About Science Film Festival

The Science Film Festival brings science to the screen: entertaining, creative, exciting - and always enriching. The festival, a celebration of science communication, aims to make science accessible to everyone. Each screening will be followed by discussions and an activity relevant to the theme of the film.

This year’s theme is 'Humboldt and the Web of Life'. Alexander von Humboldt revolutionized the conception of nature by scientifically approaching it as an interconnected living web - and in doing so, inspired countless scientists, environmentalists, writers and artists alike. Celebrating Humboldt's 250th birth anniversary this year, the selection of films deal with environmental issues, climate change and sustainability.
