#77) Next Week’s IMAGINE SCIENCE FILM FESTIVAL, October 15-22 in NYC, is Going to Rock your Imagination!
October 15th, 2010
A FESTIVAL HITS IT’S STRIDE: The 3rd annual Imagine Science Film Festival is poised to establish it’s unique role in fostering that which is most essential for the doing of science: IMAGINATION.
JUDGING FROM WHAT I JUDGED, I JUDGE THIS TO BE AN AMAZING FESTIVAL!
I was a judge this year, and over the past two weeks the task went from feared tedium to downright exhilaration. There are some excellent, brilliant, amazing, inspiring and wonderful films this year.
The festival is the brainchild of Alexis Gambis, recent Ph.D. recipient in molecular stuff from Rockefeller University who is now attending NYU Film School (let’s hear it for the scientist-turned-filmmakers of the world!).
These films are WILDLY creative. They are not just documentaries where someone took a camera and started randomly filming everything. No, you can tell all of these films come from very, very imaginative minds. Several of them left me in awe. Seriously.
If you’re anywhere close to NYC, you should make time next week to attend some of the screenings. This is a unique, bold, and important film festival. It has a clear voice and vision, which is the desire to identify truly creative artists and give them support. I can’t say enough good things about what Alexis is doing with this festival and hope you’ll all turn out, not just to support it, but to enjoy the AMAZING lineup of films they’ve got for this year!
