Presenting new works spanning documentary, fiction, and experimental film, Imagine Science Films showcases the best of the global intersection between science and art.

The festival will bring together the most exciting scientific and science-inspired short and feature films, video installations, and much more from the UAE, the MENA region, and beyond, while additional events like panel discussions, Q&As, talks, workshops, and performances with top artists, scientists, and filmmakers expand the conversation directly with the audience. Imagine Science Films will lead up to the festival by promoting film and science throughout the region through talks, collaborations, and outreach.

The film festival will be accompanied by an exhibition at the NYU Abu Dhabi Project Space spotlighting cutting edge Sci-Art.
