In the filmmaking marathon, we train researchers in tools used in dramatic storytelling and filmmaking to communicate their research, thereby making their science more readily accessible for a broader audience. Course participants learn the basics of visual storytelling and filmmaking and in working in groups supervised by professional filmmakers will produce short films during three intensive course days. The produced films will be screened as premieres at the 4th Global Science Film Festival (, with a special award for the best film.

Some results of the previous filmmaking marathons are here
