Bettina Dalton


“Bettina (‘Tina’) Dalton is an Australian documentary producer and director, celebrated as one of the central women who have, and continue to, shape the face of natural history filmmaking in Australia. She is passionate about stories that resonate globally and that shift the dial on social and environmental issues. Many of her projects are borne from discovery and reimagining of little known film archives.

As Executive Producer and Principal of WildBear Entertainment, Bettina has produced and directed diverse genres of award-winning content for audiences around the world. Her recent feature documentary ‘Playing With Sharks’ about Australian icon, conservationist and filmmaker Valerie Taylor, was acquired by National Geographic Documentary Films following its world premiere at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival. Another of Tina’s recent projects is the SBS/ZDF/PBS documentary special ‘Bushfire Animal Rescue’ about the rescue efforts to safeguard wildlife during Australia’s black summer and beyond. “
