Festival start: 04 March 2021      Festival end: 07 March 2021

To promote visionary sci-fi, the kind you see in the works of Philip K Dick, Ray Bradbury, Heinlein, Ursula Le Guin, Jorge Luis Borges, Sam Delany, or the cinematic visions of Stanley Kubrick, Darren Aranofsky, Ridley Scott and other great directors

We are looking for dark, moody, strange, cerebral, off the beaten path independent sci-fi one that provokes and engages our sense of awe and curiosity. Other themes include magical realism, cult, strange, the supernatural and the eerie. We look at visionary experiences, psychedelic breakthroughs, DMT, explore Terence Mckenna, William Boroughs, and J.G. Ballard. This is about pushing the realm of science fiction to all whole new reality.

We look at films that push the cinematic form to new levels of expression. Experimental ...great.. avant guard
great...Lets reinvent the sci -fi genre.

In a nutshell we are looking for good sci fi films with good stories.

2. To promote the role of science in the culture through our
Science in Action documentary category. Biopics, reenactments, are all welcomed in our documentary section. Nanotech, Biotech, Singularity projects, all themes that restore our sense of wonder.

3 To reach out to communities that have been traditionally underrepresented in science fiction, African American, Latino. Asian and other people of color.

We look for original voices and visions in works submitted. Lastly, this is a festival by filmmakers for filmmakers.

If you feel like an outsider in the world, you will fit right in in our festival.

Awards will be given either cash, equipment rental or other products

We require a screener or an online private video of the project for screening. For exhibition copy we will need BLUE RAYS, OR a MPEG 4 MOV H264 FILE.


DO NOT SEND PRESS PACKS, PHOTOS, TESTIMONIALS OR ANYTHING ELSE WITH YOUR SUBMISSION - it is a waste of paper and post. If we accept your film we will ask for the other things we need. Better still, make sure you upload a full press kit and trailer to your listing.

So, process is this - our selection team view the film, if we like it...it's in!

All features we screen will be preceded by a short film selected by us - no exceptions. We believe strongly in a short & feature program for our audience.

You give us the right to use the name of the film, the images submitted and any logos for the uses listed.Films selected will only be used at the Philip K.
