InScience Film Festival

Theme: Nature is Calling

The rich festival program of InScience includes 59 films, of which no fewer than 36 are being shown in the Netherlands for the first time. Trouble with choosing which films you want to watch? No worries, we will help you to get started by presenting various thematic program sections.

With the Nature is Calling section we present the most beautiful films about nature and science. Such as A Year in a Field: a silent cry about the climate crisis and a penetrating musing on what life is. A film full of ideas that resonate deeply, told as a penetrating dream that shakes you awake.

Or Metamorphosis, by the Dutch filmmaker and media artist Pim Zwier, who delves into the life and work of the German artist Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) with this fascinating film – in a mix of nature documentary, costume drama and art project in which 17th-century drawings and paintings come to life in a unique way.

In Wolf Country focuses on the return of the wolf in Western Europe. We follow scientists, conservationists and sheep herders, who keep a close eye on the wolf for various reasons. We see them at work in the field and laboratories, and experience how they get involved in the public debate about the wolf – which is unfortunately devoid of factual and testable knowledge.
