The SciFilmIt Hackathon is a three-day science filmmaking event followed by a cinema event. Researchers and artists combine their powers to create short science films in teams of four. We invite experts in film, science, communication and teamwork from across the globe to support the team. After the event, the teams take their films to the cinema for evenings of science cinema in which the public engage with the science, scientists and artists and then vote to award a winner the title of best film.
