Last year’s screenings went down a storm, and this year you can help select the programme
One of the most popular attractions at the previous SFX Weekender was the film screening and TV screenings, especially the Buffy “Once More With Feeling” sing-along (they’re be something similar this year, don’t you worry) and The Wrath Of Khan (some people were still getting teary at Spock’s death even after all these years… and knowing the fact he’s been resurrected in the meantime). It didn’t matter that most people had seen the films before; there’s something special about watching your favourite SF films in the company of other fans. It’s all about the bonding.
So we’re going to have even more screenings this year. Oh yes. And this time you can help us to programme the screening schedule by voting for what films you want to see. We can’t have a free for all vote because there are certain restrictions on what we can screen. So we’ve drawn up five shortlists of contenders for you to choose from, and five winning film from each of the five categories will be shown at SFX Weekender 2.
And one of those categories in particular is going to be a lot of fun for us in the office, as we’ve each picked one film we’d love to see shown there. You may see various members of the team championing their choices in various places across the internet in the coming weeks because we’re all determined not to come last!
So, what are you waiting for? Get voting! Even if you’re not coming to the Weekender feel free to support your favourites…
