Imagine Science Abu Dhabi 2018
Returning to the Middle East for a fourth year to showcase the best of the global intersection between science, film and the arts.
March 8-10, 2018

Film Festival + Science/Art Exhibition
at the Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi

Festival Theme: HYBRID

Transgenics. Cybernetics. Interdisciplinary cross-pollination. The Imagine Science Film Festival was created in the hybridization of art and science and mixing subjects, genres, and even fact and fiction, is still at the core of all of our interests. And so, this March we return to our omnivorous origins while seeking new recombinatory forms of the future. We're looking for your chimeric docufictional laboratory science fictions, your combinatorial data reenactment ballets, your interspecies cellular diaries, your greatest and most surprising HYBRIDs.
We love films that defy categorization: show us fictional documentaries, dazzling data visualizations, thought-provoking experimental film, and other scientifically leaning, genre-bending creations. Our program will be an international survey of groundbreaking new science filmmaking, with a special emphasis on films from and about the Middle East and North Africa.

Student Film Labs are returning to this year's festival! Read more.
