(VNF) - Children and teenagers across Vietnam have a chance to enjoy short films, experiments and educational games about nature, environmental protection and new technologies at the Science Film Festival 2016 which takes place in Vietnam and 15 other Asian countries from October 1st to December 18th.

This year, the festival evolves around the topic “material science”: How is material such as paper and plastic being produced? Which consequences may the usage of certain material have for the environment? Are there any alternatives to using harmful material? How can the natural production of certain materials like spider silk or wood be used as a model for technical development?

A selection of 14 movies from seven different countries is helping to support the scientific consciousness of young people regardless their age and origin.

The ongoing festival comes to schools in HCMC and other locations in Hanoi, Vinh Phuc, Thai Nguyen, Phu Tho, Thai Binh, Thanh Hoa, Danang, Hue, Quang Tri, Hoi An, Tam Ky, Quang Nam, Daklak, Bac Lieu, Dalat, Soc Trang, Vinh Long and Dong Thap until December 18th.

All children, teenagers and adults are equally invited to join our activity days at Goethe-Institut on November 12th and 13th, where anyone can engage both playfully and experimentally with environmental protection and New Technologies.

Furthermore, there will be a film screening featuring “Lighter than Orange – The Legacy of Dioxin in Vietnam” (November 12th at Goethe-Institut Hanoi) which is a documentary directed by Matthias Leupold who deals with the biography of ten Vietnam War veterans as well as the devastating consequences of the usage of dioxin, a defoliant.

Last year, there were over 300 screenings and the festival reached over 36,200 people in the whole country. According to Goethe Insitut, the organizer, this is an amazing success which underlines the importance of the Science Film Festival and how it contributes to the support of scientific education in Vietnam./.
