Meet the 2021 Symbiosis Participants !

Our yearly short film Symbiosis competition, presented by Science Sandbox, is happening once again at the 14th Annual Imagine Science Film Festival. Symbiosis will bring together scientists and filmmakers to create a science-inspired short film themed Resistance over the course of one week. Meet our scientists and filmmakers from around the world. They will be paired up on opening night and make films together for one week.

Get ready for microbial surrealism, talking animals, geographic quandaries, cerebral projections and tributes to our mitochondrial lands and oceans.

About the Imagine Science Film Festival

Over more than a decade, Imagine Science Films (ISF) has grown into a major venue for the release of new and experimental works bridging the worlds of science and film.

Founded at Rockefeller University, Imagine Science Films is a 501(c)(3) that produces annual science film festivals in New York, Paris, and Abu Dhabi, and at satellite events worldwide.

Our festival cultivates an appreciation of science through our events, but also serves as an international resource and active network for those who want to communicate the scientific realities of our world to public audiences.
