2023 Good Natured Film Festival

Conservation Optimism is built on the belief that empowering everyone to make a difference for nature, while also learning from successes and failures within the conservation sector, is key to securing our planet’s future. Our fifth film festival will take place on July 15, 2023 from 6-9pm at the Oxford Museum of Natural History .

Submissions have now closed. We will be selecting short films for the following categories:

  • Student

  • Nature Recovery

Our judges for 2023 are Steve Hickner, Libby Penman, Karen Partridge and James Shooter.

We are very grateful to the Leverhulme Centre for Nature Recovery at the University of Oxford for funding this event, and to the Oxford University Museum of Natural History for hosting us!
