IFI, Saturday 8th June - Sunday 30th June
IFI Dark Skies, the annual science-fiction film festival, explores how the genre has responded to our ambiguous relationship to the machines we have created.
The rapid development and integration of automation, information and biotechnologies offers seemingly limitless opportunities in all aspects of our public and private lives, but at what cost? The unchecked progress of machines with artificial intelligence capabilities has the potential to become a pressing concern for future generations, though cyborg armies will probably remain the preserve of speculative science fiction.
The season opens on Saturday 8th with Michael Crichton's 1973 thriller Westworld, while Steven Spielberg's epic Oscar-nominated fantasy A.I. Artificial Intelligence will close out the season on Sunday 30th. The screening of The Matrix is presented in association with Dublin 2019 – An Irish WorldCon.
