The Hunt: Hide and Seek
The Hunt captures the dramatic encounters of predator and prey in an entirely new light. Featuring the extraordinary strategies of a huge range of predators, from cheetahs and African wild dogs to killer whales and polar bears, these images and stories will revolutionise what you thought you knew about life in the wild. Whether through speed, stamina or complex subterfuge, each creature’s strategy is honed to its environment – and remarkable adaptations mean that the hunted often can, and do, outwit their hunters. It’s a life-or-death duel where each animal’s skills are stretched to the very limit.
A production by Silverback Films, co-produced with the BBC, BBC Worldwide, BBC America, The Open University, CCTV9 & NDR Naturfilm

Wildscreen Panda Award nominations: Series Award, Script Award, Panasonic Cinematography Award (large crew), Editing Award, Music Award, Films at 59 Sound Award

As this screening is outdoors we recommend that visitors wear warm clothing and bring something to sit on as seating will not be provided. Bringing a picnic is also encouraged as there will be no food or drink vendors at the event.
