SCI-FI-LONDON launched at the weekend with a Geek Pride parade on the streets on London.

Welcome to the 12th annual festival of all things science fiction. It has been an interesting year since our last edition. More trouble with banks, more cuts, more rhetoric about us ‘all being in it together’ and threats of nuclear missile attacks… here’s hoping that by the time you read this we are not all in a bunker somewhere!

The popular film festival for all Sci Fi fans has arrived once again and kicked off with a Geek Pride parade. People were encouraged to join in the fun with some cool cosplay that included Star Trek, Star Wars Dr Who and lots more.

The actual films start tonight with BYZANTIUM by Neil Jordan and continue till Monday 6th May. The screenings include UK and International premieres  of both live action and animated projects. Also for the hard-core fans out there they have three all nighters on Saturday 4th May. One is an Anime and one is Mystery Science Theater 3000 and one is a Defiance selection that includes Independence Day, Tremors, District 9 and more.

But it is not all about watching films as there are some free workshops from BFI FILM PRODUCTION WORKSHOP to PROPS AND COSTUME ON A BUDGET. So something for everyone.

This years festival looks like the best yet and has really shown it strength it what it does best which is cult, classic and new Sci Fi from around the world.

To find out more go the site HERE and see below for the programme to see the full list of films and events. As you can see there are some real classics in there that should be seen on the big screen.
