Knowledge Through Entertainment
Science Film Festival

Goethe-Institut Philippinen continues its legacy of bringing science edutainment films nationwide as it gears up for another edition of the Science Film Festival this year. The 11th edition of the festival, which will run from 04 Nov to 04 Dec 2020, will be different from the usual as Goethe-Institut takes an innovative step to bring the films to Filipino kids via online streaming.

About the Festival

The Science Film Festival is a celebration of science communication in Southeast Asia, South Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America: In cooperation with local partners it promotes science literacy and facilitates awareness of contemporary scientific, technological and environmental issues through international films with accompanying educational activities. The event has grown considerably since its first edition in 2005, becoming the largest event of its kind worldwide. In the Philippines, we celebrate the 11th anniversary of the Science Film Festival this 2020.

Film Selection

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, screenings will only take place virtually this year. The Philippine selection of the Science Film Festival 2020 has therefore been made available online. A total of 39 Science Edutainment Films divided into different age groups will be available for online screening starting November 04 to December 04, 2020.  

The Philippine pre-jury members with expertise in science education and science communication in the participating countries and in-depth knowledge of the local target audience are closely involved in the selection process. All films are translated and synchronized or subtitled into local languages where necessary to offer access without language barriers.

Science Activities

An essential part of the Science Film Festival is curating activities that supplement the themes explored in the films, through hands-on experiments, projects or learning games offered for young audiences at the screenings. Festival partners from all participating countries exchange and adapt ideas for educational activities, which supplement the films at an international workshop and subsequent national workshops. The Science Film Festival offers an effective and enjoyable learning environment though this multidisciplinary approach.

In this section, facilitators, teachers and parents can find activities that connect to early learners, primary and secondary school films at the annual Science Film Festival. These include learning games, projects and hands-on experiments that can be done before or after visiting the festival to enrich the experience.
