Industry

Another part of the AFO festival is the Industry programme in which we offer workshops, lectures, panel discussions and space for networking of professionals from the TV and film production sphere with both Czech and foreign scientific representatives.

The annual programme includes opportunities to screen appealing 3D popular science films in Czech cinemas, financing popular science films in Central European space or popularising science via YouTube or other online platforms.

The main objective of the Industry section is to create an international partner network of institutions popularising science, especially by using audiovisual resources, i.e. TV and film productions, festivals, science museums or universities and their audiovisual centres. The ideal benefit of networking should be sharing experiences, strengthening the interaction between the scientific sphere and the audiovisual industry, promoting science as an important social issue, and last but not least, highlighting the potential of the scientific film and TV formats for education and communication of science.
