The desire of scientists to communicate elegantly with the general audience and the tireless search of filmmakers for good stories to tell demand tight collaboration between scientists and filmmakers. Having basic knowledge of film storytelling and storyboarding allows scientists to translate their research into elegant and convincing cinematographic stories and facilitates the filmmakers to transform these stories into films. Furthermore, scientists will learn to engage the audience and increase understanding by incorporating narrative attributes into their teaching
and publications.

  • Learn basic skills about conceptual and technical filmmaking. This includes storytelling
    technique, film genre, script-writing, storyboarding and theory of film editing.
  • Attend Locarno Festival to watch films and analyze them in regard to conceptual
    and technical filmmaking.
  • Discuss with professional filmmakers. The Locarno Festival represents an ideal networking
    platform for scientists and filmmakers, which could result in future common projects.
