CALL FOR ENTRIES 2017 NOW CLOSEDThe Science Film Festival received 200 films from 34 countries. We thank participating filmmakers and producers from around the world for their submissions and interest in the festival. With nearly one million visitors, it is the most extensive science event of its kind and one of the biggest film festivals worldwide in terms of audience.
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.
Over the coming months, over 40 pre-jury members consisting of experts in scientific fields, education, broadcasting and film making, representing all participating festival countries will decide on the official selection of the Science Film Festival 2017.
The official selection and further information on the festival in participating countries are announced on the website in August.
