27 seconds, 2021
Our connection with nature and food systems is increasingly detached, especially in cities. An Urban Herd follows Fern learning to milk goats at the UK’s only urban goat farming cooperative, Street Goat. The film shows the benefits that come from a relationship with food and nature.

Lizzie sees film as a crucial tool in shaping behaviours to help combat the climate crisis. This led her to champion this progressive local project. Sustainability was at the heart of the story and the production. The filming process was low impact and carbon zero.

The screenings coincide with the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at M Shed which is sponsored by UWE Bristol and Precision Resource Group.

Wildlife Photographer of the Year is developed and produced by the Natural History Museum, London.
