Arts and science film festival 25th of June

What if we could reinvent the dodo or clone cows just like we copy a computerfile? On June 25th we will screen 17 short movies during the BIO-FICTION filmfestival at Mediamatic, all focusing on the tension between science and fiction. The BIO-FICTION screenings will be introduced by its founder Markus Schmidt and will end with a panel discussion by designer Marjoleine van der Meij and Vice Motherboard's Alejandro Tauber, followed by live music by 'Power to the Pipo.'

BIO-FICTION is a collaboration between Synenergene, Biofaction(AT) at Mediamatic.

Video Still from the short movie: Living Earth - What if food were consumed alice, asa fictional character? What if food was able to play with our cutlery or create hyper-sensations in our mouth? Ink this film, dishes are living, moving, created things. Beautiful and stomach-churning at the same time. Minsu Kim
