Imagine Science Film Festival fa12

It aims to transform the way science and scientists are portrayed in mainstream media, while emphasizing the importance of storytelling, narrative structure, and visual communication.

Full day programs will be devoted to avant-garde science bits, documentaries, footage from actual lab experiments, discussion about the meaning of dreams and kid-friendly science-based films.
