First conference of the European Academy of Science Film at CERN

All three of us, Kerstin Hoppenhaus, Sibylle Grunze, and Thilo Körkel, are members of the relatively new European Academy of Science Film, EURASF. It has the goal of promoting a »European network of science communicators, filmmakers, film producers and festival organizers in Europe«, to support science films and to maintain high standards. In July it has held its first three-day-conference at CERN.
 
Among other things, EURASF is looking into questions of how a European network can contribute to make more science films available to the public and thus find broader audiences. How can science communication be strengthened by »europeanization«? How can filmmakers monetize their content on the web? And how can quality standards be increased on YouTube where so many young people make first contact with science clips?
