The sixth Science Film Festival in South Africa organized by the Goethe-Institut and Play Africa reached 610 children and 137 adults through 18 sessions, which included in-person screenings reinforced by hands-on science activities supported by trained facilitators.

Schools that were beneficiaries of the Science Film Festival included: Sakhimfundo Youth Programme, Tshireletso Primary School, African Children’s Feeding Scheme and Community Education (ACFS), Nkanyiso Combined School, Leeds Business school, Johannesburg Girls Preparatory, Hope School, iThemba Foundation, Jewel City and Hope School, a school for learners with physical disabilities. Additionally, Play Africa distributed over 150 play parcels, so children could extend their learning at home.
