Brooklyn’s Philip K. Dick Science Fiction Film Festival calls for entries
Having kicked off its first year last December with the likes of JUAN OF THE DEAD and our own Chris Alexander’s BLOOD FOR IRINA, Brooklyn’s Philip K. Dick Science Fiction Film Festival is looking ahead to a second, and calling for submissions. Now accepting submissions in science documentaries, science fiction shorts and features and films inspired or adapted from the works of Dick in themes including cyberpunk, dystopian realities, paranoia, altered states and singularity punk, the fest is planning to expand both its film and panel slate, as well as to multiple venues in Brooklyn and Manhattan over December 4-8, 2013.
Panels will include discussions on psychic children and superconscious, the singularity, trans-humanism, media influence, the science of tomorrow, cryonics, borderland sciences and anomalous aerial phenomena (AAP). Other activities include an extensive graphic novel and comic book section to accompany the film screenings and panels and a 48 hour challenge to pick the best Dick-inspired short adaption. The festival will also host a series of independent science fictions screenings throughout the summer and fall.
