Sci Film is paving the way to cinema stardom, calling on WA residents of all ages and abilities to capture science in three minutes.

The inaugural Regional Science Film Competition is the brainchild of Film Harvest and Inspiring Australia, who are collaborating to connect regional audiences with cinema and science.

“Cinema brings community together. The environment itself is a vessel for powerful and effective communication, where art and science are fused together in the medium of digital film” said Josephine Hayes, co-founder of Film Harvest.

Inspiring Australia Regional Science Engagement Hubs are supporting the Competition, facilitating hands-on workshops in Geraldton, Merredin, Kalgoorlie, Albany and Busselton. The Merredin workshop will be held on May 2nd, 5:30-8:30pm at Merredin CRC, book now by visiting the website.

“We believe this program will have a lasting impact on school-aged young people, community and family members, education providers, teachers and young adults” said Scitech Science Partnerships Director, Simon Carroll.

The top 15 short films will be selected and screened at Cinemas across the state during National Science Week, on August 17, where audiences can vote live for their favourite.
