From the Press Release:

The Philip K. Dick Science Fiction Film Festival returns in full force for its ninth annual season. Events include film screenings, post-film discussions, virtual reality, and screenplay and graphic novel competitions. As a platform for exploring the evolution of science and technology, the festival showcases a variety of themes associated with independent storytelling. Featuring 120 official selections, the festival will be held in-person on Friday, September 17th and Saturday, September 18th, and will stream virtually on Sunday, September 19th. Passes are available at https://www.thephilipkdickfilmfestival.com.

This year’s lineup consists of 6 features, 95 shorts, 16 screenplays, and graphic novel entries, 3 virtual reality demonstrations, and spans 21 countries. The opening night film will be the World Premiere of Noah Mucci’s Lunamancer about a scientist, armed with only his faith and a crowbar, who enters battle with an otherworldly entity for the soul of his sister. Other highlights on September 17th include the short film DAWN directed by Nona Catusanu, Katherine Castro, and Liza Gipsova about a woman living in the waning days of a post-apocalyptic world, and Samuel Krebs’ The Whooper Returns, a feature film that blends horror with costume performance art when estranged siblings must defend their haunted childhood home from a sinister band of cosplayers. Alongside a slate of interactive VR, The Last Starship from renowned producer Eric Haywood is about a group of survivors who must relocate to a new world, and Between Waves from Virginia Abramovich about a woman who searches for her missing lover through parallel dimensions, will both bow on September 18th. Then, Martin Guigui’s The Unhealer will serve as the closing night presentation. The feature follows a bullied teen who exacts revenge against his tormentors by using his powers to reverse any attempted physical harm onto his aggressors. Titles on experimental documentary Origin of the Species by Abigail Child will explore the realities of android development, while Naeri Do’s TRANS about a girl who conducts an electrical baptism to become transhuman, will close out the virtual event.
