Bring SCINEMA To Your Classroom

SCINEMA is the largest science film festival in the southern hemisphere. We are passionate about showcasing the best in science cinema from around the world.

Over 60 films made this year’s official selection to choose from, ranging from experimental animations, shorts, and TV shows, to feature documentaries. But SCINEMA has also made it easy – there is a range of playlists that do the selections for you depending on your mood.

It’s sure to inspire the young, satisfy the curious, explain the baffling and ask the impossible.

Throughout August, you can watch hand-picked playlists of science films specially chosen for use in the classroom.

Films cover a range of STEM topics, with customisable teacher resources for lesson inspiration, classroom activities and thought-provoking questions – and best of all, they’re free!
