The festival selection accepts various genres, subjects, and audio-visual forms. We keep our programming open to a wide variety of films, ranging from feature science documentaries, wildlife productions, factual TV productions, to short or online formats. The official selection will be screened to thousands of spectators during the festival week.

AFO accepts any science documentary film presenting the results of systematic observation and exploration of the world within us and around us. We also count in films focusing on scientists as extraordinary professionals or outstanding personalities. We also consider films which put in the spotlight science as such: science as an institution, an inherent part of society, with all the dilemmas and complexities related to the ethics, methods, and applications.

You can submit your film in the following categories:

  • International Science Film Competition
  • Czech & Slovak Science Film Competition
  • Science Short Film Competition
