Imagine Science Abu Dhabi Film Festival
Take a closer look at the agenda for Imagine Science Abu Dhabi Film Festival 2017 Discuss this article
The fields of art and science have played a crucial role in furthering significant learning and development across mediums for generations. And bringing the two subjects together right here in the capital is Imagine Science Films.
Over the past nine years, the non-profit organisation has worked tirelessly to promote a beneficial dialogue between filmmakers and scientists. It aims to make the field of science a more approachable and accessible topic to the public, and, for the past three years, the organisation has been hosting the Imagine Science Abu Dhabi Film Festival to help achieve this goal.
This year’s agenda features science-inspired short films and video installations from the region and globally. Plus, interactive panel discussions with top artists, scientists and filmmakers will also be held.
Among numerous other activities and events, we highlight three films worth watching over the weekend.
The Eagle Huntress
This documentary by English filmmaker Otto Bell follows the journey of a 13-year-old Kazakh girl to becoming her family’s first female eagle hunter. The aerial cinematography will leave audiences spellbound.
