Allright folks, if you're a regular reader you will have noticed some exclusive announcements we've made about the Sci-Fi London Film Festival lineup and that's because we've been working closely with the fine folks over there. Why? They're like us, they love the best in genre cinema and they're not afraid to show b or even z-grade stuff which suits us fine here at Quiet Earth. What can you expect?

How about these world premiers:
Eyeborgs Web site with trailer
A great looking film about a government network of surveillance cameras, but what are they for?

Eraser Children Teaser
A film we've been personally championing from down under about a world depleted of natural resources which uses humans as the energy source and it's all ruled by one man, MISNER!

Recon 2023 Web site with trailer
Part 2 of the scifi B-favorite intergalactic war.

The Hunt for Gollum Website with trailer
A Lord of the Rings fan film adapted from elements of the appendices of The Lord of the Rings. The story follows the Heir of Isildur; the "greatest huntsman and traveller in Middle Earth" as he sets out to find the creature Gollum. The creature must be found to discover the truth about the Ring, and to protect the future Ringbearer.

And to boot one of our favorite post apocalyptic films Ever Since The World Ended (review) will be getting a retro screening.

There's plenty more! Check the full list after the break or head straight to the Festival website.
