Watch Wildwood's new documentary at the Brighton Film Festival


This week Vanessa Redgrave, Academy Award winner & Unicef Goodwill Ambassador, launched the Brighton Festival with a special screening of Wildwood's important new documentary, The Killing Fields, Shown to an audience of over 1000 of the biggest names in the theatre & Arts. The Film stuck a chord with the audience and writer & broadcaster Polly Toynbee moderated a lively discussion about the issues raised by the film for a number of hours after the event.

Vanessa Redgrave has invited Wildwood's members to join her with her son, film director Carlo Nero and Wildwood's own Peter Smith, for a special screening of the film. This will be followed by a panel discussion chaired by Prof Sir Richard Jolly, United Nations & UNESCO, with contributors to the Film including: Economist Fred Harrison, Environmental Lawyer Polly Higgins and  Farmer & Landowner Dr Duncan Pickard.

The event will be held in the Brighton Dome Concert Hall Sunday 6th May, tickets £10.  Tickets can be booked from this website.

The Killing Fields is a new documentary by Carlo Nero that explores the fragile relationship between wildlife, land, taxation and law in Britain and Europe. Making a powerful case for sweeping reforms, it argues that the only long-term solution to our conservation crisis is to put real value on nature's assets.

The Killing Fields had a 'West End' premier at the Headquarters of 20th Century Fox – Video below:

Wildwood Trust is Kent's unique 'Woodland Discovery Park', a visitor attraction with a difference.

Wildwood is not only the best place to bring the family for a day out, but it is also a bold and innovative new charity, backed by the UK's leading wildlife conservationists. As a new charity Wildwood needs everyone's support in its mission to save our native and once native wildlife from extinction.

Wildwood Trust's vision is to bring back our true 'wildwood', a unique new way of restoring Britain's land to its natural state. This involves releasing large wild herbivores and developing conservation grazing systems to restore natural ecological processes to help Britain team with wildlife again.

The Wildwood 'Woodland Discovery Park' is an ideal day out for all the family where you can come 'nose to nose' with British Wildlife. Wildwood offers its members and visitors a truly inspirational way to learn about the natural history of Britain by actually seeing the wildlife that once lived here.

Set in a sublime 38 acres of Ancient Woodland, Wildwood offers visitors a truly unique experience. Come Nose to Nose with our secretive badgers, experience what it is like to be hunted by a real live pack of wolves, watch a charging wild boar or track down a beaver in his lodge.

Wildwood Trust runs a highly successful programme of Conservation Projects - we are the UK's leading experts in rescuing and re-establishing colonies of Britain's most threatened mammal, the water vole. Wildwood Trust has pioneered the use of ancient wild horses to restore nature reserve. Wildwood Trust has been at the forefront of efforts to re-establish the European Beaver back in Britain where they belong. European Beaver have been proven to help manage water ways to bring back a huge range of plants, insects and animals.
