Default UK science fiction/fantasy film talks in London

Thought some of you might be interested in this:,3204,BA.html

A day of talks at BAFTA HQ on the state of Sci-fi filmmaking in the UK. When we talk about big budget science fiction, successes spring instantly to mind, from endless Star Wars reboots to The Hunger Games.

While this seems superficially encouraging for filmmakers with an interest in the genre, in reality, how relevant is it for UK based filmmakers when the average production spend in Britain is 1.2 Million and falling?

With that in mind, its no wonder UK science fiction is relatively scarce. Yet, where there is a will, there is certainly a way. Digital tools have really brought costs down, and films like Moon, Monsters, Exam and the recent 2012 SxSW low budget hit Extracted, have shown us that good story and clever use of resources determine the success of a film, not necessarily budgets.

In this event well quiz key writers, directors, designers, producers and distributors on the essential creative and business questions around getting a good mid-to-low budget sci-fi film off the ground.
It's on 5 May. I've booked my tickets - anyone else coming?
