InScience Film Festival

InScience ❤ animals

Are you as fond of animals as we are? Then we have the perfect films for you! Because one of the themes that we have woven through the program is We Love Animals. These films are a tribute to scientists who learn from and about animals and thereby try to strengthen the relationship between humans and animals. Because we like to say that we love animals, but do we really show that? And do we really understand the animal world?

700 Sharks

Luc Marescot | Documentary | FR | 92 min | 2018 | tickets

In a groundbreaking experiment in Polynesia, five of the most experienced underwater scientists in the world follow the largest school of sharks ever registered. It took the researchers three years of preparation to descend between seven hundred sharks. Which they do at night, when the sharks are most aggressive. To study the mysterious hunting strategies and social behavior, these researchers risked their lives. The result is a fascinating film in which the sharks display behavior that has never been seen before, let alone been recorded on camera.

Artifishal, a documentary, is a real eye-opener. The drama of the wild salmon takes place against the backdrop of a beautiful setting. While salmon farms were intended to protect the endangered species, they appear to contribute to the extinction of wild salmon. Because the salmon farm weakens the genetic material of the wild species. After Artifishal, salmon will never taste the same again.
