In Waking Hours at 8th Imagine Science Festival, New York,  16-24 October

19 Oct 2015

The 8th Imagine Science Film Festival takes place October 16 – 24, 2015. The festival theme is “AIR”! Air. Nitrogen, Oxygen, Argon, Carbon Dioxide. The substance that fills our lungs and fills the skies. The medium through which birds and airplanes glide, not to mention sound waves. Easy to overlook, impossible to live without. The 8th Annual Imagine Science Film Festival will focus on air in all its forms and meanings: respiration, aeronautics, the elemental composition of the atmosphere, weather, climate, sublimation, gas properties, the mechanics of sound, and all of the mundane and esoteric ways in which air touches everything in and beyond our world. Each night of the festival moves to a different venue, circulating through the tri-state area with 116 short films and 10 features. We celebrate both scientific merit and visually engaging cinema with awards presented on closing night. This year’s program was curated with a great deal of help from Bennett Glace, Ozge Calafato, and Maya Edelman.
