4S Sydney Art+Science Short Film Program

30 August – 1 September 2018, 2–5pm Powerhouse Museum Book Tickets

In association with our new exhibition, Human non Human, join us for this program of short film screenings.

Art+Science storytelling converge in this program of inventive short films from around the world. Bringing together the factual, the fictional and the fabulated, the selected films explore past and present-day curiosities, wonderful oddities, imaginative scientific practices, and diverse ways of knowing and being.

These screenings are free with general Museum admission.

The 4S Sydney Short Film Program is curated by Juan Francisco Salazar, Associate Professor, Western Sydney University. It will be screened in the Kings Cinema, an art deco cinema in the style of the 1930s located in the Powerhouse Museum. Please note that the Kings Cinema has limited capacity and seats will be taken on a first come, first served basis.

Supported by the Society for Social Studies of Science (4S), Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences and Western Sydney University.
