PKD Film Will Play at Worldcon

A few weeks ago I wrote enviously about fans at the Florida Supercon who’d get to see the new feature film based on Philip K. Dick’s Radio Free Albemuth.

Well I’m green no more — the movie has just been added to the Renovation Film Festival. According to the pocket program Radio Free Albemuth will be shown Saturday at 10:00 p.m. in the Tuscany Ballroom of the Peppermill Hotel immediately following the Hugo Ceremony. It couldn’t be any easier for me to find.

Variety reviewed the movie favorably on August 2 saying,

this well-performed paranoia piece about a music exec rebelling against the state after receiving messages from an alien intelligence should connect strongly with Dick’s fanbase and attract upscale auds seeking sci-fi with political and philosophical substance.
