The documentaries “Wanted Owl” and “Leo 80. The Story of a Leopard” will take part in prestigious festivals in Germany, Estonia and Kyrgyzstan.
Films of the Living Planet channel were included in the competition program of the best eco-festivals in the world, such as Green Screen, Matsalu Nature Film Festival and MӨNGҮ.

We hope to see the projects of our channel in the final of the competitive program, ”says Maria Morgun, editor-in-chief of the Living Planet TV channel.
Premiere of the film “Leo80. The story of a leopard ”took place on the channel in 2016 and caused a real sensation. The real story of saving a wounded animal has affected the hearts of millions of viewers. In the film, the story is conducted in the first person, that is, the viewer sees everything that happens as if through the eyes of a leopard. From the moment you get into the trap to the thrilling denouement - will the rare wild cat manage to return to nature or have to stay among people. To realize the director’s plan, the film crew had to climb trees, walk along logs, jump streams and use additional devices like leopard glove-paws. As a result, the “story of a leopard” that happened in the Far Eastern Reserve turned into a real television drama.
In September last year on the TV channel "Living Planet" a screening of the documentary "Wanted Owl." Finding a fish owl nest in the Ussuri taiga is almost impossible. To see and remove his chicks seemed an impossible mission. Even the best ornithologists of the country could not guarantee the creators of the film, and the filming process was complicated by difficult climatic conditions - the fish owl nests and takes offspring in February in a 40-degree frost. As a result, the viewer sees both the search for the bird and the terrible story of the photographer who embarked on this adventure.
The results of the competition program of the festivals will be available very soon. MӨNGҮ Film Forum will be held from September 3 to 6, Green Screen Festival - from September 12 to 16, and the Matsalu Nature Film Festival - from September 19 to 23.
