Writing Science Fiction and Fantasy for Film

All three authors have participated in writing or adapting stories for the silver screen, in very different types of projects (Iron Sky, A.I. and Cirkeln). How do their experiences measure with each other? And how do you end up writing for a movie? Can the author get her or his voice heard, or will the movie making apparatus win in the end?

Fandom in Spain & Eurocon Presentation

Cristina Macía, co-organiser of the annual Celsius 233 SFF festival in Avilés, will talk about the culture of publicly funded free festivals in Spain, about regional “tertulias” (local fan group get-togethers), and about the Spanish national SF convention, Hispacon, with Ian Watson butting in, and both will engage in shameless propaganda for the first ever Spanish Eurocon to be held in Barcelona in November 2016.
