The Science Film Festival

hosted by Goethe Institut, is open to submissions until end of March.

The festival presents scientific issues accessibly and entertainingly to a broad audience and demonstrates that science can be fun. It is said to have grown considerably since its first edition in 2005.

There is no submission fee, due to the educational and non-commercial nature of screenings. All films to be screened at the festival are synchronised or subtitled in local languages by the Science Film Festival (SFF) — which also functions as an educational outreach initiative — so that the viewers can enjoy the content.

During the course of the festival, the films are traditionally screened (non-commercially) in museums, schools, universities and other educational venues in participating countries. Submitted films do not need to relate directly to the annual theme.

Those interested can apply online on Goethe Institut’s official website. All films accepted into the annual official selection of the SFF are in competition for six awards bestowed at the festival.
