From Goethe Institut:

The Science Film Festival is a celebration of science communication in Southeast Asia, South Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America: In cooperation with local partners it promotes science literacy and facilitates awareness of contemporary scientific, technological and environmental issues through international films with accompanying educational activities. The event has grown considerably since its first edition in 2005, becoming the largest event of its kind worldwide.

The Science Film Festival enters its 11th year in Vietnam. With this year’s theme “Better Understanding for Better Health”, the Science Film Festival listened to the concerns of the public and filmmakers as well as is updated with current Situations of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.

The world is facing a global health crisis unlike any other – COVID-19 has destabilized the global economy and upended the lives of billions of people around the globe. In the context and aftermath of the pandemic, health and mental well-being are more important than ever. That is why bringing these issues out into the open especially at this time is so important and why the Science Film Festival turns its focus on health and mental health in 2021.

Since the health and safety of our viewers is of paramount importance to us, many screenings will only take place virtually this year. The selection of the Science Film Festival 2021 has therefore been made available online as video-on-demand service.

The science film festival combines a fascination for scientific discoveries with experimentation. The program is aimed at teachers, students and parents.

Film entertainment and learning through discovery make the Science Film Festival a useful educational experience. The film and experiments are designed in such a way that they can be easily recreated at home. Teaching materials give teachers inspiration for their own lessons. The science film festival supports the broad efforts in Vietnam to place science teaching in a new context of STEM teaching.

With a record number of 43 films from 122 films submitted to the Festival, the Goethe-Institut hopes to create an interesting and diverse film program for the audience during the film festival.

With 3 main activities within the framework of the Science Film Festival, young scientists will have the opportunity to:
– Watch free Science movies
– Join the STEM Innovation Contest every month
– Join 10 Workshops organized by STEM teachers and invited guests who are experts in different fields of “Health”

There are many attractive gifts for the winners of the contests which can be an individual or a group of classmates when sending your STEM activity results to us.
