Special Mention for Unlikely Leopards

Dear Dereck, Beverly and Verity,


We are happy to inform you that your film “The Unlikely Leopard”

received a Special Mention from the International Jury at Sondrio

Festival 2013 – International Documentary Film Festival on Parks (XXVII

edition, Sondrio, Italy, 30 September – 6 October 2013):


“The jury feels compelled to make a special mention for the film The

Unlikely Leopard. This strong competitor used superior cinematography

and excellent narration to challenge the audience to question the

relationship between our appreciation of beauty and the realities of

exploitation. For demanding our attention to a serious conservation

dilemma, this work shows us the danger in loving the leopard to death.”
