Science fiction allows us to travel to imagined futures. We will discover authors such as H.G.Wells, Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov and Jules Verne, the ‘parents’ of science fiction whose imaginations have inspired and influenced the science they dared to predict. 

In our selection of films, we will see a future in which the Earth is covered with rubbish and we will also meet visitors from another planet who will make us question our understanding of our own world.
