Break away from reality when the International Best Sci Fi Film Festival comes to The Palace Danbury.
Sci Fi writers have the ability to transport us to other worlds, alternate realities, while fantasizing about the future. In Science Fiction the possibilities are endless and this festival gives audiences the opportunity to see fantastic short films from across the universe. The festival’s selection team watched over 1000 films and chose the best 7 shorts featuring films from Italy, Israel, Serbia, India, France, United Kingdom, and USA.
In addition to the films we’ll be hosting a pop up gallery featuring the artwork of legendary Illustrator Michael Whelan. This award winning science fiction and fantasy artist has long been recognized for his iconic cover art for authors like Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, and Stephen King, as well as musicians like MeatLoaf and Sepultura.
Michael Whelan was the first living artist inducted to the Science Fiction Hall of Fame, joining such luminaries as Jules Verne, J. K. Rowling, and George Lucas. Among his many awards are 15 Hugos (the Sci Fi Oscar) and 3 World Fantasy Awards.
Boldly go where no man has gone before. This is a fantastic opportunity to see some really cool films and meet legendary sci-fi artist Michael Whelan.
