CineGlobe - Transformation/Transcendence - 3-7 July 2019

CineGlobe International Film Festival at CERN 2019 – we were transformed, we transcended!

That’s it! The 9th edition of CineGlobe is over. The outdoor screen has been packed away, the film-makers have gone home, and the VR headsets are happily back in their charging stations. Between our 65 short films inspired by science from 23 countries, 4 feature films, an awards ceremony, virtual reality experiences, hands-on games with old-school moving images (zoetrope, praxinoscope and the Moviola projector) and workshops on the principles of photography and stop-motion animation, we’re excited to announce we had an attendance of over 2000 interacting with science and cinema at CERN!

Our theme “Transformation/Transcendence” shone through, as many of you told us you took away new ideas about how science and cinema interact in your lives. We would like to take a moment thank everyone who attended the festival and those who made it possible in the first place, including CERN, our partners and sponsors, and our amazing team of dedicated volunteers.
