We have done the impos... ah, you know how it goes.

On behalf of the entire sci-fi subcommittee of the Indianapolis International Film Festival, I'd like to thank everyone for coming out and seeing our shows. I had a chance to sit and talk with some of the board members (our very own Powers That Be) Sunday night, and they were quite pleased with the turnout for our sci-fi shows.

This was the first year science fiction was separated into its own section, and whether or not it became a recurring thing hinged a whole lot on the audiences' numbers and reactions to our shows, so it was a happy surprise when they asked us to start thinking about what we could show next year. (Happy not because I didn't expect it to happen, but because I didn't expect it to happen so soon.)

So that's it for the science fiction portion of this year's festival (emphasis on "this year's"). The festival itself continues through this Saturday, so I encourage everyone to check the film schedule and come see another movie or three. Remember that Waitress (featuring Nathan Fillion) shows this Wednesday afternoon and Thursday night. (The vast majority of the sci-fi committee will be there Thursday night, because someone has to give the love to Nathan, and it just doesn't seem like a television network is gonna do it.)

Also, be sure to check back here from time to time. Besides our own events through the Indianapolis International Film Festival, we'd like to make Indianapolis Sci-Fi a good source of information about other science fiction events in Indianapolis and the surrounding areas. (If you know of any such events and we haven't mentioned them yet, be sure to drop us a line and let us know. Our email addresses are over there in the sidebar.)

Thanks again, everyone. See you at the movies!

Looking forward to more Indy Sci-Fi shindigs! Keep up the good work!

Next year at the film festival, show Serenity again (or eps of Firefly) and try to get some of the BDHs to attend!
