31. Present Imperfect: Speculative Fiction

September 30, 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Award-winning screenwriter-turned-novelist Elan Mastai sends us to an alternate world, a thrilling techno-utopian paradise where flying cars and robot maids are a reality, then challenges us to ask ourselves if that reality really is better than our own, and whether we really will want the futures we now imagine. With Kingston Canadian Film Festival director Marc Garniss, Elan talks about the mechanics of time travel and the complications that can arise, the experience of adapting his own novel for screen, and where the two art forms cross over or diverge.

A co-presentation by KWF and Kingston Canadian Film Festival

1:30 – 2:30 pm
