#LabMeCrazy! Science Film Festival is an international event is born to transmit passion for science, giving recognition and awarding some of the best productions related to science. It will take place in Pamplona (Spain), from February, 21st – 25th, 2023.

#LabMeCrazy! Science Film Festival is a Museo de Ciencias Universidad de Navarra initiative. This institution Works on three basic lines: research, education and popularization of science. Under the motto “Land, Beauty and Commitment”, the museum conceives science to serve nature and human being.

Because, in the current context of overabundance of information, film and video are essential tools to approach science to the public and rouse among youth the passion that will create new reserachers vocations.

Because we need to transmit to society as a whole that scientists work allows us to face the great challenges of our time: curb climate change, supply a widening energy demand, improve health, eradicate hunger or promote equality in economic and social developement in the world.

And because science satisfies human being thirst for knowledge, and helps to move towards a better society.

This science film festival is born in a university environment and is primarily directed towards young people. That is why we looked for a name that is attractive to youth. The name remembers the English expressions "Drive me crazy" and "Love me crazy" that denote enthusiasm and passion, related in this case to science.

Because scientific film and video have unique abilities to achieve the festival goals, as they:

  • Adapt complex issues into accessible and enjoyable stories.

  • Awaken emotions in the audience, showing realities that otherwise wouldn’t be available for them.

  • Impact, do not leave indifferent. They confront the viewer with a raw reality, without intermediaries.

  • Invite to reflect, as a previous step to a possible change of attitude on scientific and environmental issues.

Any audiovisual production on a subject related to science, completed no earlier than January 1, 2019, can participate in the competition.
