The festival

What is InScience?

InScience, International Science Film Festival Nijmegen is one of the biggest science film festivals in Europe and unique in the Netherlands. The program most importantly consists of an overview of the best science films of the year. InScience offers a broad program, with talks, film debates, Q&A’s, meetings, and expositions on the cutting edge of science and art. During InScience, Nijmegen is changed into a meeting place for filmmakers, scientists and the audience for exchanging new insights. You can read more about the festival here.

What does the festival look like this year?

The InScience program will be made available in 3 ways this year:

  1. Film program in LUX
    Between 11 and 15 November, we will screen every film from our program once in the movie theaters. Ticket sales for the physical film program in LUX Nijmegen start on Thursday 22 October.
  2. Online program with films, lectures, panel discussions, and more
    Most films can be seen on the online platform of InScience. The talks that we initially planned in the movie theaters will also be moved to the online platform. You can talk to experts, creatives, and scientists at set times. All movies and talks will remain available through November 22. Ticket sales for the online program start on 11 November.
  3. Film program in 10 other university cities
    In order to limit traveling for visitors as much as possible, we organize ‘best-of’ programs in 10 university cities in the Netherlands. These are our satellite editions. These take place in: Amsterdam, Delft, Eindhoven, Groningen, Maastricht, Rotterdam, Tilburg, Twente, Utrecht, and Wageningen.
