InScience Film Festival

Friends with Benefits

Support InScience and become Friends with Benefits! During InScience, top international scientists, filmmakers, and the public meet to share the latest insights that will shape the world of tomorrow. To maintain and grow this meeting place, we need the support of our Friends with Benefits.

Who are you?

You are, like us, someone who believes that science is for everyone. You believe in the power of film, reflection, and dialogue and using them to move society. As a Friend with Benefits, you ensure for only € 36 a year that we can celebrate the best science films, facilitate the stage for reflection and debate, and stimulate students with film education. If you are a student or employee of HAN or RU, you only pay € 18 for the first year.

What are the Benefits?

As our friend, you enjoy Benefits! Among which:

  • Access to the presale
  • Always a discount on our film tickets
  • An invitation to the special Friends with Benefits screening during the festival. You can bring one of your friends for free.
  • The festival bag with a personal festival pass. With this pass, you can buy discounted film tickets at the LUX box office. You can pick up your bag at the guest desk during the festival
  • The Friends with Benefits newsletter through which you will be the first to be informed about the film program, our annual campaign, and of course the presales
