Promoting science learning through watching and experimenting

Which challenges are we facing now and in the coming decades? What are available and new approaches to help protect our living environment and preserve exhausting natural resources? What practice should we promote in order to make our earth more liveable? Which kind of energy will we use in the future? These questions will be addressed at the Science Film Festival 2013. 


This is an initiative of the Goethe-Institut in cooperation with the Vietnamese Partner organization A&C in Vietnam. 


As the world leading provider of green solutions and technologies, Siemens is proud to be the silver sponsor for this meaningful activity.


Since 2005, the Science Film Festival has inspired students across South East Asian countries. With fascinating films, games and activities about nature, environment and new technologies, the festival aims to raise young people’s awareness for current scientific and environmental problems through the media film and television.


Taking place from 24th October to 15th December, this year’s Science Film Festival focuses on renewable energies and sustainability. 26 movies from 18 countries in the world will be shown at different schools and universities in 11 cities and provinces of Vietnam such as Hanoi, Thai Binh, Vinh Phuc, Quang Tri, Hue, Da Nang, Hoi An, Dac Lak, Ho Chi Minh and Bac Lieu.


The Science Film Festival 2013 commences with the multiple award-winning film: “Chasing Ice – How climate change alters our earth: Expedition to the Arctic”. The film “Mekong” from Vietnam, which reports the impact of water power plants on the lives of inhabitants in the Mekong area in Vietnam, will also be presented on 1st of November followed by a panel discussion.


“Siemens is committed to sustainability. From our point of view, sustainability is about thinking and acting together, as partners. Hence, we are very pleased to cooperate with the Goethe-Institut in the Science Film Festival 2013 in Vietnam. We wish to support the Goethe-Institut in enhancing awareness about sustainability for Vietnamese young generation, as well as in stimulating and nurturing their interest and passion in science through lively and vivid demonstrations and discussions”, said Dr. Pham Thai Lai, Presidents and CEO of Siemens Vietnam.
