Imagination + Technology = Sci Fi
Science fiction is a world where technology, imagination and exploration of the what if? coincide, creating an environment that fosters the maverick spirit both in author, character and viewer. Capturing all of that in a screenplay, arguably the backbone of all great films, to be performed in less than two hours isnt easy, but its a necessary step in taking the potentially world-changing vision and getting it to a captive audience. Join us at CQFF21s Day of the Writer to learn all about the process of sci-fi writing from renowned masters.
