As part of our Fantastic Science programme, Imagine welcomes two prominent scientists, both with close links to fantastic cinema.
On Thursday the 10th of April, American scientist Dr. David Kirby presents an overview of the relationship between scientists and the American film industry, entitled Lab Coats In Hollywood. In his lecture The Science of Hollywood, Dr. Kevin Grazier looks at ways in which scientists make science fiction credible, using examples of Academy Award-winner Gravity (for which he was science advisor), among others. This lecture takes place on Tuesday the 15th of April.

For the artwork, Imagine once again collaborated with Utrecht designer Nick Liefhebber. Among Nick's prior work are designs for Paradiso, Sony Playstation and KUVVA. His use of colour and (abstract) shapes turn his posters into powerful graphic statements, which particularly stand out in the street.
Always wanted to watch your own film on the silver screen? This is your chance! For the fifth edition of the Time Capsule Award, Imagine is looking for creative minds able to capture the festival’s essence in a thirty-second festival trailer. This year, the Time Capsule’s theme is FANTASTIC SCIENCE; the fantastic side of science, that is. Time-travelling, mad scientists, microbes fighting each other like monsters? It’s all possible. Let your imagination run wild!
