WSF24 Community Panel Proposal

This year we are opening up our programming to our community. This is your chance to have a say in what topics are platformed at the festival in October 2024. 

This is an opportunity to propose to the Wildscreen team and Festival Advisory Board, a session addressing a topic or showcasing work that hasn't yet been done, or could be done in a new and innovative way. 

Submitted proposals will be selected by the Festival Advisory Board, made up of a diverse group of industry professionals from around the world.

There are two slots in the Festival programme available for community-driven content.

We ask that proposals are well-thought through, and that you highlight the importance of this topic, the take-aways the audience will have, and the impact you hope the session to have on the festival, audience and community as a whole. We're sure you are amazingly talented but please make sure the content is not self-congratulatory!

Please can you ensure that all suggested speakers are those that you have links or contacts with (we would all love Sir David Attenborough to be a part of our sessions, but that's not realistic)! If your proposal is successful, you will be approached to help produce the session so direct contacts are a must to ensure the success of your session in the programme. You may also provide reserve speaker suggestions if the initial ideal line-up is not available. 

Please note, we aim to provide a diverse and representative programme of content at the festival, to ensure representation is met across all corners of our industry, so please take this into consideration when writing your proposal. 

Please read the Wildscreen's full terms, cookies and privacy policy before submitting your entry to the Wildscreen Festival Community Content Proposal.

Applications require the following information:

Session title: a snappy title to grab attention
Session synopsis: a punchy, 50 word synopsis that you would hope to read in a festival programme outlining the session. 
Session Proposal: max. 500 word detailed proposal outlining the importance of the proposed topic, and the impact you hope it to have. 
Suggested speakers: must have contacts or link to them all

Options for suggestions:

Panel: a diverse and candid discussion around a specific topic (4 speakers maximum incl. moderator). 1 hour long
Masterclass: practical take-away session providing insight to a technique or craft (3 speakers maximum incl. moderator). 1 hour long
Alternative session: a space for outside of the box sessions. Examples of content could include: lightening talks or content based around a central theme; spoken word; an immersive audience experience. Alternative sessions should be 30 minutes long max.
