WELCOME TO SCI-FI-LONDON 2012


Louis Savy Festival Director


Welcome to the 11th annual festival,


and what a time to be in London; the Olympics, the Diamond Jubilee and the best science fiction films from across the globe!


In true SFL spirit we are celebrating the biggest sporting event on the planet with our SCI-FI-LONDON Costume Parade on Sun 29th April… of course, we had to add our own twist, so we have two former Olympians as pacesetters for the march. Sad to say they are the walking dead – just don’t ask them where they got the torch they are carrying, or whose arm it is attached to!


In these financially difficult times, with everyone having to tighten their purse strings, we have done our little bit and reduced ticket prices, so you can see more movies – these are the kind of cuts we like!


Film highlights are tough to pick as we have such a strong programme but I am delighted that we have been chosen to host seven world premieres and I am looking forward to joining you for TRUE LOVE and GHOSTS WITH SHIT JOBS! And, in support of home- grown talent, our opening night movie is a wonderful dark comedy by Martin Gooch entitled DEATH – a very English affair indeed!


Often I bemoan the lack of sci-fi film made in the UK and am sometimes told by filmmakers that it is down to lack of budget. So, along with BAFTA, we have brought together some great directors, producers and commissioners to talk about the state of the genre in the UK and get those projects green-lit.


And finally, no intro to a festival would be complete without my personal thanks to all those who have helped get us here. You know who you are and I am in your debt!
