The theme of the 14th Imagine Science Film Festival is "RESISTANCE." The festival will take place from Oct 15-22, 2021. 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 online works of any and all other genres, methodologies, and subjects, as always that push the boundaries of the science narrative - embracing the movement 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 at our Symbiosis portal.
