Sweet sixteen! When we started our festival we never thought beyond year one, let alone a 16th edition, so firstly, let's thank all those who have supported the festival: the filmmakers, volunteers, distributors, sales agents, producers and sponsors. Of course,there’d be no festival without our fabulous audiences – thanks for letting us share so much great sci-fi with you.
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!
