From February 19-21, 2015 ISF held its first satellite festival in Abu Dhabi, in collaboration with New York University Abu Dhabi! Imagine Science presented 3 feature films and curated 4 programs of short films, each focusing on key scientific topics in the United Arab Emirates and broader Middle East, through documentary, fiction, cutting-edge data visualization, and experimental film. In addition, we included a special program of student films, an art-science exhibit Experimental Records, and a variety of panels and workshops.
