International Space Film Fest Planned

Although still in its planning stages, the International Space Film Fest currently set for April 2012 could go a long way in bringing the excitement of reaching for the stars back to the hearts and minds of Americans.


An article on the FloridaToday web site quotes Bill Larson of the ISFF planning committee:  “We’re losing our race for space, and somebody needed to do something to bring the space program back to the American public,” said the former broadcast journalist. “For me, it’s a labor of love.”


Organizers hope to attract between 10,000 - 15,000 attendees at its inaugural event, and is looking to NASA for support to attract such celebrities as John Glenn or space-enthusiast Tom Hanks.  (And hmmm...maybe a SFR book promotion opportunity, too?)

  1. Excellent! I really hate to see the space program cut back. Hey, we've got to have some place to move to when we've screwed up this planet entirely.

  2. Wow, that's a great idea. I, too, hate to see the space program dwindle and die. I grew up in a world looking up and excited about it.
