On The Wild Side (2019)
Directed by Giacomo Giorgi, 85 mins
Wednesday 26 May, 19:30 BST plus panel discussion
All over the world, humans continue to view the hunting of animals as a hobby. No longer a fundamental tool for survival, the hunting of wolves, rhinos, birds, foxes and many other species is now more for entertainment, and damages the fragile wildlife on which we depend on to survive.
On The Wild Side unites the global anti-hunting movement and sheds light on the psychology of hunting, and what drives people to kill for entertainment or sport.
Featuring interviews with activists, politicians and organisations around the world, it investigates and exposes the effects that hunting has on local ecosystems, wildlife populations, and endangered species, and shows how hunt saboteurs, mobile veterinary clinics and political lobbyists are integral to conserving our planet’s wildlife.
The panel discussion after the screening will be moderated by Alice Hawryszkiewycz, Global Health Film Advisory Board member, in conversation with On the Wild Side director Giacomo Giorgi, Andrea Rutigliano, Committee Against Bird Slaughter, Eduardo Goncalves, Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting and Steve, Hunt Saboteurs Association.
Each ticket will be entered into a draw with a chance to win:
- Signed copies of Trophy Hunters Exposed: Inside The Big Game Industry, Trophy Leaks: Trophy Hunters and Industry Secrets Revealed or Killing Game: The Extinction Industry by Eduardo Goncalves
- Global Health Film Festival 2021 passes and tickets

Net proceeds from the screening will be shared with the three not-for-profits represented on the panel discussion: Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting, Committee Against Bird Slaughter and the Hunt Saboteurs Association.
