Albert's  International Wildlife Film Festival was created in 1991 by a team of twelve voluntary people.
One of them had had the idea to achieve a cultural challenge which would underline their passion .
The first year, Albert's Festival was a venture full of surprises and discoveries and, as years went by, it quickly
became an event which couldn't be ignored in the world of animal films. It is now greatly considered by directors
and producers on the five continents. Every year, thanks to its international personalities who compose a supreme panel of judges, this Festival rewards the most recent animal films shot by amateur or professional
film directors worldwide.
