SCINEMA is the largest science film festival in the southern hemisphere. We are passionate about showcasing the best in science cinema from around the world.


SCINEMA is a celebration of the power of the moving image to inspire the young, satisfy the curious, explain the baffling and ask the impossible.


SCINEMA 2021 was a smash hit and our biggest festival to date – throughout August, people hosted at home and community screenings to an audience of over 125,000!
