The WWD Film Showcase is a Partnership with United Nations Development Program and CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna) celebrating World Wildlife Day. In a world confronting unprecedented environmental threats, it is essential to empower locally-driven engagement that inspires action, with measurable impact.
On World Wildlife Day 2020, we will celebrate wildlife as a component of biodiversity in its many beautiful and varied forms, raise awareness of the multitude of benefits of wildlife to people, the threats it's facing, and the urgent need for everyone to take actions to help conserve wildlife before it's too late. Winners will be celebrated at a high-level event celebrating the launch of World Wildlife Day at UN Headquarters in NYC, on Tuesday March 3, 2020. Winning and Finalist Films will be showcased throughout the world through special premiere and World Wildlife Day screening events as well as at the Jackson Wild Summit and through Jackson Wild On Tour.
