Our Resilient Genome is a short science animation by filmmaker Pina Kingman. It was developed as part of the PhysioIllustration Project with the Visualization Group, Department of Informatics at the University of Bergen. The aim of this project is to research novel visual communication techniques and advance knowledge translation methods, specifically in the field of molecular and cellular biology. This research culminated in the creation of a short film describing DNA Repair and is intended for the general public. In addition to showcasing our novel visual communication methods, the film also highlights research undertaken by the Department of Molecular Biology, UiB. The film tells the story of our DNA, how it is constantly breaking and rebuilding over and over again to keep us alive, and provides a glimpse into the fascinating world of cellular biology.
St. Tropez International Film Festival in Nice, France
The Nice in South of France International Film and Television Festival of World Cinema held in the South of France at the same time as the World famous Cannes film festival, in its 4th year is a global industry event that will reach out to the many filmmakers who always place film at the centre of our acts as a truly international film industry event, being held a week before the Cannes International film festival so filmmakers can be in the south of France for both events bringing together films from around the world.
We have built a small but exceptional professional network of industry professional that will look at all films entered and will give business and commercial advice, in some cases the distributors attending will make offers to the filmmakers for their work and to work together to put your movies in the market place, we have the people and skills in our professional team to make this happen, if the professional attending feel there is a market for your movie, they will as with many films over the years of our other festival make it happen. We are unique in the amount of platforms and festival we offer filmmakers, we can create a ripple for your movie to be seen around the world, it all starts here by entering your movie.
Generally, to take nothing into account other than the art of film and the pre-eminence of artistic talent, and finally to facilitate transmission, so that tomorrow's Festival can continue the adventure with the combined strengths of experience and modernity, for those that enter the Festival will truly be the future filmmakers of the film industry.
