Sci-Fi Festival selects DP

The 8th Annual London International Festival of Science Fiction and Fantastic Film has selected Digital Projection (DP) to supply Titan 1080p-700 projectors for the event. Digital Projection will supply Titan 1080p-700 projectors to be used for digital screenings of a number of Premier films, along with a range of some notable classic science fiction films.

DP’s international account manager, Bob Harris said: “Digital Projection Limited is very pleased to have been selected to provide Titan projectors for this event, which gives the SCI-FI Film Festival the flexibility and capability to show a multitude of digital acquisition formats on the large screen. The festival promotes and encourages new talent, often with limited budgets and a plethora of production formats, to produce unique content.”

The festival known as SCI-FI- LONDON 8 takes place April 29 to May 4 at the Apollo Piccadilly Circus. This year sees a change to previous years with the edition of a SCI-FI LAB. “We have created the SCI-FI-LONDON LAB as film makers often tell us that sci-fi is tough to make due to a perceived need for special effects or lack of credible stories,” said festival director Louis Savy. The LAB explores alternative ways of telling stories, something with fewer FX shots. Real scientists will be there to talk about the current state of technology, space research, physics breakthroughs and more. The LAB sits amidst a programme of the best Science fiction and fantastic film from around the world.
