Imagine Science Films is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to promoting a high-level dialogue between scientists and filmmakers. ISF encourages a greater collaboration between scientists who dedicate their lives to studying the world we live in and filmmakers who have the power to interpret and expose this knowledge, ultimately making science accessible and stimulating to a broader audience.
ISF is commited to drawing attention to the sciences, whether it is through art or our community outreach efforts. One of our goals is to provide grants and programs to benefit filmmakers whose work focuses on accurate science and accurate portrayals of scientists, such as the Imagine Science Filmmaker's Fund and The Film Lab, two initiatives which we hope to implement in 2010, depending on community support.
We also aim to promote scientific knowledge among the population not in the sciences, and to encourage those interested in becoming a part of them. In short, if ISF had a six word memoir it would read:
ISF serves science and the community.
Imagine Science Films hosts the annual Imagine Science Film Festival (ISFF), a festival featuring the works of filmmakers who create accurate science-in-fiction films that focus on characters in science- or math-related fields, or that deal with scientific and technological themes. The festival is designed to appeal to people of all backgrounds in a way never before seen, and is open to anyone who wishes to attend.
ISFF promotes science and celebrates the art of film, making science accessible to non-scientists, encouraging interest in the sciences, and merging science and stories of human life in an era in which science and technology are becoming increasingly inseparable from our daily lives.
The 2009 festival will take place from October 15th to 24th. Please visit www.imaginesciencefilms.com for more info and to see how you can help.
