Days of Fear and Wonder, BFI

As advisors to the SCI-FI: DAYS OF FEAR AND WONDER season at the BFI, we helped plan the London roll-out, developed  interactive content and programmed exclusive shorts programmes.

The season included over 1000 screenings of classic film and television programmes at over 200 locations across the UK, from outdoor events at iconic British sites to screenings in multiplexes, local cinemas and community venues

We also worked with the Cambridge Film Festival to curate and deliver a unique SF event called STATION X at Bletchley Park. 

STATION X was a family-friendly day of Sci-Fi celebrations, with immersive film screenings and fun for all ages, complete with moon buggies, a crashed spaceship site, and mysterious Sci-Fi sounds echoing throughout the park.

The event celebrated the best of Sci-Fi with 14 feature films screening within inspirational locations around the park including the iconic Museum of ComputingWW2 code-breaking huts, the Enigma Cinema and the Teleprinter Hall.

Known to those who worked there during WWII as Station X, this is a wonderful opportunity to explore Bletchley Park, once Britain’s Best Kept Secret, and marvel at the places where astonishing achievements were made by the wartime code-breakers who cracked the Enigma Code and was the birthplace for the world’s first electronic computer, Colossus.
