The 10th Annual Imagine Science Film Festival
October 14 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm| $20
Produced by Imagine Science Films — the nonprofit behind science film festivals in New York, Paris, Abu Dhabi and satellite events worldwide – Imagine Science Film Festival showcases new and experimental works that bridge the worlds of science and film in an artful, entertaining, and meaningful way.
This year’s festival takes place October 13-20 in New York City, and all of the events are low cost or free. The festival includes short and feature-length films, live cinema performances, discussions, interactive demonstrations and more taking place at museums, universities and cultural institutions across Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. Several of the films will be making their U.S. debuts at the festival.
Notable programming includes:
- World Premiere of Mosaic at The New School (Friday, Oct 13 @ 7pm) – The mixed genre, science-driven anthology film Mosaic explores evolution in its natural and artificial forms — the deliberate and random modifications of an organism. The film is the first of its kind featuring ten visionary, international filmmakers and stories from the most influential scientists of our time.
- U.S. premiere of the film Dusk Chorus – Based on Fragments of Extinction at the Rubin Museum (Friday, Oct 13 @ 9:30 pm) – Join director Alessandro d’Emilia and researcher and eco-acoustic composer David Monacchi, who capture incredibly detailed 3D soundscapes of the Ecuadorian Amazon. Home to one of the highest biodiversities in the world, this area may all too soon fall silent due to habitat loss and other anthropocene effects.
- North American premiere of Honey, Rain and Dust at the American Museum of Natural History (Friday, Oct 20 @ 4 pm) – A unique ethnographic and ecological look into an unseen corner of the Arabian Gulf: beekeeping traditions in the northwestern mountains of the United Arab Emirates.
- (Im)migration & Híbridos at National Sawdust (Saturday, Oct 14 @ 7 pm / 9:30 pm) – A two-part evening featuring Vincent Moon and Priscilla Telmon presenting their live cinema project Híbridos, an experimental ethnographic study of Brazil, mixing tradition and modernity. Preceding Híbridos is (Im)migration, a performance and short film program on the topics of migration and identity.
