The event has grown considerably since its first edition in 2005, becoming the largest event of its kind worldwide with more than 1 million participants.

COVID-19 has destabilized the global economy and upended the lives of billions of people around the globe. That is why the Science Film Festival turns its focus on health and mental health in 2021.

The Science Film Festival is held annually by the Goethe-Institut in Hanoi. The festival presents scientific issues accessibly and entertainingly to a broad audience and demonstrates that science can be fun./.
