Derby City Council today announced significant changes to its Alt.Fiction festival of fantasy and science fiction literature for 2009, growing to a weekend-long deal and adding movies too, at the city's brand new centre for art and film.

The fourth Alt:Fiction will move from being a one-day event to being a weekend-long festival on Friday 24th to Sunday 26th April.

The extension will allow programme development and will offer the opportunity for the festival to offer greater content for festival goer's money.

The festival will also change venue, from Derby's Assembly Rooms to QUAD, the city's new centre for art and film, to allow organisers to develop an added element of genre cinema to the festival.

Further details and lineup for Alt:Fiction 2009 will be released later.
