NYC Sci-Fi Film Festival Screens 'Electric Faces'
The New York Science Fiction Film Festival marked its inaugural year last week, taking over four venues in the city and screening a multitude of science fiction short films, including Electric Faces.
Vice Magazine's channel Motherboard writer Michael Piel wrote:
“Electric Faces”, directed by Johnny Herbin, showed some of the strongest world-building of the night (drug addicts in the future have blue-tinged hands; robots, a bit like Saga, have TV’s for heads), but had the characters and actors to match it. The heist-gone-wrong premise is reminiscent of Guy Ritchie’s better films, pivoting from humor to tragedy in a single frame.
Instituto Cervantes, The Anthology Film Archives on 2nd Avenue, The Producers Club Theaters on 44th Street and The Roxy Hotel played host to a programme curated by John Stevens, Aldo Romero and Festival Director Daniel Abella. The organisers stated that they had sought "solid science fiction and supernatural films that embody good story telling excellent effects and entertaining narratives".
