The BFI Sci-Fi Season Kicks Off In October

The British Film Industry celebrate Science Fiction with a season dedicated to sci-fi film and television.

Thousands of screenings will take place across two hundred multiplex, indie and community screens as the season begins this month in celebration of one of the movie and TV industry’s most vibrant genres. One of the most pleasingly apt events will be a special screening of the 1972 classic Silent Running held within a bio-dome at the Eden Project in Cornwall. Set in a future where all plant-life is extinct on Earth, one crew member fights against the destruction of the planet’s last remaining fauna on-board a ship made up of bio-domes. Far removed from the battle strewn sci-fi more commonly portrayed on-screen Silent Running focusses very much on humanity and dealing with the isolation of space.
