SCINEMA is the largest science film festival in the southern hemisphere showcasing the best in science cinema from around the world. SCINEMA is a celebration of the power of the moving image to inspire the young, satisfy the curious, explain the baffling and ask the impossible.

Host your own Community Screening this August during National Science Week.
So whether it’s at your school, library, in your local pub or even in your lounge room; private or public event, you can host your own event. All you need is a screen, computer, access to the internet and an audience (popcorn optional).
In 2017 schools, colleges, community groups, universities and libraries from Applecross to Waikiki, and Perth to Launceston, including Christmas Island and Federation Square in Melbourne got involved in our SCINEMA Community Program as part of National Science Week in August.


A selection of winning entries will be made available later this year for the SCINEMA Community Program. Sign up to SCINEMA News to stay up to date.


SCINEMA Community Program is part of National Science Week 2018.
