The Science Film Festival is a significant celebration of science communication spanning South-east Asia, South Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America. In collaboration with local partners, this festival aims to enhance science literacy and raise awareness about contemporary scientific, technological, and environmental issues through international films complemented by educational activities.

This event is open to everyone, from families and students to science enthusiasts and environmental advocates. Whether you are passionate about science or simply curious about the world around you, the Science Film Festival Family Day offers a unique platform to explore, learn, and engage.

“In the 2023 edition, the theme is a rallying call for the protection and revival of ecosystems all around the world, which supports the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, emphasising the importance of restoring our natural habitats for a sustainable future. Join us on this remarkable day of discovery and enlightenment to celebrate the wonders of science, raise awareness about climate change, and work towards a greener, more sustainable future for all,” said Carolin Christgau, Head of Culture & Development at the Goethe-Institut.
