Bristol Science Film Festival at Data Week Online — June 18th

This year we’ve partnered with the Jean Golding Institute (JGI) — amongst other University of Bristol-based research institutes — to offer the JGI data science and AI film prize. JGI have kindly invited us to present the eligible films submitted to our competition this year and the prize during their Data Week Online.

On Friday June 18th 14:00-15:00 UK time, we’ll be virtually screening the five science fact or fiction films on a data science and AI theme shortlisted for the JGI prize. Some of the makers behind the films will also be joining us to introduce their films and answer your questions.

The event is FREE to join, and just requires registration via Eventbrite.

Full details of the films we’ll be playing are below. We hope to see you there!
