Karlsruhe Science Film Days 2017
The "Karlsruhe Science Film Days 2017" will present a program of science films from all over the world. Building on the success of the 2015 edition, the ZAK | Centre for Cultural and General Studies at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the Wissenschaftsbüro of the Stadtmarketing Karlsruhe GmbH invite filmmakers and scientists to submit their films on scientific topics.
Whether documentaries, animations, mockumentaries, societal criticism or new formats such as 360° videos: All formats are welcome at the second "Karlsruhe Science Film Days". The main goal of this festival is to firmly root scientific documentary film, essay and fiction in the public consciousness and to build a bridge between research, artistic creation and society.
The best film contribution wins the "KIT Science Film Award", which is endowed with a monetary prize of 5,000 Euros. Furthermore, there will be as well as three honorable mentions for outstanding achievements. The jury consists of representatives and experts from the film industry, art scene and science, among them Markus Schmidt from SYNENERGENE's partner Biofaction.
