Nobel Museum International Film Festival is a forum for discussing highly topical issues! FILM&SCIENCE started in 2010 and is a non-partisan and independent film festival and forum that, through the medium of film, aims to promote awareness of science´s role in society. FILM&SCIENCE want to present the latest developments within research and to encourage us - the audience - to dare to question what we see and the way we live. The films are always introduced to and discussed with the audience by the film's director and/or invited scientists.
Karin Wegsjö, artistic director of FILM&SCIENCE
