Gene Screen BC (GSBC) is a contest to honour short videos that educate, inform and excite the public and healthcare professionals about genetics and human health. The contest opens on March 22, 2010 with a networking event and will culminate in a video festival on September 8, 2010 in Vancouver.
The category for this year’s film is “Health” and is targeted towards those interested in creating short films aimed at educating others about any topic related to clinical genetics. Beside the general topic of genomics & human health, the content is up to you and we encourage you to be creative and develop your own approach. The only requirements are that it be:
- made for educational purposes
- between 3-10 minutes long
- suitable for public display (PG rating)
- does not violate copyright law (all material must be your original work)
The top five films will be shown in an evening showcase on September 8, 2010 in Vancouver.
- 1st place – $3500
