Imagine Science Films
is an annual science film festival in New York since 2008 that takes all across the city in diverse venues, including cinemas, universities and museums. The organization also hosts a series of satellite events worldwide, and serves as a major venue for the release of singular and bold works bridging the worlds of science and film. We also seek to challenge and expand the role of science in the current cultural discourse by providing a forum for adventurous interdisciplinary collaboration.
ISF satellite locations have included Abu Dhabi, Singapore, Berlin, Chicago, Dublin, Quito, Bologna, Hong Kong, Athens, San Francisco, Oslo, Warsaw and Geneva.
ISF runs a variety of initiatives including the science-film community Habitat
, Student film labs
, a year round Science Matters
pop-up event series, and the scientist-filmmaker competition Symbiosis
. ISF partners with science film platform Labocine,
which allows audiences beyond our festival cities to view a decade of festival films.
Last year, ISF celebrates its 13th anniversary with the 13th Annual Imagine Science Film Festival
that took place in mid-October in 2020.
