During the expert meeting InVision, scientists, filmmakers, and animators explore the genre science film. Experienced professionals from the science and film industry are looking into what visual artistic thinking can mean for scientific practice and are discussing how to specifically fund a science film. At the end of the meeting, The Prediction Machine is premiered, a co-production of InScience and Donders Institute and the first InScience-initiated science film.
The panels include: Monica Bello, head of Art Program CERN, Peter Hagoort, director Donders Institute, Taco Stolk, head of ArtScience Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunsten Den Haag (KABK), Pieter van Huystee, film producer and Rob van Hattum, VPRO en NEMO Science Center.
Scientists with plans for a film and filmmakers with an interest in science present their work and ideas. Who wants to work with them? There are pitches of, among others, experimental physicist Theo Rasing, Neerlandicus Johan Oosterman, chemist Jeroen Jansen and cultural anthropologist Coco Kanters. The filmmakers who are presenting themselves are Ditteke Mensink, Suus Hessling, Remco van Schadewijk, Ruut van der Beele and Ilja Kok (Copper Views).
The prediction machine
The Prediction Machine is a co-production of InScience and Donders Institute and the first InScience-initiated science film. The film shows that our visual perception is not a passive registration process, but is actively driven by our predictions. The film is based on research by Floris de Lange (Donders Institute). Film maker Marleine van der Werf made, among others, the documentaries Illimited (NFF, IDFA) and Free Market (NPO 2Doc). After the premiere, Van der Werf and De Lange are to talk at InVision about the creation of the film.
InVision takes place on Friday 10 November from 11.00 until 17.30 at Lux, Nijmegen. It costs €10,-, including lunch. You can sign up (required) until Friday 3 November, via this form.
InVision is made possible by the VEVAM Fund.
