Pariscience Science Film Festival is the unmissable meeting point for science and cinema lovers. For its 11th edition, the festival will take place, from October 1 to 6, at the Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle and at the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris.

Every year, Pariscience presents an international programming (fiction, documentary, feature, short movie) about the various scientific disciplines and their impact on society. The screenings are followed by debates with the teams behind the films (directors, writers, producers) and science experts. These screenings allow scientific issues to be explored and discussed in an educational, interesting and engaging way in an informal setting.

Few weeks before the COP21 and taking into account the global warning's importance, the festival presents a selection of unreleased films followed by debates.

Be the first ones to discover "Ice and Sky", a new film by Luc Jacquet. 1957: Claude Lorius replied to an ad, and left with two fellow travelers for a one-year wintering journey in the Antarctic, with no possible return or support. This first expedition in the Far South was to lay the foundations of his entire life…

As part of the Arte session, the Pariscience festival offers a preview of the film that will be broadcast on the Franco-German channel a few days before the COP 21. Get a preview of "Climat, pour quelques degrès de moins" by Alexis Barbier Bouvet, Thierry Robert et Elena Sender. This documentary, which want to be resolutely positive, is based on the reflections of Jeffrey Sachs, a brilliant American economist and a team of five scientists. They would like to demonstrate that a better world is still possible and that science is able to reduce CO2 emissions of two degrees.

The costumary debate on science and society will focus on climate change. Spectators are invited to discover the unseen's film "Climat : portraits d'une France qui change" by Blandine Josselin. If signs of climate change are still relatively discreet in France, they are indisputable and will go accelerating. Throughout the 21th century, France will have to adapt but will it preserve its identity?

Discover a lot of anothers films like "Shale Gas" by Hervé Nisic and Pierre Stoeber or "Nuclear Lands" by Kenichi Watanabe. Discover in exclusivity the new film of Peter Webber ("Hannibal Lecter", "Girl with the Pearl Earring"), "10 Billion". Ten Billion is a film about us. It's a film about you, your children, your parents, your friends. It's about every one of us. It's about our failure: failure as individuals, the failure of business, and the failure of our politicians. It is about an unprecedented planetary emergency.
