About the Imagine Science Film Festival
Over the past decade, Imagine Science Films (ISF) has grown into a major venue for the release of new and experimental works bridging the worlds of science and film.

Founded at Rockefeller University, Imagine Science Films is now a 501(c)(3) that produces annual science film festivals in New York, Paris, and Abu Dhabi, and at satellite events worldwide.

Our festival cultivates an appreciation of science through our events, but also serves as an international resource and active network for those who want to communicate the scientific realities of our world to public audiences.

THE FIRST SCIENCE FILM FESTIVAL FOUNDED AND RUN BY SCIENTISTS
Our mission is to bridge the gap between art and science through film, thereby transforming the way science is communicated to the public and encouraging collaboration across disciplines.

Together, scientists, who dedicate their lives to studying our world, and filmmakers, who interpret and expose this knowledge, can make science accessible and stimulating to the broadest possible audience.
