Presenting new works spanning documentary, fiction, and experimental film, IMAGINE SCIENCE FILMS returns to the Middle East for a third year to showcase the best of the global intersection between science and art. The festival will bring together the most exciting scientific and science-inspired short and feature films, video installations, and much more from the UAE, the Gulf, and beyond, while additional events like panel discussions, Q&As, talks, workshops, and performances with top artists, scientists, and filmmakers expand the conversation and involve our audiences directly.
