What’s On – February

It’s an eclectic mix in cinemas this month, with kid’s films (including Battle For Terra – screened all the way back in 2008’s Oktoberfest, if you can believe that!), monster movies, and strange French tales.

There’s also a number of interesting seasons and festivals too, including The Future Film Festival for 13 to 25 year-olds at the BFI, and the aptly named Picocon, at Imperial College.

Plus there’s talks and events on stargazing, parasites, meteors and the occult, and, of-course inevitably, the odd event mixing science and romance!
