SOPHFIFEST launched two new events in 2020:
- THE WATCHERS
- THE READERS
For more information, see the below:
Accept your destiny! Join SOPHFIFEST’s monthly watch party, called THE WATCHERS (yes this is a Buffy reference). Happening every second Wednesday of the month from 8pm, free of charge, Soph hosts a watch party of a science fiction or fantasy film via teleparty (film is announced a week before the event). Teleparty (previously NetflixParty) is a free extension which synchronises video playback and allows you to group chat. Teleparty is encrypted end-to-end so be reassured that your data is safe whilst using the extension. To find out more, check out the EVENT LISTINGS page or head to Facebook and Like the SOPHFIFEST page for announcements about upcoming events.
Join SOPHFIFEST’s monthly book club, called THE READERS.
Soph will announce the book we’ll be reading at the end of each month. Then on the following last Sunday of each month starting from 13:00, THE READERS can chat about what they thought about the book. This is a reoccurring event so each month there’s a new book to chat about! To find out more, check out the EVENT LISTINGS page or head to Facebook and Like the SOPHFIFEST page for announcements about upcoming events.
Can’t make it? Don’t worry. After every book club, we’ll publish our Book Report which includes the premise and some insightful quotes from the book so you won’t miss out! For previous Book Reports, click here.
Stay tuned to SOPHFIFEST.com in 2021 because there will be more events including writing workshops and a DIY Film Festival. Both of these events focus will be to promote and support up and coming new artists, specifically women/womxn, People Of Colour/Black Indigenous People Of Colour, LGBTQ+ and Disabled people. My aim as the curator of these events is to help move Science Fiction in a direction that is not majority cis White Het Able-Bodied Male, as it is currently. If you would like to help or collaborate with this, please do get in contact HERE.
