From Goethe Institut:

In Vietnam the Goethe-Institut in cooperation with the Vietnamese Partnerorganisation A&C presents from 24th October to 15th December the third Science Film Festival with fascinating films, games and activities about nature, environment and new technologies. Since 2005 the Science Film Festival inspires students in South East Asian countries. The festival aims to raise young people’s awareness for current scientific and environmental problems through the media film and television.

This year the SFF focuses on renewable energies and sustainability. Which kind of energy will we use in the future? Facing climate change, which new approaches are there to protect our natural resources and live more sustainably? Which challenges are we facing in the coming decades? The Science Film Festival tackles these and more fundamental questions in a playful way. With this year’s focus topic the festival wants to contribute to the current debate and provide some food for thought for our next generation.

In addition to the Festival Pre-Opening on 24th of October the Goethe-Institut Hanoi for the first time holds a public opening of the Science Film Festival on the 26th of October at 2pm with the Vietnam premier of the award-winning film “Chasing Ice”-How climate change alters our earth: Expedition to the Arctic.

Moreover, activity days with films, games and experiments for the whole family at the Goethe-Institut Hanoi on 27/10, 2-3/11 will complement the events in different schools and universities in 11 provinces of Vietnam such as Hanoi, Thai Binh, Vinh Phuc, Quang Tri, Hue, Da Nang, Hoi An, Dac Lak, Ho Chi Minh und Bac Lieu
In the framework of the Science Film Festival the Goethe-Institut will also present the film “Mekong” about the impact of water power plants on the lives of inhabitants in the Mekong area in Vietnam.
