SCI-FI-LONDON is the UK’s leading genre event and an internationally recognised launch pad for genre movies. At each festival we have at least a dozen UK premieres.
The festival is now in its 9th year and will take place Wed 28th April – Mon 3rd May 2010 at The Apollo Piccadilly Circus Cinema, London’s most luxurious cinema.
In the near future, Internet dating sites are a thing of the past thanks to TiMER, a small digital counter implanted on the wrist. It accurately displays the number of days the wearer has until they meet their soulmate, except for Oona O’Leary (Emma Caufield from Buffy), whose TiMER remains blank, while her biological clock keeps on ticking.
After many unsuccessful attempts to capture TiMER-less men and get them to sign up to the programme, she meets Mikey a charming young supermarket clerk and slacker musician whose TiMER already shows four months. Desperate times call for desperate measures and they start a slightly hedonistic relationship. Only TiMER will tell.
This is not your typical SFL movie, but sci-fi doesn’t have to be all doom-and-gloom post-apocalyptic or testosterone-fuelled battles on alien planets. Sometimes you want a date movie with a wider, gentler appeal. After all, geeks need loving too.
