This summer the British Film Institute are running a science and science fiction in film season. Looks like lots to do if you're coming to London between June and August.

In June 2010, the BFI examines how television has sought to deepen our understanding of science and they will also be considering the way scientists and their work have been depicted on screen.

In July 2010, The BFI is hosting a two-month season that surveys the future human condition, with a substantial survey of science fiction in film and TV. Repeatedly, the films, ranging from Siegelís Invasion of the Body Snatchers to Tarkovskyís Solaris, ask what it really means to be human.

In August 2010, the BFI reflects one of our most compelling preoccupations: how human experience and society will evolve in the future. From Luc Bessonís The Last Battle to Terry Gilliamís Twelve Monkeys, they are showcasing films that conjure disturbing post-apocalyptic visions of the future.
