Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Fest 2011 competition winners

Since its inception in 1991, the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival organization (JHWFF) has provided broadcasters, filmmakers, and other industry stakeholders with a forum to conduct business, stay informed on emerging market opportunities and technologies, test new equipment, refine program production techniques, and expand the role of media in understanding wild creatures and their habitats.

JHWFF hosts the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival every other year. This event allows television and film industry professionals from around the world to network with their peers and engage in lively discussions, seminars, and forums, all devoted to the world of natural history filmmaking.

Equally committed to a path of education and outreach, the Festival is dedicated to raising awareness and empowering action, through the innovative use of media. Toward this end, the organization fosters innovative collaborations with local nonprofits, community organizations, governmental entities and schools. JHWFF offers special screenings, lectures, and in-school education programs year-round.
