BIFF 2019: 25. september - 3. oktober


For the first time BIFF and the University of Bergen present a competition programme specifically for films about research and science. The jury consists of five representatives from different departments of the University. We want to show researchers and educators, festival audience and students how an entertaining, educational and sometimes philosophical documentary is an excellent way to display science and reseach.


The competition programme consists of the following 12 documentaries:
