Science Film Festival to begin in Vietnam this October

(VNF) - The Science Film Festival 2017 will showcase film screenings, experiments and educational games for children, starting on October 7th.

The seventh edition is organised in Vietnam by Goethe-Institute in collaboration with THD Education Solution Ltd. Here, the audience will get to watch science and natural history films and participate in discovery workshops and experiments.

From October to December, the Science Film Festival will come to schools and cultural centers. Kids and Youth can experience science with hands and eyes and do experiments on the spot. Films and experiments will be the medium through which curiosity and the desire to explore are encouraged and our knowledge of today’s world is expanded.

The main theme of this year’s Science Film Festival is the “Anthropocene”. The term refers to the fact that for thousands of years, humans have made their impact on nature, and have changed nature. Today, we experience Anthropocene through climate change. Our world with plants and animals is facing a crisis. A selection of 17 movies not only reflects on these problems but also shows us the beauty and vulnerability of the ecosystems on our Earth.

In this episode of Checker Tobi – The Robot Check, the audience learns a lot about robot technology – and also whether a machine can develop and show feelings.

In this episode of the Japanese animation series, Rantaro, Kirimaru and Shinbei are the "Ninjaboys" – they learn at the Ninja school to become first class ninjas. Together they experience exciting space adventures.

The films will be synchronised in Vietnamese. Aside from screenings for adolescents and children, there will also be games and experiments, which deepen the process of learning and understanding. Last year, 36.000 viewers attended 300 screenings in Vietnam.

Tickets to the opening ceremony of the festival at Kim Dong Theater (19 Hang Bai Street, Hanoi) are distributed from 9.30 am – 12 pm and 1 – 5 pm, Monday (October 2nd) at Goethe Institut, 56-58 Nguyen Thai Hoc Street, Hanoi. Each person can only receive 02 pairs of tickets at maximum.

The event has grown steadily since its first edition in 2005, becoming the largest event of its kind worldwide with nearly one million visitors. This year’s Festival takes place in 23 countries from October 6th to December 18th.

The Science Film Festival is an initiative of Goethe-Institute to promote science education and creative learning in Vietnam./.
