In its fifth year in Jordan, the Science Film Festival 2017 is realized in partnership with the Children’s Museum Jordan, Abdul Hameed Shoman Foundation and Relief International Jordan. It offers two film programs for both families and school groups, at the premises of the Children’s Museum Jordan and Abdul Hameed Shoman Foundation in Amman and through their mobile projects in Madaba, Jerash, Irbid, Al Karak, Ajloun, and Balqa. In addition, a program will be realized at Relief International Jordan’s social innovation labs in Syrian refugee camps.

The Science Film Festival 2017’s main program runs from October 8th till October 16th at the Children’s Museum Jordan, and from the October 12th till November 9th at Abdul Hameed Shoman Foundation.

It presents an international selection of 10 films dedicated to a wide range of important scientific questions, and focused on the 2017 theme “Anthropocene- Welcome to the Human Age”. Parallel to the film screenings, experiments, hands-on activities, and games are offered to explain and re-enact the scientific correlations.

In addition to the main program, activities will take place at the Syrian refugee camps - Azraq and Zaatari - from October 8th till December 18th at Relief International Jordan’s social innovation labs. These activities are realized in partnership with the Children’s Museum Jordan and include film screenings and interactive science activities for Syrian youth and young adults living in camp settings.
