The 7th Science Film Festival took place from 15 to 20 November 2021 in Ouagadougou. The film screenings took place in person at the Goethe-Institut, at the Cité universitaire de Kossodo and in 10 high schools and colleges. The festival also showed two additional scientific films made by our partner, the Institut de Recherche pour le Développement (IRD). The festival reached 819 viewers.
The screenings in high schools and colleges were all followed by science experiments. It should also be noted that the Goethe-Institut in collaboration with the IRD launched a call for local scientific short films with a support of 2 500€. The director, Karim Namoano, was the winner with his film which has the working title: Use of Pesticides in Agriculture, the Reprieve. This film is still in production and will be finished in the next few months.
