CFE: Imagine Science “Symbiosis Film Competition”

For the 10th Annual Imagine Science Film Festival in New York, our yearly short film competition will once again bring together scientists and filmmakers to create a science-inspired short film, this time involving our theme of “hybrid” and taking place over the course of one week. Filmmakers and scientists will be randomly paired and given all additional information on our opening night, October 13. On Monday, October 16 at the Bowery Arts+Science , there will be a lab meeting to go over cinematic works-in-progress and presentation of scientific feedback. The public assisted by Tribeca Film Institute will provide feedback, and all final films will be screened on our closing night, October 20, when a winner will be selected!

Check out our previous years’ films from Symbiosis Film Competition 2016 and 2015.

While the overarching Imagine Science Film Festival theme this year is HYBRID, for symbiosis, we’ll be focusing on a specific sub-theme of IDENTITY.

How does a recombinant genome shape an individual? How does a multi-faceted or interdisciplinary origin shape the concerns of the present? How do many factors create a cohesive identity?

OPEN CALL FOR APPLICATIONS BEGINS JUNE 1st! To apply to the competition we invite scientists and filmmakers to submit a cover letter and resume with links of work to Please include a few lines on with your HYBRID-IDENTITY theme concepts and/or inspiration.
