Festiwal Filmów Science Fiction imienia Philipa K. Dicka

31.10.2015, Kino Tatry, ul. Sienkiewicza 40, Łódź

O Festiwalu

     Festiwal Filmów Science-Fiction im. Philipa K. Dicka powstał w 2012 roku w Nowym Jorku dzięki zaangażowaniu i ogromnej pracy Dana Abelli - reżysera, producenta i aktora filmów sci-fi. Od tego czasu rokrocznie zdobywamy coraz większą rzeszę fanów, co zaowocowało narodzinami francuskiej edycji Festiwalu w 2014 roku w Lille. W 2015 roku Festiwal zawita do Polski.

     Naszą misją jest promowanie oryginalnych i adaptowanych dzieł reżyserów zainspirowanych dziełami Philipa K. Dicka, Jorge Luis Borges, Italo Calvino, Robert Anton Wilsona, Franza Kafki i innych, którzy eksplorowali granice ludzkiego umysłu, metafizyki otaczającego nas świata i jego przejawów. Promujemy filmy, które przenoszą rozwój kinematografii na nowy poziom kreatywności i oryginalności bez utraty spójności narracyjnej. Na całym świecie szukamy twórców, którzy podejmują wyzwanie zaburzenia widzom koncepcji istniejącego świata poprzez idee i koncepcje niespotykane w konwencjonalnych fabułach.
