Since 2017, the Pariscience festival supported by the Science & Television Association, organizes, in partnership with the Scam, the Scientific Ideas Fair.
This event brings together scientists with research that they think could inspire a film with writers-directors-producers. The objective: to create a spark for documentary creation.
Scientists are invited to summarize their research in writing. After selection, Pariscience compiles the research topics in a catalog, sent to the national network of writers-directors of the Scam and to the network of producers of the AST.
Meetings of about one hour are then organized according to the subjects selected by the writer-directors, by videoconference, during the festival.
Producers, members of the Science & Television Association, advise the scientific participants on the pitching process and the world of documentary film.
