Welcome to a free screening of the Golden Owl-winner at Bergen kino, November 8

Every year the University of Bergen (UiB) and the Bergen International Film Festival (BIFF) award the Golden Owl Prize to the best science documentary film of the year.  This year’s winner is Monster in the Mind, a film that explores the hidden depths of the dreaded Alzheimer’s disease.

BIFF shows the film for UiB-employees and students, Tuesday November 8 at 17:30, in MB3 at Magnus Barfot Cinema Centre, Magnus Barfotsgate 12.

All UiB employees and students can collect up to two free tickets each, either in Magnus Barefoot or Konsertpaleet, from Wednesday October 26. Show your employee or student card. There are 220 vacant seats, so it’s first come first served.

In its verdict the jury says about the film: “This year’s winner of the Golden Owl Prize is a wonderful example of how science can enlighten questions of individual and societal concern. With engagement, curiosity, and personal investment, the audience is guided through the film’s multiple perspectives and facts, without losing momentum.”
