The festival will run a full slate of films getting either New York or World Premieres through October 20th, films not to be missed by naturalists, conservationists and anyone simply fascinated by wildlife.

The Festival's mission is to call attention to the precious species and habitats that are critical to the survival of humanity. Many of which that are threaten with extinction by the very humanity with which they share the critically fragile ecosystem we call Mother Earth.

The following are three of the most significant premieres that wildlife aficionados will not want to miss.
