To celebrate our Ten Year Anniversary at Imagine Science Films, we are adding to our international festival roster a series of pop-up events in New York City, Science Matters. The purpose is to foster active dialogue between scientists and filmmakers year round. Each Science Matters will be structured around a timely theme, coordinated with the release of original film content and a new of issue of Labocine, our publicly available science film archive.

Previous Science Matters participants include Noah Hutton, Emily Driscoll, and Flora Lichtman & Sharon Shattuck. The next will take place Monday, May 1st, and feature neuroscientist Daniela Schiller and filmmaker Liron Unreich presenting and discussing their award-winning film Reconsolidation.
