This awesome programme brings you face to face with the life and beauty of jungles. Under TIFF, jungle-excursions are organised at various places, which include national parks, sanctuaries, biosphere reserves etc. The aim is to facilitate direct interaction of the participants with nature and its magnificence.
The participants not just enjoy and learn from the scenic beauty of the wild by exploring the jungles on gypsy, elephant, foot, or boat, but also interact with people who dwell in this wilderness or in the surrounding villages. The mission is to study the whole scenario in its entirety, which includes its problems and challenges as well. The participants can record their observations in their cameras and make a film out of it, which can be submitted as an entry to the TIFF competitive section. These films are used to promote awareness on environmental and wildlife conservation.
The participants of a TIFF WildWalk Programme undergo a thorough Orietation Programme & Workshop which includes:
(i) inputs to prepare them for a productive jungle experience
(ii) valuable info & book(s) on animal and bird species
(iii) extensive aesthetic inputs on photography
(iv) technical inputs on script-writing
(v) inputs on documentary filmmaking
The participants also receive wildlife literature published by TIFF, and a certificate for the orientation programme & workshop.
