The festival is over. Thank you to all who attended and supported. See you in October!
Welcome to the 12th annual festival of all things science fiction. It has been an interesting year since our last edition. More trouble with banks, more cuts, more rhetoric about us ‘all being in it together’ and threats of nuclear missile attacks... here’s hoping that by the time you read this we are not all in a bunker somewhere!
In the midst of the SCI-FI-LONDON film festival, I took some time out of the busy schedule to sit with 3 other journalists in a Robotics Workshop to discuss the 2016 movie Passengers by Morten Tyldum, written by Jon Spaihts.
Thousands of amazing filmmakers across the planet took part in our annual film challenge. We give them the Title of the film, a line of Dialogue, a list of Props and an optional Science theme - they then have 2 days to write, shoot, edit and deliver a 5-minute short film.
Each year we are knocked-out by how good the results are. For full details of the challenge, check our dedicated site. In the meantime, here are the shortlisted films - enjoy!
