The Scifi Film Festival returns this year, presenting a digital program of the most mind-bending science fiction and fantasy flicks to audiences across Australia from 15-31 October 2021. This year's program features 80 groundbreaking genre works, made up of 13 features and 67 shorts curated from 28 countries.

Tickets are on sale now and start at $8 per session or $29.99 for a 20 session Festival Pass. The festival is streaming online thanks to Australian online platform Hyvio. Find the full program here and book your tickets via the website.


Feature films in the 2021 lineup includes the world premiere of Say Yes Again. It's a marriage proposal with a Groundhog Day twist as a young man relives the day of his proposal over and over again.

The concept of AI takes a step further in 12 Months of Kai, when a lonely web developer becomes pregnant to her personal care humanoid (PCH).

Elulu on the other hand is a non-dialogue animation that's part sci-fi, part psychological thriller, when a man mourning his mother returns to his childhood home and discovers she now lives on in a living painting of his childhood.


For lovers of dystopian future films, Tales of Tomorrow is a must. Set in 2165, the kidnapping of a young girl puts the last stronghold of human civilisation at war and only the help of a teenage boy from 1999 can help save humanity.

Filmed and set in a small town in Canada, The Corruption of Divine Providence delves into the dogma of Catholicism and First Nations communities when a sixteen-year-old Stigmatic Metis girl is kidnapped and three different religious factions vie for control over her upon her eventual return.


The only documentary feature in the festival's lineup is another film from Canada. Steampunk Connection follows the creative and philosophical journey of three steamers who are inspired by science fiction and the Industrial Revolution.

Precarious is a hand-built film that recalls an era of fantasy not reliant on digital effects. It follows a young man as he searches for a cursed fortune in an inescapable 1960s dreamscape. Dreamy and visually haunting, it could be one for the cinephiles

A young woman with a mundane and uneventful life has the exact opposite life in her dreams in Lucid. As a lucid dreamer, she controls what happens in her dreams and meets another lucid dreamer and wonders what life would be like if she could just sleep forever.


Other feature-length highlights include -

I Can't Sleep - a young writer struggles to complete her sci-fi story while battling supernatural forces in real life.
Infinite Light - a grieving man discovers a way he might be able to bring his dead girlfriend back to life
Echoes - a love story set on an island that a couple cannot leave

The short film program is spread across seven themed sessions including: To infinity and beyond! Animated Sci-Fi Shorts, Dystopian Dreamscapes, Humanity VS Technology, The Future of Us, The Dark Side of Humanity, Futuristic, Post Apocalyptic Short SciFi Film Series and Student SciFi Shorts.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. There's much to explore and be in awe of, so go ahead and enjoy grabbing a 20 session Festival pass for the fantastic, affordable price of $29.99, and get more bang for your sci-if buck.
