SCI-FI-LONDON Film Festival

Our London-based annual international film festival enjoys an unrivaled reputation as a launchpad for genre film, a credible forum for industry events and networking, and a stimulating, inclusive environment for audiences. Insider, outsider, all are welcome at the friendliest festival in town.

Always keen to challenge stereotypes and push the definition of what ‘sci-fi‘ means, we have a reputation for programming a variety of exciting and independent films whilst remaining fun and inclusive.

The festival brings together the best science fiction and fantastic film from around the world. Our artistic programme includes international featuresdocumentariesshort filmsanimation and filmmaking events and a host of related industry workshops and networking events combine the best of ‘science’ and ‘fiction’. We celebrate the shared experience of cinema in our all-nighter programmes and have plain old fun with our costume parades, and pub quiz.
