SF in SF will be presenting Attack The Block as our first film for 2012. If you liked Shaun of the Dead, you’ll love this fast, funny film pits an inner city teen gang against an invasion of aliens, turning a London housing estate into a sci-fi playground. It’s garnered an impressive list of awards for an indie SF flick, including Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature at the Los Angeles Film Festival and the Audience Award for Best Film (Midnights) at SXSW 2011. It also received Special Mention at the 2011 Black Film Critics Circle Awards, which noted that “Attack The Block is a genre film that defies a number of conventions, not only by having a primarily black cast but portraying each character with a dignity seldom seen on screen and even more rarely in a science-fiction film.”

No need to RSVP – seating is limited, and first come, first seated. Cash bar will be open for the reception hour before the film

We will occasionally be bringing you double features during 2012, and our first film festival! Stay tuned…
