Film-makers challenged to make science compelling

Film-makers and scientists from around the world have gathered at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (Cern) in Switzerland to find new ways of telling interactive stories about science.

The five-day event, organised in conjunction with the Tribeca Film Institute, wanted to make science more accessible, revealing the stories that the public never knew existed or were hidden within data or scientific processes.

Mark Levinson, the director of Particle Fever, speaking at the CineGlobe Film Festival in Geneva, said his film about the discovery of the Higgs boson particle was about scientists, their passion and process.
