As part of the Imagine Science Film Festival in New York, October 2011, Science & the City became co-presenters of a panel discussion about humanizing science through its portrayal in film.

The moderator of this panel was "A Planet of Viruses" author Carl Zimmer. On the panel: Sean Carroll, PhD (evolutionary biologist and founder of the Howard Hughes Medical institute's Documentary Institute); David J. Heeger, PhD (neuroscientist who studies the brains under the influence of cinematic stimuli); Darcy Kelley, PhD (biologist at Columbia University); and Valerie Weiss, PhD (scientist and award-winning writer and director, Losing Control).
