Theme of the Year 2022
Equal Opportunities in Science
Equal opportunity is a state of fairness in which individuals are treated similarly, unhampered by artificial barriers or prejudices or preferences. Innovations resulting from science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields have positively touched nearly every aspect of human life. Yet, even today, science can exacerbate the equality divide in subtle and more pervasive ways and the continued underrepresentation of minorities and women in the scientific enterprise represents a challenge to cultivate an adequate international scientific workforce.
Diversity in science refers to cultivating talent and promoting the full inclusion of excellence across the social spectrum. Diversity is essential to delivering excellence in STEM. A diverse and inclusive scientific workforce draws from the widest range of backgrounds, perspectives and experiences thereby maximizing innovation and creativity in science.
The Science Film Festival 2022 is committed to increasing awareness on the issue of diversity and inclusiveness in STEM from underrepresented groups, in which studying and working in science is open to all and for the benefit of all sections of society.
During the festival period, the films are screened non-commercially in museums, schools, universities and other educational venues in participating countries through coordinated efforts of partners with existing networks and the capabilities to organize such screenings. Submitted films do not need to relate directly to the annual theme.
All films accepted into the annual official selection of the Science Film Festival are in competition for six awards bestowed at the festival. The awards are complimented with a cash prize of 1 000 Euro each. The Prize of the Jury is complimented with a cash prize of 3 000 Euro.
