The 14th edition of the Science Film Festival will take place at the Goethe Institute in Cairo on Friday.

The event is being organised by the German institute and local NGO Youthinkgreen, and this year the films fall under the theme of “the food revolution”.

The festival aims to provide a platform where science can thrive in a fun and educational way, and to give audiences a better understanding of serious issues in the context of entertainment.

Three short films will be screened tackling different subjects: the first on biodiversity, the second on zebrafish and their potential medical benefits, and the third on deforestation and finding ways to counter growing urban spaces in the face of nature.

Entrance is free but online registration is required.

Youthinkgreen is an NGO working to empower youth by coming up with sustainable solutions to local environmental problems.

26 October at 6pm
Goethe Institute, 17 Hussein Wassef St., Dokki, Giza
