From Orkney right down to the Isle of Whithorn, Scotland has embraced the BFI’s new film and television season, Sci-Fi: Days of Fear and Wonder, presented together with O2. This three-month celebration of all things weird and wonderful will run from October to December 2014 with screenings taking place across the country.

Over 40 screenings have already been announced, with events featuring special guests, much-loved sci-fi classics and a handpicked selection of rare gems. From favourites like Alien and Ghostbusters to African sci-fi and a strand dedicated to women in the genre, there is something for all tastes in this hugely diverse programme.

To See Oursels

To See Oursels is a touring season of films featuring a director’s cut of Scottish history, culture and identity. Combining a range of classic Scottish films and rarely screened TV dramas, expert introductions and panel discussions, the season shines a spotlight on Scottish identity – from the heroic to the gritty – and on how Scotland has understood itself on screen over the last four decades.
