Person of the Forest, screening at 7:05 p.m.

Directed by Melissa Lesh

In the disappearing lowland rainforests of Borneo, research is underway to uncover unique cultural behaviours in wild orangutans.

Daroji, screening at  7:30 p.m.

Directed by Sugandhi Gadadhar

Daroji is a short film for children, introducting them to wildlife, specifically those from in and around Daroji Sloth Bear Sanctuary in the Karnataka, India. Bindu, a female Indian Sloth Bear, tells the story of different families, including her own and shares a friendly note with her audience, suggesting that man and animal can co-exist in harmony.


Lemming—The Little Giant of the North, screening at  7:50 p.m.

Directed by Zoltan Torok

They are small. They are angry. And every four years or so they appear in masses seemingly from nowhere. Meet the Norway lemming, perhaps the most misunderstood and mysterious animal of the Scandinavian mountains... and the hero of our latest wildlife documentary. View the official trailer.


Yosemite, screening at  8:50 p.m.

Directed by Oliver Goetzl

Yosemite National Park is a place of superlatives. Where else can you find sheer granite cliffs 900-meters high and giant sequoias well over 1,000 years old? Beneath these towering heights live animals that make Yosemite their home: from bobcats, to black bears, to coyote and golden eagles. Follow Yosemite's inhabitants throughout the seasons, in a unique portrait of this legendary park.
