We are very excited to announce that we are collaborating with Bristol Science Film Festival, every year they run a science film competition to encourage and support all filmmakers. It is open to amateur and experienced film makers; the shortlisted films are screened on the Big Screen in Bristol and at a special film-makers screening during the festival.
The JGI are contributing an additional prize this year for a short film submitted to the competition with a data science or artificial intelligence theme. We will award £150 to the winner and £50 to the runner up.
We are interested in seeing your short science fiction or fact films on a data theme. These could explore data ethics, how the information age has affected the spread of misinformation, or how data science and AI is positively changing our lives now and in the future.
The winning film will also be screened during our Data Week Online 2021 (14th-18th June). To be considered, just submit your film to the Bristol Science Film Festival via FilmFreeway and you’ll automatically be considered for this prize.
Already submitted your film? We don’t make final decisions until after the competition closing date of May 1st, 2021. If you have already submitted your film on a data science-related topic, it’ll automatically be eligible for the Jean Golding Institute prize.
Any questions, please get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org) Good luck!
