Scinema Science Film Festival Opens this Week

A celebration of the quirky and fascinating, this is the largest science film festival in the southern hemisphere.


The largest science-based film festival in the Southern Hemisphere is coming to Adelaide.

SCINEMA is presented by Australia’s Science Channel and supported by major sponsor BBC Earth. This year’s line-up is stunning and powerful.

The SCINEMA International Science Film Festival is an amazing two-hour viewing experience, bringing together the best in science feature, short, documentary, animation and experimental films from filmmakers
around the world.

Works to be shown include:
700 Sharks: Five of the most experienced underwater scientists dive amongst 700 starving sharks.

The Face of a Stranger: After a 2011 hunting accident, Maurice Desjardins thought he’d live forever with half a face. Then a confident young surgeon made an
extraordinary offer. Face of Stranger takes us on a medical journey of epic proportions – where the odds of success are less than ideal.

Vitamania: How safe are the vitamins we seem to be addicted to?

Jeremy the Lefty Snail: The fascinating story of a one-in-a-million snail whose shell coiled to the left rather than to the right.

Scinema screens in Adelaide at Palace Nova Eastend, Event Cinemas Marion and Wallis Cinema Mount Barker from 28th May to the 13th June.

The first screening is at Palace Nova Eastend this Tuesday night, 28th May from 6.30 to 8.30.
