£1,710raised of £1,500 target by 19 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,710 to bring the wonderful Kenyan naturalist & wildlife filmmaker Sammy Munene to Wildscreen 2018 covering all cost inc travel, visas & insurance.

    London, UK
    Funded on Thursday, 1st November 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Pretty much anyone who's worked in Kenya making wildlife films has worked with Sammy, he's a natural history legend who loves a good cup of tea, a laugh & sitting for months watching endlessly dull cats. He manages to find that perfect spot for the perfect shot making us all look very professional and as a small thanks for his endless patience we're going to try to raise the funds to bring him over for the first time to The UK for Wildscreen 2018.
