Imagine Film Festival postponed till further notice

Dear friends of Imagine,

Nature Strikes Back has caught up with Imagine. While we prepared a programme this year about a tormented nature striking back, that very same nature has now struck everyone –including the festival – in microscopic form.

Now the covid-19 measures have been intensified and extended to June 1st, the Imagine Film Festival in April is definitely off the cards. An alternative we were working hard on behind the scenes has become impossible now as well. It’s a new situation for all of us.

We will use this coming period to explore if and how we can still organise a festival this year, in any shape or size. Because we don’t want to deny you, our audience, the power of fantastic fiction. Fiction that not only offers escapism and comfort, but also inspiration and visions of possible future scenarios.

We’ll be back – we just don’t know exactly how and when yet. We’ll be working hard on this in the coming time and will keep you informed. In the meantime: stay healthy and follow the rules set out by the government. Because only superheroes are invincible and even then not always.
