If you love a little science fiction, live in Sydney and want to support talented local filmmakers then you NEED to be in Parramatta today (Halloween).
The annual SciFi Film Festival (SFFF) kicks off at 10.00am with a dozen-or-so short and medium-length feature movies scripted, filmed and edited by up and coming filmmakers.
Not only that, this year the event will stage an array of Australian and world premieres, that feature stars from all over the Hollywood spectrum.
There’s also the exclusive first look at Gena8 Studios’ Garrison 7 film franchise – starring Mark Dacasos of Stargate Atlantis, Casper Van Dien of Starship Troopers and Marjean Holden of Mortal Kombat.
Plus, Star Trek’s Zachary Quinto and Billy Boyd (Pippin in Lord of the Rings) will appear in short films The Future Perfect and The Alpha Invention.
Festival Director, Tom Papas, said his pick for the day is the amazing short film Clones, featuring Rutger Hauer from Blade Runner as a doctor who wants to copy the brain of a body of a dying scientist into a cloned body.
“We are thrilled to include the short film Closets in our program which contains a social message about LGBT and brings to light the struggles of today’s youth.”
“Plus, Kindred, the very first scifi film to star Indigenous Australians.”
Aside from watching movies, attendees will also be able to visit some exciting exhibits, purchase collectables, take part in cosplay and meet industry professionals.
