“We are positively thrilled to have The Arts Council behind us in our quest to bring great Science Fiction and Fantastic Film to the capital. This means that we can now really begin to follow our hearts and develop the programme towards what we hope will become an internationally recognised home for genre film in Ireland. This year we are already seeing a rise in the number of Irish submissions compared to last year, and this trend can only mean good things for the medium in future years. When we started the festival we hoped that it would encourage Irish film makers to express themselves through the medium of science fiction, and we’re delighted to see that this is already happening.”
Now in its programming stage, the Festival is still accepting submissions via Film Freeway. 2018 promises to bring more new and classic Sci-Fi to the big screen, as well as more programmes of international short films to inspire and captivate.
Multi-Passes are now available as a pre-Christmas offer that will provide free entry to all screenings at Generator Hostel for the Early Bird price of €30 (Light House screenings not included).
