2021... and the Festival Is Getting Bigger. As of "May the 4th (be with you)"... we're open for entries for 2021. News will be added through the year.
The Wild Indie Sci-Fi and Fantasy Film Festival 2020 was hosted at the Greenwich iMAX Odeon Theatre in London, with the event prizes sponsored by Foundry (the DVFX software wizards), and Stan Winston School of Character Arts (the Physical VFX wizards) and included the Micro 2 minute Sci-Fi Challenge in collaboration with London Short Film. Final Draft also offered ticket sponsorships with discounts on software. There were a number of challenges, awards and prizes for Micro (2min), Mini (5min), and Short (20min) film categories within the genre.
