BIFF 2019: 25. september - 3. oktober

The Golden Owl

the golden owl

The Golden Owl (Gulluglen) is a competition programme for science documentaries. The award was established in 2014 and is a collaboration with the University of Bergen.

BIFF has always had a close connection with the University of Bergen, whose science employees help shape the content of our school program, as speakers, and as participants in our debates and seminars on topics tied to our films. The need for research based knowledge as a foundation for the central topics of our time lies at the core of The Golden Owl. This programme is meant to contribute to science reaching a wider audience. Our films are meant to entertain and create professional involvement, and the competition should reflect academic variety as well as diverse storytelling.
