The International Contemporary Science Film Festival 360° is one of the key educational projects of Polytechnic Museum. Over the years, it established itself as a major event in the field of documentary films.
The main objective of the Festival is to introduce the public to urgent and compelling documentary films about science, technology and new ideas about the world and society. The mission of the Festival is to interest people in science and reach the broadest possible audience by promoting films and discussions, lectures, literature and art.
In 2015, the Festival renews its concept. For the first time it covers not only science but also technology: from drones and robots to the Internet and gadgets. An important addition to the program is keynote speakers — visionaries of science and technology. They will talk about their current works and the future of humanity. The Festival will also host popular science debates, which are supposed to broaden and deepen the understanding of issues raised in the films.
