Online Event
An astronaut scales a rockface.
Dates and times

Until 30 Nov 2020

Online Event

From outer space to inner space and the rise of the robots, we present a selection of possible futures. Eject from the UK and It’s Okay from the USA use technology to go deep inside our minds, while The Recycling Man from Italy and A Better You from Ireland look at how androids may affect society. Strap yourself in for 80s throwback action thriller The Speed of Time and be very afraid for the woman trapped in time in You Will Never Be Back. Carmentis, a stunningly beautiful space drama from Australia, completes the programme.

Part of Fanomenon, LIFF 2020’s selection dedicated to cult and genre films.

Showing online on Leeds Film Player from 3 November. Visit for more information.
