Preview: Sci-Fi London Film Festival 2015

by Mark Allen


What does the future (or perhaps, an alternate reality) hold for us? Well, if you live in London and have some free time over the next week and a half, then “science fiction movies” would be a pretty good bet.

Running from Friday 29th May – Sunday 7th June, the 14th annual Sci-Fi London Film Festival is back and bigger than ever, bringing rabid fans of speculative fiction, incisive cultural metaphor and kickass killer robots everything they could need. The festival will be playing underground classics like the punk Terminator take-off Hardware (pictured below) and fresh-off-the-motherboard flicks like found footage thriller Man Vsand the long-awaited (un)making-of documentary The Death of ‘Superman Lives’: What Happened?, both of which will be making their UK premieres (the latter will be opening the film and is already sold out – sorry!).


There is also a host of other mouth-watering events happening over the week to attend for those who may want something a little different to sitting in dark rooms for nine full days. There are short film screenings on offer, film production workshops and even a future tech-themed dog show, aptly entitled Sci-Fido. Something for everyone, then.

Your faithful reviewer will be on hand to catch as many films as (post-)humanly possible during the week, so don’t worry if you can’t make it as we’ll fill in the blanks and let you know what new films are worth getting excited for this year. If you can make it, great! Head on over to the festival’s website to check out the full programme and grab your tickets before they all sell out.

I’ll see you when I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe…

Sci-Fi London will run from 29th May – 7th June.
