Bio OKO’s annual science fiction Future Gate Film Festival has come around again and this year focuses on the theme of ‘Beyond Humanity’. From the 23/02 – 26/02, check out gems like The Terminator and more. Programme highlights below.
Not to be confused with the Michael Jackson song.. Moonwalkers is a 2015 film about the Apollo 11 moon landing, and how it never happened. Starring Rupert Grint (Harry Potter) and Ron Perlman (Hellboy), and captured with a proper 60s feel, this is worth a look.
Screening: Thurs Feb 23, 20.00
The science fiction classic about the unstoppable cyborg that shot both James Cameron and Arnold Schwarzaneggar to fame is screening with a bonus discussion after the film. An essential for fans that have never had the chance to see it on the big screen.
Screening: Friday Feb 24, 20:30
Akira is a Japanese anime classic that has developed a cult following worldwide. Immerse yourself in a post apocalyptic Tokyo with a child who possesses lethal superpowers. An addictive narrative and a visual masterpiece.
