Scientific Fiction
March 2017

Science fiction promises much -- endless possibilities for thought and invention at the furthest edges of our imaginations. And while many wonderful science fictions do just that, the genre is also all too often reduced to a vehicle for special effects and pyrotechnics. And so, we propose "Scientific Fiction", a genre that aims broadly to inspire and provoke reflection on the scientific world and the edges of knowledge. These films may furnish robots and space shuttles, and plots as impressive as anything in traditional sci-fi, but they also probe into deeper regions of interrogation into our world, ourselves, and our future. Sometimes the stories suggested by facts can be stranger than the wildest fiction.
