Lawrence Krauss is honored at international festival of science documentary films
Date:4/21/2014

TEMPE, Ariz.Arizona State University Professor Lawrence Krauss was honored at the Academia Film Olomouc (AFO), near Prague, for his contributions to public understanding of science and for his work in increasing awareness of science in society. The Academia Film Olomouc award for Outstanding Communication of Science was presented at a special ceremony on April 19, in Olomouc, Czech Republic.

Academia Film Olomouc (AFO) is an international festival of science documentary films, and the largest such festival in Europe, held annually under the patronage of the Palacky University in Olomouc. The festival features science and educational films from the fields of the humanities, natural and social sciences, educational programs of both domestic and foreign television productions and current science, artistic and technological progress.

"It is surprising and humbling to be recognized like this in such a distant, and beautiful country," Krauss said. "It is very heartwarming to feel one's work has had some global impact, but more importantly it vividly demonstrates that science is truly a global human activity, which can be enjoyed across cultures, languages and religions, and provides a universal language that can bring people together.

"This wonderful award emboldens me to continue to reach out, both with my scientific research and my efforts to encourage the use of science and reason to help inspire young people and also guide public policy," he added. "It was also wonderful to see the reaction to our new film, "The Unbelievers," which was screened to a sell-out crowd at the festival."

Krauss is being recognized by AFO "because of his wide involvement in the popularization and communication of science," said Jakub Rlis, program manager for Academia Film Olomouc. "He has devoted a lot of energy to communicating physics and the social importance of science and critical thinking in general." He also was cited for "his work
