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.
Alongside our regular film programming (which includes shorts, features, documentaries and world premieres) we shall be featuring a series of talks and debates on genre literature, film and TV. We also expand our ‘Science Fact’ stream with demonstrations, lectures and debate - under the banner SCI-FI-LONDON: LAB
The festival will screen films over 6 days and also have a full daytime programme over the bank holiday weekend, aimed at the whole family. The festival expects around 4500 visitors in April and 1000 in October.
SCI-FI-LONDON once again throws down the gauntlet to filmmakers to produce some challenging short films with our second 48 hour film challenge. In April 2009 we had around 1000 people take part and 49 films completed. Several of these films have been featured at other festivals and screened on the Sci Fi Channel in the UK, USA, Netherlands and Japan.
