Dish Life - Call for Collaborators

last modified Feb 21, 2018 04:40 PM

We're looking for game developers, designers, programmers and artists to help us turn our award-winning film Dish Life into a digital mobile game.

The Dish Life film is the product of a collaboration between a sociologist, a stem cell scientist and a filmmaker. It explores scientists' emotional relationships with the cells they grow in vitro. The film has been officially selected and won awards at many international film festivals, including Melbourne Doc Festival, Raw Science (LA), ImagineScience (NYC), and has been featured in the New York Times and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

Our interdisciplinary team of researchers at the University of Cambridge is looking for collaborators to develop our award-winning film Dish Life into an app game. 
In this open call, we are looking for applicants to submit a project pitch by Thursday, 15th February 2018. 

We have an initial start-up fund to develop this project, as well as potentially more funding to come. With the start-up fund, we'd like applicants to produce a GDD and a prototype game that can be demoed at various events and exhibitions around the world.

For more information, download our deck.

To submit a proposal or receive further information, please email The submission deadline is 15 February 2018.

LIFE IN GLASS is a series of cultural experiments that explore the relation between reproductive technologies and the social worlds we live in. Through art, film and creative dialogue, we consider how reproductive technologies come to play an ever larger role in the process of imagining when, how, if, and what we reproduce in our lifetimes.
