BENEFITING: IMAGINE SCIENCE FILMS
EVENT DATE: Oct 16, 2015
The festival theme is “AIR”
Each year, the festival circulates through a variety of venues, including theaters, museums, and universities throughout New York, Brooklyn, and Queens: Google NY, the Museum of the Moving Image, New School, Anthology Film Archive, BRIC Arts, Rockefeller University, Morbid Anatomy Museum and the Made in NY Media Center.
Air. Nitrogen, Oxygen, Argon, Carbon Dioxide. What fills our lungs and fills the skies. The medium through which birds and airplanes glide, not to mention sound waves. Easy to overlook, impossible to live without. The 8th Annual Imagine Science Film Festival will focus on air in all its forms and meanings: respiration, aeronautics, the elemental composition of the atmosphere, weather, climate, sublimation, gas properties, the mechanics of sound, and all of the mundane and esoteric ways in which air touches everything in and beyond our world.
Though this subject is the special focus of this year’s festival, we’ll also be accepting films on the full spectrum of other scientific subjects, as always.
