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

In 2018, the Science Film Festival received nearly 300 films and over 30 local science education and communication professionals in the participating festival countries have chosen 93 films from 23 countries that make up the official selection of the Science Film Festival 2018.
Over 30 pre-jury members with expertise in science education and science communication in the participating country 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.
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.
