UNKNOWN BELIZE – The UK Premiere

The European Nature Trust (TENT) will be hosting the UK premiere of Unknown Belize on 7th June 2023 at the Royal Geographical Society (RGS). The documentary uncovers the wild wonders of Belize, showcasing a little-known nation of immense pride and purpose.  Proceeds from the event will be directed to the protection and promotion of Belize’s natural environment, and the foundations that do so much to safeguard it. We invite you to join us for the premiere, to be inspired and to contribute to the protection of Belize’s natural heritage.

A Groundbreaking Series

From stunning coral reefs and pristine rainforests, to savannahs and wetlands brimming with biodiversity, Unknown Belize explores the nation’s unique natural beauty and character in conservation. As we journey across Belize’s diversity of marine and terrestrial habitats, we explore visionary environmental projects, meeting the passionate conservationists and grassroots foundations working to preserve the nation’s natural heritage. We encounter the rich diversity of Belizean cultures, witnessing the vibrancy of a nation that has quietly been preserving its natural environment. Where other nations have dominated the international travel agenda, Belize is a nation so unique in its offering to the curious, conscious traveler. Woven throughout the documentary, we encounter a plethora of inspiring conservationists, wildlife campaigners, and new, sustainable community-based agribusinesses.

When it comes to environmental protection and sustainable development, the nation is providing a blueprint to the world. 80% of the nation remains undeveloped. Where only 17% of the world’s land and 10% of our oceans are currently considered protected, Belize is leading the way; the nation has nearly fulfilled its commitment to the United Nation’s recent agreement to protect 30% of the world’s land and oceans by 2030. At this most challenging crossroads, nations of the global south preserving the world’s natural wealth have cause for togetherness, for celebration and pride, as we carve a more sustainable global future.

Unknown Belize was produced by OneTribeTV and shot by Feste Films.

An Evening For Conservation Heroes

TENT has selected the Royal Geographical Society (RGS) as a world class event space to host guests from the world of travel, commerce, finance, media, nature conservation and of course TENT’s loyal supporters!  There will be ample opportunities for networking and celebration. We will screen a specially curated cut from the series with a break for food/wine and Belizean rum cocktails!
