The CineGlobe festival was founded in 2007 and celebrates cinema inspired by science, with programmes of short films, feature films, cinema workshops and special events. Its aim is to select the best new films and to bring film-makers together.
In 2023, CineGlobe is returning for its 12th edition, with four special events in Geneva and neighbouring France. This year, the spotlight will be on science and society.
“CineGlobe in Orbit” will consist of three satellite events organised in partnership with the towns of Grand-Saconnex, Versoix and Saint-Genis-Pouilly. It kicks off with an event in Grand Saconnex on 26 August.
- Orbit #1: 26 August in Grand-Saconnex
- Orbit #2: 16 September in Versoix
- Orbit #3: 15 October in Saint-Genis-Pouilly
Finally, the festival will come to a close by landing at CERN’s Science Gateway on 9 November for an event organised in collaboration with the artist collective Gruppe Laokoon and the Geneva International Film Festival(GIFF). That evening, festivalgoers will be treated to a must-see experimental play called Mauvais Je(ux), which will be performed as part of the official GIFF programme. This innovative production explores the technologies that influence our society and each and every one of us, using the digital data of a real but anonymous person, “je”. Talented actors will bring to life four unique versions of “je”, all based on the same data but seen from different perspectives.
CineGlobe has launched two calls for the play:
