Headlining the festival this year are Lance Henriksen (Norwegian father), who as Bishop in Aliens was arguably cinema’s most iconic and convincing android, and Billy Boyd (The Lord of the Rings), along with a number of other familiar faces from sci-fi TV.

Johnny from ‘Viking Quest’ won’t be there, but if you’ve seen Entourage, you probably know the kind of vibe you can expect.

With a heavy focus on sci-fi films and TV, gaming, cosplay, anime, comics and horror, come along and check out the movie props, live shows and lightsaber training, and, of course, get some autographs.
