Words cannot describe how much fun I am having right now dear reader, as I wrap up day 1 of the first annual Other Worlds Austin Science Fiction Film Festival. Bears Fonté, the founder, and crew have already captured my imagination and stand ready to enrich my life through a vast spectrum of science fiction shorts and full length feature films over the next 3 days. The level of creativity and diversity of the festival’s programming continues to astound me as does the interaction with my fellow fans.
The inaugural Other Worlds Austin scifi film festival starts this Thursday, December 4 at the Galaxy Highland Theater. The 3 day event features 11 full length films and a variety of shorts. Not terribly surprising to anyone who regularly follows my writings, I’m covering the festival.
