InScience/Maastricht

InScience International Science Film Festival Nijmegen, is one of the largest science film festivals in Europe. It’s fifth edition takes place from 6 to 10 November in Nijmegen. Last year, we had a blast hosting the first satellite event. This year, we are focusing on GMO of food, the CRISPR technique and scientists challenging Einstein’s theory of gravity.

In close collaboration with Lumière Cinema, we are curating three thought-provoking and beautiful films from this year’s festival selection. Staff members of Maastricht University will introduce the films, and afterwards give a brief response to them and answer your questions.
