We're committed to communicating science, especially in a time where facts can easily be distorted through media channels causing misunderstandings, fears, and anger in our world. People crave to understand scientific facts and stories around how our cultures and societies are intimately linked to science. We hope it also gives people hope for a better future where priorities are recalibrated and where we can act to stop some of the major issues we’re facing - starting with a vaccine against COVID-19 but also tackling climate change, ecosystems in peril, pollution, and contamination, among other global issues.
We're at turning point where Imagine Science Films is much more than a festival. We're now hosting satellite events, bringing year-long workshops and bringing programming online in these singular times where festival formats are being rethought.
Our goal of $100,000 before the 15th annual ISFF. This contribution will help us with these new initiatives and have a new start in 2021.
Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause ! And long live the Science New Wave .
Imagine Science Films aims to create more synergy between scientists and artists, embracing to the fullest the traits of the Science New Wave (SNW), where scientific pursuit is free to co-exist and blend freely across disciplines and cultures. The SNW is a manifesto, a movement, dogma, a cinematic organism. It celebrates scientific storytelling, exploring the gray zone between science and film. At its core, the SNW believes that scientific pursuit should be free to co-exist and blend freely across disciplines and cultures.
About Imagine Science Films
Founded as a small film series at Rockefeller University in 2008, today Imagine Science Films is a now one of the leading science and film non-profits. We encourage collaboration between scientists, who dedicate their lives to studying the world in which we live, and filmmakers, who interpret and expose this knowledge, together making science accessible and stimulating to the broadest possible audience. Our vision is that the way science is portrayed in the mainstream media will be transformed.
