The InScience Student Jury evaluates the films they have seen and determines which film they believe is the best science film of InScience 2023. The film that is rated highest by the student jury receives the Student Jury Award and wins a cash prize of €500.
Student Jury Award 2023
For the Student Jury Award of 2023 we are looking for enthusiastic students who want to be in the jury panel. During the festival, which takes place from 15 to 19 March, five students from colleges and universities from all over the Netherlands will view and judge a selection of the film program. At the end of the festival, they choose which filmmaker has made the best science film and deserves the Student Jury Award. The prize is then awarded by the students to the winner.
