5th Sud de sciences, the science film festival!

After a preview on November 16, from November 23 to 27, the Sud de sciences festival offers the general public a unique opportunity to see full-length scientific films, followed by discussions with researchers.

The "Sud de sciences" festival in a nutshell

Sud de sciences is part of the very rich and diverse local research scene, reflecting the 6000 researchers in the Montpellier scientific community. The films presented were recently produced and selected by CIRAD, CNRS, INRAE, INSERM and IRD, all based in and around Montpellier. This scientific film festival illustrates a strong shared commitment to strengthening relations between science and society, by offering as many people as possible the opportunity to attend free scientific film screenings, followed by discussions with researchers.

This 5th edition features a rich program based around two categories of films in competition: a professional category and a selection of "Student Films". Each session offers the public the chance to attend the screening of a short film made by students, and a feature-length film from the professional category.

This edition will be held in three towns: Clapiers, Montpellier and Sète. It is part of the Documentary Month program, a national event initiated by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication.
