Les Mycéliades, science fiction festival

Les Mycéliades, science fiction festival

In more than 50 cities in France, film lovers and media libraries will bring this science fiction festival to the regions, on the theme of endless journeys. In Guérande, films, video games and meetings are on the program of this fortnight. Infinite Journeys will come in multiple aspects:

– Space travel with the screening of the films Wall-E and ET the Extraterrestrial or a meeting with the Grain de Ciel Astronomy Society about space exploration and the screening of the film In the Eyes of Thomas Pesquet

– Time travel with the films Back to the Future and Interstellar

Astrophysicist Mathilde Gödel will be the guest of this festival and will present an interesting conference on interstellar travel. Fiction or reality? In what cinema presents us on screen, is everything possible? Teleportation, black holes, the Millennium Falcon's light speed, or Han Solo's freezing temperatures… is this scientifically possible? Through supporting video excerpts, it will expose all the fantasy that Hollywood spreads regarding scientific knowledge.

Budding explorers will be able to participate in numerous digital workshops, to build their own robots or even create and launch their own shuttle, rocket, plane or satellite, in a flight simulator game.
Other meetings will allow as many people as possible to discover games inspired by science fiction, basic novels or comics of the genre, or even reader favorites.
