Join Us for an Inspirational Film Festival


Dear Friend,

At Born Free, we profoundly understand the power of film to advance the fight for animal protection. After all, our organization has firm roots in cinematic history; Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna founded The Born Free Foundation after starring in the legendary film, Born Free, and drew further inspiration to help animals from the tragic death of Pole Pole, an elephant featured in the film An Elephant Called Slowly.

We’re excited to announce an upcoming California film festival that will educate audiences about critical animal issues. Animal Film Festival, presented by the non-profit Center for Animal Protection & Education (CAPE), aims to inspire and entertain on topics about animals:  wildlife, companion animals, and animals used for food, in research, and in entertainment. CAPE received more than 60 films from around the world—and 21 “Official Selections” will be screened during the one-day fest.
