Festival 2014

The 7th Annual Imagine Science Film Festival

October 17 – 24, 2014

The 7th Annual Imagine Science Film Festival promises to be an exciting week of films presenting scientific fact in compelling visual narrative. This year, the festival will explore TIME in all its variants: timelapse film, the age of the universe, time travel, geologic time, nanosecond-scale subatomic interactions, the genetics of aging, and much much more.

Opening night at Google NY, we will announce the participants of The 172800 Second Film Competition to take place the first weekend of the festival. In collaboration with Tribeca Film Institute, Nanotronics and The Science & Entertainment Exchange, filmmakers and scientists will team up to create short films about TIME in only two days. The final screening will be hosted at the Made in NY Media Center by IFP Sunday, October 19th.

Spanning venues across New York City and Brooklyn, we are excited to announce our film programs and festival schedule listed below. Tickets will be available mid-September.
