Bristol Science Film Festival is back! 

After the success of our launch in 2016, the BrisSciFilm Competition 2017 is NOW OPEN FOR ENTRIES!

Last year we received 35 entries which amounted to over 3.5 hours of footage!

Our shortlist was screened at the Cube Microplex during British Science Week and winners were selected by our panel of expert judges. Shortlisted films were also played on the Big Screen Bristol in May, were we were lucky enough to have good weather and a great turn out!

Here’s a recap of last years winners and runners up for a bit of inspiration.

Watch this space as BSFF 2017 is set to be even bigger than last year with more screenings and workshops.
