Lights, Camera Science!

Lights. . . Camera. . . SCIENCE! Join us for a night to delight at the Rialto!

It’s a big night on the big screen as we roll out the red carpet for the last time to celebrate the final cohort of the phenomenal science and natural history film students from the University of Otago’s Science Communication programme.

We are excited to kick off this year’s New Zealand International Science Festival by bringing you an extraordinary slate of films that explore stories of science, technology, nature and culture. Take a deep dive into the ethics of wildlife films and artificial intelligence and learn how the magic of extended reality is bringing a marae to the community. We’ll find inspiration in the resilient Māori communities rising to meet the challenges of climate change and travel to the beautiful island of Rēkohu to learn from our Indigenous Moriori who are in the midst of a flourishing cultural renaissance.

Through superb storytelling and stunning cinematography, these films will knock you in the heart, ignite your curiosity and expand your mind. We’ll see you there!

Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
