Sci-Fi looks to future with Exposure film fest

USA Film's 'Falls' to open

The Sci-Fi Channel will present Exposure: Future of Film Festival in Gotham running Thursday to Sunday. Showcasing 31 science-fiction features and 73 shorts, four-day fest will open with the screening of USA Films’ “Cherry Falls.”

Pic, helmed by Geoffrey Wright, is a teen thriller about a killer who stalks and kills virgins. “The Gospel According to Philip K. Dick,” a tribute to the sci-fi scribe (“Minority Report,” “Total Recall”), and “The Specials,” a spoof on the “X-Men” starring Rob Lowe and Thomas Haden Church (“George of the Jungle”), will make their world premieres at the fest.

Other highlights of the event include Tim Burton’s first short, “Vincent,” a homage to thesp Vincent Price; Mark Osborne’s short “More,” nominated last year for an Academy Award; and “Incubus,” a thriller helmed by William Shatner.

Exposure: Future of Film Festival was created in the spirit of Sci-Fi Channel’s new film series “Exposure,” which spotlights works of up and coming directors in the sci-fi genre. For more information or tickets, log onto http://www.exposurefest.com.
