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. Over the three days they are mentored by experts in film, science, communication and teamwork from across the globe. 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. 

Thank you for visiting the SciFilmIt project. Our SciFilmIt Hackathons planned in Geneva, Basel and Zurich have been postponed for at least five months. We are still working on growing our activities from our homes and will announce any news through our social media accounts. We wish you good health and strength during this challenging time.
