Cornwall Wildlife Trust is hosting the event and celebrated filmmaker Ian McCarthy will be doing a Q and A session on both evenings. The award-winning new film follows the turning year in Cornwall and received a prestigious Silver Dolphin Award at Cannes. It showcases Cornwall’s ‘wild heart’ – the dramatic lives of many species including breeding peregrines and seabirds on the cliffs, dolphins, seals and basking sharks in the ocean, and bats and otters hunting in the streams which flow from moor to sea.
Ian McCarthy is a long-term supporter of Cornwall Wildlife Trust, inspiring people’s interest in nature and having featured in their successful ‘My Wild Life’ campaign. Over the years Ian has won Emmy and BAFTA awards and has a reputation as one of the UK’s finest filmmakers, documenting spectacular natural scenes all over the world. He has been behind the lens of some of David Attenborough’s biggest landmark nature series and this personal account shows Cornwall’s wildlife as never seen before.
