World Science Festival 2013
The exciting, multi-venue World Science Festival returns with a lineup of events throughout the city from May 29 through June 2. Museum of the Moving Image is the venue for the film programs, which include screenings of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation feature films from the 2012 and 2013 Sundance Film Festivals. Each screening is followed by a discussion with the filmmakers and some of the world’s leading scientists—experts in the subjects explored by the films, which deal with the threat to the world’s water supply, and the development of artificial intelligence through computer chess.
These programs are supported by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and its Public Understanding of Science and Technology initiatives.
