The 14th Annual Imagine Science Film Festival will take place from Oct 15-22, 2021
. We're planning a hybrid with most of our films that will be playing via our partnering platform Labocine.com
Imagine Science 2021 will also include over 20 film programs and special events including the Science New Wave
lab event (as part of a gift given by WarnerMedia
, on behalf of AT&T
) and the Symbiosis Closing Night (supported by Science Sandbox
).The festival theme is "RESISTANCE"
We're currently living in a time where resistance seems to be part of our everyday life. The act of swimming against the current but not for futile reasons but to spark change and awareness. For our 14th annual festival, we will be exploring the act of resisting from the micro to the macro level. What does it mean mean to withstand opposing forces that sometimes feel overwhelming? How does resistance measures a materials ability to resist the flow of electrons through it? How do organism resist harmful influences such as disease, toxic agents or infection?
Though this subject is the special focus of this year's festival, we'll be featuring films, installations, and hybrid works of any and all other genres, methodologies, and subjects, as always that push the boundaries of the science narrative and embrace the spirit of the Science New Wave
Over the course of the festivals, six pairs of scientists and filmmakers will also be making films on the theme of RESISTANCE. Interested in participating? More info on competition and how to apply on our Symbiosis page..
