Event Details

Imagining the Future: Screen Utopias
Panel Discussion and Screening of Things to Come (1936)
Sun 22 May 2016, 11:00-13:30
Free, but booking required

What is it about the idea of things to come that energises and terrifies in equal measure? How can we imagine what is not yet here and what is to follow – tomorrow or 100 hundred years in the future? Tim Boon, Adam O'Brien, Sefryn Penrose, Angela Piccini and Sarah Street discuss the different ways in which ‘things to come’ have been explored on the silver screen. The panel discussion will be followed by a special screening of Things to Come (Alexander Korda, 1936).

Part of Creating Real Utopias in the 21st Century, a two-day festival in association with the University of Bristol’s Anticipation Research Group. Supported by the AHRC Connected Communities Programme, the University of Bristol Brigstow Institute and the Cabot Institute.

Prebooking is required. You need to show your ticket at the door. 

We have restricted the number of tickets that can be booked to one per transaction. This has been introduced in an effort to stop people automatically booking multiple tickets without confirming if they have guests to go with them. We hope this will help to limit the number of 'no shows' at the events, which currently run at around 35% of bookings. We will monitor the situation. If you need more than one ticket, you can click on the booking link again. The little extra effort involved will hopefully put off those who don’t really need more than one, but not those who do.

Please ensure you use the correct email address. This is where your ticket will be sent. If you do not provide the correct address, you will not receive the acknowledgement email or ticket.
