Polytech 360 Fest to Bridge Science and Film

The eighth installment of the Polytech 360 International Science and Technology Festival will run in Moscow from November 22 through December 2.

Curated by the Polytechnic Museum together with the Beat Film Festival crew, the festival features a program of documentaries, lectures and discussions on scientific discoveries and the future. This year the program is focused on optimistic and pessimistic views of technologies shaping our lives. An integral part of the festival is its discussion program: the issues raised in the festival's films will be discussed by leading scientists, experts, and popularizers of science.

Among the highly anticipated events of the festival are a lecture and a workshop by Joe Davis, a research affiliate in the Department of Biology at MIT and founder of bio art.
