XIV International Science Film Festival The World of Knowledge


On November 1-5, St. Petersburg will host the XIV International Science Film Festival The World of Knowledge.

This year’s topic is artificial intelligence. The special program is dedicated to the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements declared by the UN General Assembly. 

The festival’s program includes 17 exciting popular science and documentary movies from different countries: USA, Denmark, France, Germany, Spain, Norway, Russia, and others. Traditionally, the projects are not limited to the topic of the festival, and, apart from artificial intelligence, they cover a wide range of problems, from the harmonious coexistence of people and animals, obtaining the human genome sequence, to the life-changing potential of scientific discoveries
