About Foresight Filmfestival:
Foresight Filmfestival is the first science-vision festival that invites visionaries from research, film making, media, and society to discuss the questions of “How do we want to live? How will we live?” It is also the opportunity to take a look into the future from both a technological and societal standpoint and begin developing concrete visions together to shape the future.
In this way, the short films reveal trends and societal challenges; they might be an early warning, show the potential of already started project or reveal an idea poll for future projects and research process.
The Foresight Filmfestival N° 4 is scheduled to take place in Berlin at the Urania Berlin on June 27, 2019.
Foresight Filmfestival N° 4 is funded by the Lotto Stiftung Berlin and headed by the Urania Berlin in cooperation by science2public – registered society of science communication.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
Visionaries from all disciplines – research, media, film making, culture – that are excited about working with one another, competing with one another, and challenging oneself to discuss and convey their visions for the future in short films all in the interest of society.
“TOP – DOWN – City as a Vision!“:
Where will we live in the near future? How can you imagine yourself in a future city? Will our transport system still be on the ground or already up in the air? Flying around in little space shuttles maybe even to the moon? Will we live in a society of equality, where top and down means no social system, but dreams and ideas of creating a space for everybody of our cities? How can we manage to share our resources fair between us, and treat nature in a sustainable ecological way?
The clips should be a minimum of thirty seconds and a maximum of five minutes long. Requested file formats: .mov and .mp4 with an H264 encoding. We look forward to receiving films in HD resolution (720p or 1080p with an aspect ratio of 16:9). The data rate (bit rate) should be at least 5000 kbit/s.
