Other Worlds Film Festival announces lineup


The Other Worlds Film Festival has announced its full slate of films.

The seventh annual SciFi festival features more than 40 films, including features, documentaries, and shorts. There’s also special events, conversations and podcasts. Everything is screened virtually Dec. 1–6.

“I think over seven years, this is one of our most ambitious, varied and international programs ever,” said fest founder, Bears Rebecca Fonté. “Although being apart from our fans is a big letdown, going virtual has allowed some ideas we’ve always wanted to try —like a live screenplay reading from a Dan O’Bannon first draft, keynotes at both our opening and closing, and an exclusive performance from Carolina Eyck, the preeminent modern master of the theremin.”

Keynote speakers include Rick Griffith, Afrofuturist graphic designer and founder of The Black Astronaut Research Project (BLARP) and Noël Wells, UT graduate and Star Trek: Lower Decks voice star (Orion Starfleet Ensign D’Vana Tendi).

Badges for the festival are available at two levels and are on sale at otherworldsfilmfest.com/badges. Individual tickets will go on sale Nov. 24.
