Science Film Festival in Indonesien© Groupe de Jour


Every year, a huge amount of scientific films from all around the world reaches the Science Film Festival. Our aim is to show films that communicate science and technology in an approachable and entertaining way to youngsters age 9 to 14 and a broader audience.

Because every country is unique, the Science Film Festival appoints national juries that consist of representatives from science, film and schools in the respective country. They make a careful selection out of all entries and choose the films that guarantee education in science, entertainment and a lot of fun for the audience.
