Festival Profile

The Prague Science Film Fest is co-organised by the Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague and Palacký University in Olomouc. ČZU has been organising the Festival on its university campus since 2011 under the name Life Sciences Film Festival and later ČZU Film Fest. In 2020, it merged with the Palacký University in Olomouc, a host to the International Festival of Science Documentary Films AFO (Academia Film Olomouc) since 1966. In addition to the traditional programme on campus, the Festival has expanded to the city centre and welcomes guests from abroad. The entire cooperation culminates with the Grand Prize awarded to the winning film of both last year’s AFO competition and the main ČZU competition. The Grand Prize comes with an impressive cash reward of $10,000.

The presidents of the Festivals are prof. Ing. Petr Sklenička, CSc. and prof. MUDr. Martin Procházka, Ph.D.

The festival awards a total of 5 prizes:

  1. GRAND PRIZE – prize awarded jointly by AFO Festival in Olomouc and Prague Science Film Fest for the best popular science film. This prize comes with a cash reward of USD 10,000.
    SCIENCE DOCUMENTARY FILM AWARD – prize awarded by the International Competition Jury for the best film in the International Competition of the Prague Science Film Fest (USD 5,000).
