Buzzing Bumblebees: ORF UNIVERSUM wins “Best Children's Program” Award at Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival 2015

Vienna, 2nd October 2015

With its fascinating nature and wildlife documentary “Secrets of Bumblebees” ORF Universum won the children’s hearts at the Jackson Hole Film Festival 2015 and was awarded the “Best Children’s Program” Award.

Compared to honey bees, these social insects have long been poorly researched. Due to director Kurt Mündl and his usage of macro and high-speed cinematography this film presents us the unique behavior of the fabulous fuzzy big sister of the bee. By its unique storytelling we can discover the wonderful world of bumblebees. The outstanding documentary allows us to learn more about their biology, experience their unique abilities and leave us in awe of these droll little harbingers of spring.

Duration: 1 x 50 min.
Directed by Kurt Mündl
A co-production by ORF and Power of Earth Productions in association with ORF-Enterprise, bm:ukk, Cinestyria and Kultur Niederösterreich
Available worldwide
