It’s here!   We finally have a festival pass, only took 20 years!

For eight days we present a collection of fabulous new science fiction and fantastic film, along with talks, workshops and our in-famous cosplay for dogs; SCI-FIDO.

With so many calling for ‘social distancing’, we want to encourage ‘social cohesion’ so we have introduced our very first ‘proper’ festival passes and hope to see you for the whole event!  Come hang out at our festival where filmmakers and fans alike come together.  SCI-FI-LONDON is an inclusive safe-space, no matter which planet you come from.

For the 2020 festival, we plan on at least 20 screenings, showing both features and shorts, including the Opening Night Film & Reception on 13 May and Closing Night Gala on 20 May.

Our programming team are still hard at work selecting the line-up, but we will have our usual eclectic mix of new SciFi film, smart docs and incredible shorts. We will also be holding a special anniversary screening of HACKERS (1995) with some special guests!

We promise not to sell more passes than we have seats, so get a pass, you have a seat!

We have two types of pass available.


The ELITE PASS guarantees you a seat at all screenings and priority entrance.

ELITE pass-holders will also get some exclusive festival goodies, including a limited-edition festival teeshirt

You also have a seat at the Opening and Closing Night screenings and an invitation to all our parties, including our 48hr Challenge Awards Night!



The HACKER PASS guarantees you a seat at all regular screenings and priority entrance.

This pass gets you into everything except the Opening and Closing Night screenings and does not include an invitation to our parties.

You also get a limited-edition metal badge and a few other festival goodies.



Each day we will also pick two Pass-holders at random and give them free drinks!   So book now!
