This year, Imagine Science Film Festival’s theme is “Light” and will take place at multiple venues around New York City from Oct 14-21. We invite you to explore stories of photons and photography, optics and the occipital lobe, solar energy and solar flares, shadows and hallucinations and color perception. Join us in traveling at light speed, seeing in infra-red, experimenting with optigenetics, and exploring all of the ways that light is essential to cinema, science, and our very existence.
