The Wild Indie Sci-Fi and Fantasy Film Festival is a new feature on the UK Short film scene. Hosted at the Greenwich iMAX Odeon Theatre in London, the event will include the Micro 2 minute Sci-Fi Challenge in collaboration with London Short Film. Foundry, the software wizards, have provided a stunning prize and there are a number of awards and prizes for the Mini (2min), Mini (5min), and Short (20min) film categories within the genre. The 2 min Sci-Fi Challenge is a competition to create a 2 min sci-fi themed film for the competition. The event is completely independent of Wild Indie's own productions.
The event is open to all (UK, Worldwide, The Up/Down/Side/Side Dimensions, even the Outer Spiral Arm of the Galaxy). English language films are preferred; other languages may be included with closed captioning. Awards will be for Best film, Best SFX, Best Score, Best Cinematography (see below). We may refund the ticket for the best dressed attendee as well.
The genre is Sci-Fi & Fantasy. So that's anything aliens, weird tech, dragons, superheroes, A.I., manmade monsters, dystopian futures, bizarre pasts, time travel, and just about anything that might fit.
Other genres and elements such as comedy, horror, or romance, can feature as long as a significant portion of the story is the festival themes but because of these themes, we are an adult audience.
