AFO56 official selections is here! Any science documentary film completed in 2019/2020/2021 could be submitted for AFO56 competition. The winner of International Science Film Competition receives 5000 $ in prize money.

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 online festival from 27th April to 11th May.

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.
