ABOUT

ONE Language:  Sci-fi

The Atlanta Sci-fi Film Festival is presented by the Multicultural Sci-fi Organization (MCSFO)

Our goal is to grow this organization into The Multicultural Sci-fi CENTER - A place where we can foster these creative minds
by providing necessary resources, hosting in depth discussions on speculative fiction and new technology. Facilitate workshops for: writers, graphic novelists and film scoring.






SCI-FI ART

Sci-fi Art Exhibit

MCSFO works with talented artists to showcase some of the best sci-fi art around the world.
This year, we will celebrate Technology in Science Fiction from many types of visual art mediums.

The Sci-fi Cinematic Orchestra Stage

Although science fiction and fantasy are the most imaginative of all genres of film, they would be nothing without the Music! Sound designer, Walter Murch describes it in this way, "The eyes are the front door, and the ears are the back door;" and as Tamara Rogers, a sound expert in Hollywood, puts it, "Audio is the last frontier."
-filmsound.org

This year we will have a special guest performing music from your favorite sci-fi movie/TV show.
