A Cross-Stitch In Time [LIFF Preview: Dimensions]

Looking through the London Independent Film Festival programme (April 12th to 22nd) - this year's festival includes several indie feature films with science-fiction or fantasy themes. 

Dimensions: A Line, A Loop, A Tangle Of Threads , directed by Sloane U’Ren, is showing on Saturday 21st April at LIFF. It's described as a 1920s/1930s sci-fi love story and is currently touring festivals worldwide - recently winning the Gort award at Boston Sci-Fi. If you can't make it to LIFF then it's also on the bill at Sci-Fi London.

Why see this time-travel film? Imagine The Time Traveller's Wife as an indie romance rather than a Hollywood romance, or imagine the complexity and intelligence of Primer delivered by a cast (including Camilla Rutherford) capable of speaking in coherent sentences. I'm rather looking forward to it.
