The Science Film Festival received 181 submissions from 46 countries this year. We thank participating filmmakers and broadcasters from around the world for their submissions and interest in the festival. With over 750 000 visitors last year in 16 countries, the event is one of the largest science festivals worldwide.
This year the Science Film Festival takes place internationally from October 01 to December 18 and invites visitors to enjoy the best in international science communication and to explore this year’s theme of MATERIAL SCIENCE – understanding how materials are put together, how they can be used and how they can be changed!
