FROM WEDNESDAY 13 APRIL
After a rocky rebranding, the Imagine Festival successfully regained its footing at the cosy Kriterion last year, so Amsterdam’s prime celebration of sci-fi, horror and all things fantastical returns to said cinema for this edition (apart from the fan-favourite ‘Night of Terror’, which takes place in Tuschinski). As well as cult classics of the past and future, check out special programmes such as ‘Power to the People’. This focuses on the growing participation of film fans in the movie industry, leading to remixed trailers, ‘sweded’ films and LEGO versions of The Matrix and Star Wars. And if you have any urgent questions regarding your very own re-imagining of Barbarella or Conan, a masterclass with Bob Murawski, the Academy Award winning editor of The Hurt Locker and Army of Darkness, should set you straight. Plus you can even catch a sneak preview of Murawski’s own Grindhouse release of the obscure Gone with the Pope.
