Programme of the 6th Edition of CineGlobe


This year the festival will be an exceptional Summer Edition: CineGlobe Estival!


The 6th edition of CineGlobe International Film Festival at CERN will take place exceptionally during the first week of July 2016 (on the Globe ground at CERN, from Wednesday 6 to Friday 8 July) and then during the Nuit de la Science (at the Museum of History of Science, on July 9 and 10).


The full program will appeal a wide audience and families with fun and informative activities:



For the first time in Europe, a special edition of the 48 Hour Film Project – only about Science Fiction – will take place at CERN physics laboratory. The participants, during the launch event on Friday night, will have the opportunity to consult with physicists and other scientists about the creation of their Science Fiction stories. The filmmakers will compete to create the best short science fiction in just 48 hours.

All the movies from the Science Fiction contest will be projected during the CineGlobe Film Festival at CERN, from 6 to 10 July. The filming weekend will take place from Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd July, with the launch at CERN on Friday evening at 7 p.m.



Come play carnival-inspired games with a neuroscience twist! At the Emotional Circus, contestants of all ages can don specially-designed machine-brain interfaces and challenge themselves, and others, in fun contests to see who can feel the most! Fill balloons with bliss, race cars with rage, partake in the world’s first oxytocin-measuring kissing contest! Win fancy prizes just by repressing your desire to win fancy prizes! And after all that, get a nice head scratch from a head scratching robot!



Every evening during the festival there will be an open-air cinema with films inspired by science: from 6 to 8 july, on the Globe ground at CERN; on 9 and 10 July,  at the Museum of History of Science in the park of Perle du Lac.



From 6 to 8 July, there will be projections of series of short films inspired by science in the Globe of Science and Innovation at CERN, at lunch time and late afternoon.
