Egypt 3rd Edition


Goethe–Institut Egypt, the Bibliotheca Alexandrina /Planetarium Science Center and the Academy of Scientific research and Technology present in partnership with Caritas Egypt, Arab Academy of Science and Technology & Maritime Transport, Icealex, WESC, Youthinkgreen, Ro’ya association and many other partners, the Science Film Festival 2017 in its 3rd edition in Egypt.

The festival takes place from the 10th of October to the 4th of December with a selection of 23 movies dedicated to a wide range of important scientific questions about this year’s theme “Welcome to the age of Humans”.

In 2017 the Science Film Festival will be presented in several locations like Planetarium Science Center, Goethe - Institut Partner Schools, Science Clubs, universities and other venues along with screenings in the premises of Goethe-Institut Alexandria and Cairo. On the 3rd and 4th of December we will be having a special celebration inviting more than 1800 students from all over Alexandria at the Festival Hub in Bibliotheca Alexandrina.

The SFF will tour with the Goethe – Institut Library Bus in many locations within the Nile Delta and other Governorates, to reach more and more students in remote rural areas.

Thanks for the cooperation with Caritas Egypt, we are able this year to reach children refugees, children at risk and street children and other unprivileged and marginalized children in Egypt.

Each screening will be accompanied with experiments, activities and discussions to explain and re-enact the scientific phenomena and to open a participatory space for scientific dealing.
