Biofaction at the world’s largest Science Film Festival

Two Biofaction films, The Berrymakers and MYCOSYNVAC feat. MC Grease (da disease), were part of the 2018 edition of the Science Film Festival. The films were shown at multiple events in Asia and Africa reaching over 250.000 viewers!

The majority of the viewers were between seven and sixteen years of age, as the festival promotes science literacy and awareness in education. This is realised by addressing scientific, technological and environmental issues in films and educational activities. And with success: 97% of the students said that the festival made them more interested in science!

We were very happy with our participation. The Science Film Festival is organised by the Goethe institute and is screened in non-commercial settings such as museums, universities and schools.
