The 9th London International Festival of Science-Fiction and Fantastical Film will hold dominion over your puny Earth capital from the April 28 to May 3, bringing with it a stellar cargo of big-name releases, low-budget gems, futurist rom-coms, crazed all-nighters and Belgian Vampire Cowboys. With an intergalactic Bollywood musical with digital effects courtesy of Peter Jacksonâ€™s Weta SFX house thrown in for good measure.
Taking the general theme of â€˜Life in 2050â€™, the festival aims to give us a feel of how we will be living over the next forty years and, just maybe, the kind of problems that weâ€™ll face as a species in even holding on for that long should the rate of technological advance keep red-lining at the exponential rate weâ€™re already experiencing.
With an art show, panels, talks, workshops and screenings, the festival has a little something for everyone.
Full details for each movie can be found on the festivalâ€™s website www.sci-fi-london.com
