“The Film Festival is a personal mission, and an effective means to shed light on the state of some of the most endangered species living on our planet,” WCFF Founder & CEO, Christopher J. Gervais, FRGS said.
Captured Travel Media is pleased to announce it will be the official media representation agency for the WCFF in Australasia.
