I’m ready for my close-up: The current state of Sci-Fi movies

Alex Fitch interviews Louis Savvy, organiser of Sci-Fi London, the capital’s annual science fiction and fantasy festival about this year’s event. Sci-Fi London is held from the 3rd to the 6th of May and this year features such films as Recon 2022: The Mezzo incident and Plane Dead (a.k.a. Flight of the living dead), documentaries like Future by design and also runs concurrent with Cine-excess, a conference on cult cinema that includes screenings of David Mamet’s Edmond and Gyorgi Palfi’s Taxidermia. Alex and Louis discuss these films, the highlights of last year’s festival and (natch) the current state of sci-fi on the big and small screens.

Originally broadcast 26th April 2007 (mp3 format, 27.3mb)
