ANDONI CANELA’S MASTERCLASS: Nature Documentary Films. Presentation of his last movie: Panteras
After several months of work, we are here to present you what will be the next documentary and photographic report of Andoni Canela: Panteras, a long-term project, after three years travelling.
The jaguar is the first character of a journey in the search of great felines. The objective is to observe pumas, jaguars, leopards, lions and cheetahs in their natural habitats, explain stories of their free life and show the beauty and its exciting lives, but also the problems, threats and challenges they have to face for their survival. We will talk about all this and much more at the 2018 FICMA Festival.

Since 1994, he works as a photographer, journalist and documentary filmmaker. His latest work is the documentary film El viaje de Unai, which was officially selected as candidate to the best documentary film for the Goya Awards.
He has published more of a dozen books on wildlife, nature and environmental issues. Among his works stand out La Llamada del Puma, La Mirada Salvaje and Encounters with the Iberian fauna, which gathers more than a hundred animals photographed in freedom in their Iberian habitats and narrates in first person the encounters with the most representative species. Many of his books have been translated into several languages.
Andoni Canela has photographed deserts, rainforests, glaciers, volcanoes, seas and mountains on five continents. He has also carried out numerous projects aimed at documenting the biology of endangered fauna of different habitats: the Bengal tiger in India, the panda in China, the grey whale of Baja California or the polar bear in the Arctic are some examples. He has photographed in freedom the most emblematic species of Iberian fauna: the brown bear, the wolf, the lynx, the bearded vulture or the imperial eagle. In 2009, he received the Godó Prize for Photojournalism for a report on the Iberian wolf.
His photographs appear regularly in media such as National Geographic, La Vanguardia, El País, BBC Wildlife, Newsweek and The Sunday Times.
