Philip Kindred Dick (December 16, 1928 – March 2, 1982) was an American novelist, short story writer, essayist and philosopher whose published works mainly belong to the genre of science fiction. The novel The Man in the High Castle bridged the genres of alternate history and science fiction, earning Dick a Hugo Award for Best Novel in 1963. 

In addition to 44 published novels, Dick wrote approximately 121 short stories, most of which appeared in science fiction magazines during his lifetime. Although Dick spent most of his career as a writer in near-poverty, eleven popular films based on his works have been produced, including Blade Runner,Total Recall, A Scanner DarklyMinority ReportPaycheckNext, and The Adjustment Bureau. In 2007, Dick became the first science fiction writer to be included in-the Library of America series.


The mission of the Philip K. Dick Film Festival is to promote original or adapted material inspired by the works of Philip K. Dick, Jorge Luis Borges, Italo Calvino, Robert Anton Wilson, Franz Kafka and others who have explored the metaphysical, the eerie  in all its manifestations. We look at films that challenge the viewers reality  with ideas and concepts not normally found in conventional stories. All genres are welcome.

We look for original voices and visions in works submitted. Lastly, this is a festival by filmmakers for filmmakers.
