The Science Film Festival presents a wide assortment of films in the following five categories to serve all age groups, but with a focus on content for young audiences:
- Family Edutainment

The Science Film Festival presents 92 films from 24 countries as the international official selection in 2020. Please note the screening selection will vary in participating countries, so please select your country of interest for the local selection.
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, many screenings will only take place virtually or in classrooms. The festival has provided suggested teaching materials for learning activities connected to this year's theme of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in partnership with the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), which complement the films and can be found online on the website.
The award winners of the Science Film Festival 2020 will be announced online in January 2021. The festival bestows awards in six categories. More information can be found in the awards section.
The Goethe-Institut warmly thanks all filmmakers, producers and broadcasters for such overwhelming interest in the Science Film Festival. Through your participation, the festival is able to share the best in international science journalism with thousands of viewers, whose worldview is enriched through these films.
