Last May, SCI-FEST LA: The Los Angeles Science Fiction One-Act Play Festivaldebuted, bringing 2 rotating evenings of scary, hilarious and mind-bending short plays to Los Angeles starring an incredible cast of actors famous for their work on such iconic TV franchises as STAR TREK, THE X-FILES, LOST, STARGATE: UNIVERSE, HEROES, TRUE BLOOD and FRINGE.  The Fest was such a success (with packed houses & great press) that it's brought a whole new set of even more challenging and amazing scripts our way including knock-out new shows like  Neil Gaiman's "The Case of Four and Twenty Blackbirds"and Clive Barker's acclaimed short story, "The Departed," (sent to us by Mr. Barker himself).  We're tremendously excited about presenting all these new stories of time travel, ghostly obsessions and intergalactic journeys live on stage!

Sci-Fest LA is the only festival of its kind on the planet.  Unlike the "cons" or fan gatherings, Sci-Fest LA is passionately dedicated to the creation of NEW Sci-Fi content.  This year, in addition to our stage shows, we have initiated two new Sci-Fi short fiction contests: THE ROSWELL AWARD (for adult Sci-Fi writers from around the globe) and THE TOMORROW PRIZE (for LA County High School Students).   All funds raised at the presentation ceremony for the Tomorrow Prize will be awarded to the winner's high school science department. Info: www.Sci-FestLA.com  Last year, we floated astronauts in space and figured out how to make an live actor's face grow out of an elastic wall.  This year, we have to create a giant space bug, create a renegade cyborg and rip somebody’s head off.  We can’t wait! 
The festival runs from May 7 – May 31, 2015.  All performances will be at the beautiful ACME Theatre, 135 N. LaBrea Avenue, Los Angeles (Just south of Beverly Blvd.)  www.Sci-FestLA.com
