1st Edition
The Goethe-Institut Singapore presented the first edition of the Science Film Festival in 2022. The festival took place from October 1 to December 20 in cooperation with the Science Centre Singapore as part of its STEM festival UNTAME.

The selection jury chose 35 films from 15 countries, targeting children from primary schools upwards for the program in Singapore. The films were subtitled or dubbed into English where necessary to allow accessibility for young audiences and could be watched online via a secure streaming platform. 180 registrations were submitted for access to the online streaming offer with 1 963 online views overall. There were also screenings held at the Science Centre with over 7 700 viewers during the UNTAME festival. On October 29, the opening ceremony took place at the Science Centre Singapore with speakers from partner organizations and 190 participants, as well as 200 viewers at a special Rolls-Royce screening at the end of November.

The Science Film Festival Singapore was made possible through the support of our regional partner Rolls Royce and in association with the SEAMEO Regional Centre for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Education. In reaching over 8 000 viewers in total, the first edition of the event in Singapore can be deemed a great success and shows a popular interest for the initiative.
