To showcase science films and filmmakers that challenge mainstream science spanning the topics of scientific injustice, new science, challenging mainstream science, and science conspiracies. SciFlix will employ some of the best scientists working outside the mainstream to act as screeners and judges to all festival films along side film experts to provide a unique critique to all film submissions and winners.
Film festivals today, especially documentary film festivals, do not include scientific injustice in their venues. There are two major reasons for this. One, film festivals are run by those who follow mainstream science blindly and see any challenges as being “crackpot” science. Two, film festivals are afraid to look “foolish” in the public eye if they screen a film that goes against what is considered to be fact in mainstream science. We feel there is a big need in the film festival community to stand up and challenge mainstream science through the eyes of those brave filmmakers who dare to take on today’s science mainstream which lacks the pressure to confront errors, contradictory data, and evidence that requires science to go back to the basics and start anew.
Our Film Festival
The SciFlix Film Festival was founded in 2015 to fill the need for showcasing science films that are not accepted by mainstream film festivals, let alone mainstream science.
Concurrently running with the SciFlix is the annual John Chappell Natural Philosophy Society, a think tank of scientists, professors, engineers, artists, and layman who are on the forefront of scientific theory.
