BIFF 2020



A masterclass for filmmakers, researchers and media


Aulaen, University of Bergen

Wednesday 30th of September, 12.00-14.30


A logical progression from last year's BIFF and UiB "Golden Owl" (Gulluglen) prize for the best film about science and research is the inclusion this year of a Masterclass in science communication.

The Masterclass invites you to a dialogue between filmmakers with solid experience in using science, researchers who have used film as a medium for broader communication and televisual experts focusing on popularization of scientific topics. The focus will be how to spread vital research to more people using films, long or short. Come and get to know the filmmakers, broadcasters and scientists and help us all improve our ability to communicate science to a broader audience.
