Where science meets art, design and film.

The BIO·FICTION Science Art Film Festival is one of a kind: It’s a creative and boundary-crossing event with a program filled to the brim with content exploring cutting-edge emerging sciences – in the present, but also in possible futures.

The most recent edition took place on September 23 & 24, 2019 in Vienna with a focus on neurotechnologies. Have a look at the rich festival program featuring our short film competition, cross-disciplinary discussions, a brain-computer interface demo, a Leonardo LASER Talk and much more…

Winners of the BIO·FICTION 2019 Short Film Competition

We were honored to receive almost 2000 amazing film submissions from 101 countries around the world, and our jury worked hard to select 70+ films for the festival. The 28 films chosen as semi-finalists were screened during the festival. The winners and runners-up in the categories documentation, fiction and jury special were announced on stage on the second day of the festival (September 24, 2019).
