Festival Paralelo is a space for reflection that seeks to explore the artistic manifestations that revolve around the theme of Science Fiction and parallel worlds.

Science Fiction invites us to the universe, where an infinity of worlds can coexist, we understand society as a laboratory where it is possible to discover new ways of being and doing. This genre opens the space to see ourselves reflected in ideas that apparently are not part of our reality. We are interested in stories and media that invite us to explore other possibilities to exist and build futures that have a future, as well as stories that take place outside of planet Earth or in parallel universes and alternate realities.

The dream becomes the action. Art, stories, and myths guide our conception of the world and therefore our actions Science fiction and fantasy are the mirrors through which artists from different countries of the world face their concerns, concerns, and points of view on contingencies that the human species has in the face of technological development, explorations of imagined worlds and ways of being, both possible and extraordinary.

In our official selection, the main objective is to make visible the work of new filmmakers, generating a dialogue about what it means to create science fiction works in Colombia and the world.
