At the fourth Global Science Film Festival, the organisers’ motto reads: “The shortest distance between science and society is cinema”. The GSFF celebrates film as a means of communication in the scientific sphere. Beginning on November 19th, international films on numerous scientific topics will be shown in Zurich’s Filmpodium and at Cinema Rex in Bern. Once again, in the “Scientists as Filmakers” section, films will be presented that have been produced by scientists and researchers. The researchers were involved in the creation of several short films on scientific subjects which they portrayed in visually appealing and entertaining ways. The films are being shown online from 19th to 25th November, and at the Filmpodium in Zurich between 26th and 28th November.

The Global Scientific Film Festival was born in 2017 and aims to provide the first Swiss showcase for international scientific films in all disciplines. The GSFF is organised by the Science Film Academy and is supported by 10 Swiss universities and research centres. The festival brings together professional filmmakers and scientists-as-filmmakers in a celebration of the art and science, to interpret the world around us. The film festival is held in Bern and Zurich (Switzerland) and run in November every year. The GSFF is also a platform for numerous marathons and workshops, throughout the year. The festival screens short and full feature films (fiction, documentary, animation, musical…etc.)
