We’re please to announce that the evaluation of the Space Sound Effects Short Film Festival project has just been published in Geoscience Communication. This paper describes the processes behind of the project and its phases of engaging filmmakers, and later exhibitors and audiences, with the sounds of space.

Overall the results are very positive. The project successfully engaged filmmakers, infiltrated many existing arts events internationally, and attracted diverse non-science audiences provoking varied responses in them. We hope it provides an enlightening view of how this project operated and how its success was measured that will be of interest and use to wide range of people from across the art, science, and engagement sectors.
