Explore science at the Edinburgh Film Festival. (360G-Wellcome-096665_Z_11_Z)
Edinburgh International Film Festival is partnering with Edinburgh Neuroscience and the University of Edinburgh in an exploration of the nexus of cinema, neuroscience and biomedical science. This partnership will exist as a strand of events, interactive screenings and cinematic experiments throughout the Festival. It will explore issues including how and why audiences empathise with what they see and hear on screen, how science is represented on screen, as well as using film to isolate, explore and amplify some key contemporary fields of scientific innovation. The partnership will engage new audiences with biomedical science and create an atmosphere that fosters the growth of interdisciplinary partnerships.
