Wreckamovie website. It’s also a celebration of Star Wreck, the film series that started this all off. It’s happening as part of Finncon 2010, Finland’s largest science fiction convention.
Both Finncon and the Gathering are totally free.
The Gathering will include finished films, films in production, behind-the-scenes videos, photos, props, posters, and the chance to meet Wreckamovie producers and other members. Energia will be there too, discussing Star Wreck and telling us about their latest movie Iron Sky.
The preliminary timetable is as follows:
Friday 16th July – Sunday 18th July – Wreckers’ Gathering exhibition, screenings of WAM videos and films, informal meetings between Wreckers.
Saturday 17th July 1200-1300 – Iron Sky / Energia Presentation
Saturday 17th July 1400-1500 – Wreckers meeting in a reserved room
Finncon goes on all weekend, and there are plenty of places to go in Jyväskylä on Friday and Saturday night, all within walking distance of Finncon.
Jyväskylä is a modern university town with a good selection of hotels, restaurants, pubs, clubs, shops and other attractions. Like most Finnish towns, it is surrounded by dense wooded countryside and large lakes, and there are regular cruises from the harbour.
Jyväskylä has an airport with connecting flights to Helsinki-Vantaa, a mainline railway station served by Pendolino fast trains (approx 3 hours to Helsinki), and of course you can also get there by bus or car.
It will help with the planning if we can find out how many people are likely to turn up, so please use this event to indicate how certain you are to come.
This is an open event so anyone can RSVP, and anyone can invite other people to RSVP. Tell your friends!
