6th Science Filmmaking Marathon
For all Swiss universities and research institutes
Scientists, Postdocs, PhD and Master students enrolled at any Swiss higher education institution are welcome to participate in the Science Filmmaking Marathon
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 5th Global Science Film Festival (www.sciencefilm.ch), with a special award for the best film.
All participating PhD candidates matriculated at UZH will be awarded 2 ECTS credit points by the UZH Graduate Campus.
Participants from Life Science Zurich Graduate School (University of Zurich and ETH Zurich) are also awarded 2 ECTS Credit points.
