Science Film Festival


The Science Film Festival Call for Entries 2018 is now closed and selections are ongoing in all participating countries. The festival received a record breaking 278 films from 24 countries this year. We thank all filmmakers and producers for their entries and participation. The official selection will be announced in August.

The festival reached over one million visitors for the first time in 2017 and continues to be the largest event of its kind worldwide. In 2018, the event takes place internationally in over 20 countries in Southeast Asia, South Asia, the Middle East and Africa from October 01 to December 23.

The Science Film Festival invites visitors to enjoy the best in international science communication and to explore this year’s theme of THE FOOD REVOLUTION. When we think about threats to the environment, we tend to picture cars and sprawling cities, not the food on our tables. But the truth is our need for food and meeting the demands of a fast growing global population poses one of the biggest dangers to the planet.
