UNESCO, in cooperation with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport of Cambodia, the Goethe Institute, and the Khmer Youth and Social Development (KYSD), will organize the Science Film Festival 2013 from 1st to 20th November.

The Science Film Festival will be held in Phnom Penh, Kompong Thom and Kampot in November 2013, presenting 11 films by Asian and European filmmakers.  Under the theme “Sustainable Energy,” this Festival will give us the opportunity to learn more about environmental issues and the importance of developing alternative energy sources as a crucial aspect to adapt to and mitigate the negative impacts derived from Climate Change.   The films are all dubbed in Khmer.

The Festival will have special screenings at the Khmer Youth and Social Development (KYSD) office, on the 3, 10 and 17 November during two sessions: 9-11 am and 3-5 pm.  There will be also screenings at the Metahouse.
