For our 15th Anniversary festival (Oct 14-21), our theme of the year is the Science New Wave, where scientific pursuit is free to co-exist and blend freely across disciplines and cultures. Scientific stories are becoming more personal and hybrid, tackling issues pertaining both to the individual and the world at-large. How are filmmakers, scientists and educators working together to create singular narratives? The boundaries between scientific data and cinema magic are dissolving. Similar to developing organisms, science films are emerging with new traits and new forms. The Science New Wave is born.
