The Philippines

12th Edition
The Goethe-Institut Philippines presented the 12th edition of the Science Film Festival in the Philippines last November 03 to December 03, 2021 via online streaming.  With over 7 000 people who registered for the virtual festival, the festival received over 14 000 views throughout the month-long festival.

During the festival, a Vote & Win Poll was again conducted online for the viewers to pick their favorite film from the total of 35 Science Edutainment Films in the Philippines film selection. The Filipino short film “Move Forward” topped the poll, followed by the Filipino short film animation “Spirited”. The other top films in order were “Anthropocene - The Rise of Humans: Water”, “Anthropocene - The Rise of Humans: Earth”, and “Corona - The Pandemic Pangolin”.

The Science Film Festival Philippines is made possible through the gracious support of our major partners from the Department of Education (DepEd) and the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), and our other local partners from Museo ng Muntinlupa, The Mind Museum, Museo Pambata, Philippine Science Centrum, Felta Multimedia, National Library of the Philippines, Liceo de Cagayan University, and Xavier University.
