And that’s a wrap on SCINEMA International Science Film Festival 2021.


Thank you to all the filmmakers for their amazing films and to our wonderful and dedicated audience that hosted screenings – at home, in lockdown and in their communities. Thank you to the educators that brought SCINEMA into their classrooms to help their students see science differently.


SCINEMA 2021 was a smash hit and our biggest festival to date – over 125,000 watched the films and continued to make SCINEMA the largest science film festival in the southern hemisphere. We are passionate about showcasing the best in science cinema from around the world.


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