Science Film Festival


The Science Film Festival reached just under one million visitors in 2016. It is the most extensive science event of its kind and one of the biggest film festivals worldwide in terms of audience.

The award winners in the six categories of the festival are announced here. We congratulate the recipients and thank all filmmakers and producers for their entries and participation.

In 2017, the Science Film Festival takes place internationally in numerous countries in Southeast Asia, India, the Middle East and Africa from October 06 to December 18 and invites visitors to enjoy the best in international science communication and to explore this year’s theme of highlighting the human imprint on the planet, which is so deep and pervasive that scientists and policymakers are considering whether human-caused changes are affecting the geological record over the long term – whether we are, in fact, living in a new geological era called the ANTHROPOCENE.

We look forward to accepting submissions on this and any other science and technology topics through our online application form until March 20, 2017.
