Space Brains SciFi Film Festival

The inaugural Space Brains SciFi Film Festival, an international science fiction film festival, will take place during May 2022 in the beautiful coastal town of Mandurah, Western Australia.

The Space Brains SciFi Film Festival is a competition for independent science fiction filmmakers to highlight their films and talents. The festival draws particular focus on the work of regional Western Australian filmmakers to help give them a platform to speak about their projects. As the Space Brains SciFi Film Festival event grows, we aim to present a series of filmmaker panel discussions, science related community activities and celebrate the best science fiction films with a screening and awards gala.

Space Brains SciFi Film Festival defines science fiction as a narrative that contains an investigation into speculative science (e.g. alternate universes, social constructs, versions of reality, versions of human nature, or time travel and new or altered technology). Films submitted to Space Brains SciFi Film Festival must be adhere to this definition.

The festival values creating and bringing together community and celebrating all things science fiction.

The Space Brains SciFi Film Festival will feature on an upcoming episode of the Space Brains Podcast. Submitters will have the opportunity to feature on this podcast.
