CineGlobe International Film Festival – a success in 2021 and looking forward to the future!

Thanks to our audience!

Despite unusual circumstances, three postponements, and an 80% reduction in our venue’s normal capacity, we estimate that over the five days of our festival in August, we received over 1700 visitors combined across short film sessions, masterclasses, workshops, virtual reality experiences, feature film screenings and the awards evening. Check out our gallery of the best pictures from the event.

CineGlobe 2021 winners

The heart of the CineGlobe programme has long been the short film competition inspired by science, and this year was no exception. Our theme, (Dis)Orders of Magnitude, attracted over a thousand submissions. We are pleased to highlight the winners!

This year the CineGlobe jury was composed of:
  • Josefa Haas, head of communications at Swiss Universities and former president of the Swiss Films Foundation
  • Marie Bouvier, from Filmar, the Latin American film festival in Geneva and former organiser of local events at CERN
  • Flavia Dias, CERN physicist and member of the ATLAS Collaboration

Following their deliberations, they awarded the following prizes:

  • Best Fiction: WhateverTree, by Isaac King
  • Best Documentary: Bab Sebta, by Randa Maroufi
  • Best Youth Film: LIVE, by Zhi-Jun Kang and Juan-Ru Zou
  • Special Mention: El Agua, by Andrea Dargenio


And the audience has also spoken:


Congratulations to all of the winners!
