In 2020, the Science Film Festival reached 800,000 viewers in 27 countries in Southeast Asia, South Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, many screenings were held virtually with more than 200,000 online views.
In 2021, the Science Film Festival 2021 takes place internationally from October 01 to December 20 and invites viewers to enjoy the best in international science communication. In the context and aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, health and mental well-being are more important than ever. That is why bringing these issues out into the open especially at this time is so important and why the Science Film Festival turns its focus on health and mental health this year.
