Imagine Science Film Festival
The Imagine Science Film Festival was founded by scientists as a showcase for compelling narratives that present accurate science. The festival, now in its fourth year, aims to transform the way science is portrayed in mainstream media while emphasizing the importance of storytelling, narrative structure, and visual communication.
The themes of this year’s festival—which takes place in multiple venues throughout the city—include aging, immortality, and space, with evenings devoted to avant-garde science shorts, documentaries, footage from actual lab experiments, discussions about humanizing science through its depiction in film, and an afternoon of child-friendly science-based films. The opening weekend is presented at Moving Image; for more information, visit Imagine Science Films at imaginesciencefilms.com.
Tickets: $15 per film / $10 Museum members / Free for Silver Screen and above. Tickets include admission to the Museum galleries.
