From Goethe Institut:

When science fiction turns into science…

The 12th Science Film Festival for children and teenagers is presenting science you can touch and try out. This year, the festival evolves around the topic “Anthropocene”: The term refers to the fact that for thousands of years, humans have made their impact on nature, and have changed nature. Today, we experience Anthropocene through climate change. Our world with plants and animals is facing a crisis. The film program reflects on these problems but also show us the beauty and vulnerability of the ecosystems on our Earth.

A selection of 19 movies from 7 different countries is helping to support the scientific consciousness of young people regardless their age and origin. Last year, there were hundreds of screenings and the festival reached 36.000 people in the whole country – this is an amazing success which underlines the importance of the Science Film Festival and how it contributes to the support of scientific education in Vietnam.
