feature: atlanta’s first ever sci-fi film and art festival is almost near (oct 31st)

October 6, 2015

Check out the teaser video for Atlanta’s first Sci-fi film and art festival, taking place Sat Oct 31st 2015 1-7 at the Fulton County Aviation Community Cultural Center. The one day boutique festival will feature “compelling Sci-fi influenced Art and Prop/ Replicas from some of the best visual artists, both locally and internationally”, states its organizers – the Multicultural Sci-fi Organization (MCSFO). The organizers say: “The mission of our annual Atlanta sci-fi (SF) film festival is to provide screens for the finest independent SF films locally and internationally. To increase cultural diversity and interest in SF film/tv, to inspire and strengthen the local SF film community by cultivating an engaged audience. Creating independent SF films are becoming less intimidating with today’s technology, creating a fertile ground for nurturing new talent and exploring concepts mainstream studios would never support. The goal for our first “teaser” festival is to bring awareness to the Multicultural Sci-fi Organizations mission and be a catalyst for a full size festival next year!”. The festival is free but you must register for a ticket.
