The winners of SCINEMA International Film Festival have just been announced, showcasing the world’s most original, creative, and at times, emotionally confronting science stories.

The SCINEMA International Science Film Festival is the largest science film festival in the southern hemisphere. This year, over 1500 documentaries, shorts, animations and films were entered. A judging panel convened to award prizes for Best Doccumentary, Animation, Short and more.

The overall winner of Best Film went to ‘The Kingdom – How Fungi Made Our World’, directed by Annamaria Talas and Simon Nasht. The Australian film tells the untold story of how fungi shape our land – sometimes saving us and sometimes threatening us.

All winning films will be screened at Palace Cinemas across Australia from 31 May – 21 June. For the full list of winning films and for session times, head to Australia’s Science Channel.
