10-13 November 2011. Zombie Invasion
George A. Romero lands in Trieste to receive the career award. A horde of zombies, woken up for the occasion, fills up the Cinecity, the venue where the Festival has been taken place since 2000. The edition – notable for the change of the Festival’s name into Trieste Science+Fiction – hosts a focus on made-in-Russia space cinema as a tribute to the 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s first orbital flight.
The poster of the 2011 edition is emblematic of Trieste Science+Fiction’s love for the fantastic, the surreal and all that is on the verge between real and unreal: it shows a female “dancer” en pointe suspended in the air, as if she is being pulled up by an invisible force or by the invisible threads of a puppeteer.
