The 12th Imagine Science Film Festival | Opening Night Short Film Program & Panel Discussion: Phantasmic Futures

What lies in our ever-accelerating future? The 12th Imagine Science Film Festival opens with a series of ambiguous views of what may be ahead, not always so clearly utopian or dystopian but exploring speculative spaces of risk and possibility that lie between. How will technology continue to reshape human relationships? How will society adapt to exploit new gaps in a city increasingly under constant electronic scanning? What opportunities may direct gene editing via CRISPR offer to those seeking to leave behind elements of their personalities that hold them back? What will we find in the landscapes of the post-anthropocene? And what shapes might future nephologists glimpse in the clouds of those reconfigured skies?
