Update by the edhat staff

Congratulations to edhat subscribers BostonBob and SBLocale67 who won the two all-access passes! Keep an eye out for their short reviews of short films.

In the meantime, pick up your own virtual tickets here and join the fun! The festivals will end this coming Sunday at midnight.

The NatureTrack Film Festival (NTFF) has offered 2 All Access Passes for edhat readers to enjoy their virtual 3rd annual film festival featuring dozens of documentaries and short films from around the world.

From exhilarating and adrenaline-inducing, to wonderous and spectacular, from heart-breaking to hope-filled, discover inspiring stories from passionate filmmakers about the world we live in and share with the other animals on earth. The festival started on Friday and will continue through Sunday, October 18. 

There are also films with some local inspiration. FLIR, the Goleta-based thermal imaging manufacturer, provided a two-minute short as a companion piece to the feature film "Birth of a Pride." FLIR has been working with the World Wildlife Fund’s Wildlife Crime Technology Project to put an end to illegal poaching in Africa. FLIR’s infrared camera technology, paired with cutting-edge software, has become the newest tool to tamp down this rampant problem for the beloved majestic wildlife found on the African continent.

NTFF’s producers wanted to give patrons a look at how thermal imaging is used in the wild. Making this presentation even timelier, these thermal imaging solutions from FLIR are in use now at businesses, airports, and other places that can help screen for elevated body/skin temperature – a possible sign of COVID-19 infection. From public spaces such as airports and train terminals to federal buildings, private offices, and factories – deploying thermal imaging cameras for screening provides a more safe and secure environment for all.  

So, how do I enter to win a pass? 

Great question! This contest is only open to our paid edhat subscribers. If you haven't upgraded your free account yet, you can do so here. We also ask that our winners are able to provide at least one review of a film they watched so we can share it with the edhat community. 

If that all sounds good, send us an email to with your name and edhat handle by Tuesday at 5:00 p.m. The edhat staff will pick 2 winners at random on Tuesday at 5:00 p.m. who will be contacted with their all-access pass. 

If you don't want to wait to see if you win, virtual tickets can be purchased here.

Good luck everyone! Email us at with any questions.

Birth of A Pride is such a beautiful important film! Dereck and Beverly Joubert are Botswana's primary true conservationists and wildlife filmakers! I urge EVERYONE to watch Birth Of A Pride, if you watch only one of the films from this festival! It's brilliant. Lions really need help, they are on the brink.
