The Science Fiction and Fantasy Society, better known as Sciffy, is a small but strong community of lovers of the Science Fiction and Fantasy genre, in all its forms. New members are always welcome to join us, at any point during the year. Everyone is welcome, student or non-student alike, as long as you love Sci-Fi and/or Fantasy.

 

 

We meet twice a week. We meet every Thursday to watch Science Fiction and/or Fantasy TV series in a semi-comfortable university venue, before retreating to a pub for a fun night (with no pressure to drink, of course!). Saturdays are our regular social night - films and boardgames in a relaxed, casual environment.

 

 

This semester will, of course, be different. But life finds a way. We're going virtual.

 

 

  • On the 19th September, we'll start with our traditional FresherCon; we host a Sci-Fi and Fantasy themed pub quiz and show a movie (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse). For more information and sign up information, check out the post on our website: https://sciffyedinburgh.wordpress.com/2020/09/12/freshercon-2020-this-time-its-virtual/

 

 

  • Starting on the 24th September, we are planning to watch four programmes from the following (exactly which four TBC): Dark, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, Farscape, Galavant and Gravity Falls. These will likely be streamed over Microsoft Teams. We will still have our post-viewing hangout via the magic of the internet.

 

 

Our casual film nights showcase a wide variety of films from throughout the Sci-Fi/Fantasy genres – from cult classics to cliché-fests – as well as game nights where members can indulge in their love for boardgames. These events usually take place on a Saturday night. In our virtual reality, we'll be streaming these films and playing online board games, such as Jackbox and the like.

 

 

Any member can access our library of over 1600 books and expanding collection of comics & DVDs, located in the Pleasance. To find it, you must be pure of heart and manage to track down the elusive Librarian. Alternatively, just talk to one of the committee members and we can let you in. Unfortunately we can't recreate the majesty of the Library in virtual form, but you can peruse some of what is on offer via the links on our website.

 

 

For more information, just get in touch via Facebook or email the committee.
