Pariscience: An Incubator for Scientific Projects

Since its creation, Pariscience has strived to give support to professionals and act as an incubator for new ideas. For this reason, the festival backs several projects which combines scientific mediation and film production.


Calls for documentary projects

With the support of its broadcasting partners, the festival fosters new talent and actively stimulates the creation of new documentaries. Each year, several calls for documentary projects are launched. The best projects win funding for their films and get screened at Pariscience the year after.

 

Professional sessions

In order to help professionals face the challenges of an ever-changing work environment, Pariscience organizes free sessions to discuss new shifts in the audiovisual and scientific sectors.

Want to learn more about how to better work with animation? Meet Curiosity Stream’s decision-makers? During Pariscience’s festival, you can get answers to all your questions and meet fellow professionals.

Scientific Ideas Fair

At the inception of every documentary project is an idea. Pariscience organizes every year the Scientific Ideas Fair.

During this event, scientists who believe their research subject could be brought to the screen get the opportunity to meets authors, directors and producers. From these meetings can be born tomorrow’s documentaries…

 

Symbiosis – Make a film in 48h!

The principle is simple, the execution… not so much! Randomly selected duos of directors and scientists get only 48 hours to write, shoot and finish a short film, on a scientific subject matter of their choice.

No matter how demanding, since 2016, dozens of participants have brilliantly taken on this challenge. With the support of the CNRS, the best team wins each year the Symbiosis Prize.

See the films from 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023.
