Jackson, WY, USA (February 10, 2014) — Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival is partnering with WGBH Boston, the largest content producer for PBS and longtime producer of the acclaimed science documentary series NOVA, to bring the Jackson Hole Science Media Awards and Symposium to Boston, the hub of the nation’s scientific, research and technological community.
“The Science Media Awards are unique in the business. There are other festivals and gatherings that focus on science, but the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival’s symposium goes a step further by bringing scientists, producers, filmmakers and thought leaders together to talk about the most important topics in science and the innovative trends driving discovery. WGBH is proud to partner with the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival to facilitate this important conversation in Boston,” said Jonathan Abbott, WGBH’s president and CEO.
More than 300 filmmakers and science media stakeholders will convene over three days in September at networking and professional development events at a number of venues in Boston and Cambridge. Select film screenings, filmmaker discussions and high-profile keynotes from members of the scientific and film community will be open to the general public and sessions will be recorded for international distribution over the Web.
