InScience Film Festival


InScience offers researchers a unique platform for sharing their insights and for collecting data for their research in a festival setting where film and science imagination are central. Through experiments, research set ups and debates, InScience actively involves its audience in the creation of scientific knowledge and let them experience how scientific research is accomplished. Scientists from all disciplines form an important link in the festival program.

Call for research

All academic disciplines are welcome at InScience. In previous editions, for instance, scientists from Radboud University carried out the experiment Gaming Against Your Brain. By involving visitors in a game against their AI, they tested whether it could predict human action based on brain activity. The Hot Politics Lab (University of Amsterdam) confronted the public with their political gut feelings. Scientists of Utrecht University helped people with their fear of public speaking by making use of Virtual Reality.
