Screen Shot 2020-02-24 at 8.57.56 PMOn this episode we have our yearly chat with Daniel Abella, the man in charge of The Philip K Dick Sci Fi Film Festival.

In its 8th. Season, this year is a five-day event. We got the chance to talks about how the films are curated, the myriad of geographic locations they come from and all the different ways the conceptualization of the Philip K Dick themeography  is expressed, including ethical morality, genetic manipulation to technological implications to humanity. A myriad of  established and new voices  are being brought to the festival.
