What is LabCut?

LabCut is a 3-day workshop aimed at bringing filmmakers, artists and scientists together to create short science films, organised by SynBio CDT students Cansu Kuey, Charlotte Gruender and Patrick Capel.

The workshop will provide expert training on shooting and editing and produce short films. The films will be screened in British Science Festival here in Warwick in September 2019, and the public will vote for their favourite!

Fellow science communication enthusiasts are organising a Science Film Festival in Bristol! You will be able to submit the films created in the workshop to Bristol Science Film Festival until 30th June 2019!
