SCINEMA International Science Film Festival will take a break in 2024 as it transitions to its new home at CSIRO Publishing.

CSIRO Publishing took over ownership of the science film festival, which was previously operated by the Royal Institution of Australia (RiAus), in association with Cosmos Magazine.

The change was part of a move that also transferred Cosmos Magazine, print and online, and RiAus’ education division to CSIRO Publishing – Australia’s national science agency’s editorially independent publishing business. You can read more about the Cosmos changes in our news story.

As we focus on the transition to CSIRO Publishing, we regret that we are unable to progress with SCINEMA in 2024. 

We thank all those filmmakers and lovers of science film who support SCINEMA each year and we will let you know more about our plans for 2025 as they unfold.
