CineGlobe returns for its fifth edition in 2015

For its fifth edition, CineGlobe celebrates Convergence! The theme embraces the meeting of minds, methods and meaning of our times. It marks the reunion of science and art, technology and personal expression, research and creativity as the 21st century witnesses a new renaissance as artists and scientists venture beyond their areas of specialty to bridge science and art. The festival is also about convergence of youth and age, the amateur and the experienced, about hi-tech and low-tech, social and personal. As the world becomes a global village, CineGlobe bears witness to the process through the moving image.

A special landmark for this year is a 360-degree projection of films in a geodesic dome, a first of its kind in Switzerland. The dome, built by a local artist, will be the venue for interactions and evening events.

The festival itself has three main segments: films, workshops, and interactions. The fiction and non-fiction films have been selected from almost 900 submissions from all five continents. Family sessions with age-appropriate sessions will be repeated on the weekends.

The interactions include an eight-month Hackathon challenge to tell stories about science using the Oculus Rift.

During the festival, the audience members are invited to meet and interact with the filmmakers and jury.

Three workshops — How to make a pinhole camera with a tetrapak, the Art of the Timelapse, and Stop-motion animation — will also be hosted. (Watch this space for more information in due course.)
