  • Why was the #LabMeCrazy! Science Film Festival created?

    In the current context characterized by an overabundance of information, videos represent an essential tool to raise public awareness of science and awaken a passion in young people with a view to creating new research vocations.

  • Why focus on science?

    We need to make all of society aware that scientists’ work makes it possible to tackle the major challenges of our time: curbing climate change, meeting the rising demand for energy, improving health, eradicating hunger and promoting equality in economic and social development worldwide.

    Science satisfies human beings’ thirst for knowledge and helps us advance towards a better society.

  • Why the name #LabMeCrazy!?

    This science film festival was conceived in a university environment and is aimed primarily at young people. For that reason, we wanted a name that would appeal to young people. The name evokes the English expressions “Drive me crazy” and “Love me crazy,” which conjure up enthusiasm and passion, in this case related to science.
