Meeting researchers, people with a passion for their work

The festival’s motto: Promoting research work and making it better known, understood and loved
The festival organisers’ aim is to increase the visibility of current research work through films and to support researchers with competition prizes.
The researchers who made the films attend screenings which makes the festival a meeting place for rich exchanges between researchers, film-makers, producers and the public.

The festival’s title reflects the desire to spotlight the work of researchers – men and women striving to gain better understanding of the world through their chosen fields of investigation.

To maximise accessibility to the sciences and research is the organisers’ watchword and therefore entry to all festival events is free having been financed by contributions from public sector establishments and private partners.
