Alien may have told you “In space no one can hear you scream” but it was wrong!

The SSFX (Space Sound Effects) project has challenged independent filmmakers from around the world to create short-films incorporating a series of strange sounds from space recorded by satellites. The resulting highly creative works, spanning a wide array of topics and genres, have been combined into an anthology film.

Following the screening, hear from the filmmakers involved and the people behind the project in a panel discussion featuring audience Q&A.
