Mini-Film Festival #26: Westercon 70

I've presented a couple of Apocalypse Later sets at Westercon before (that was Westercon 68 in San Diego) but, as it's a regional convention that's run by different non-profits in different states each year, each Westercon is thoroughly different. This one was especially different because I was the vice-chair and I found myself juggling a lot of hats.

This was also the first sci-fi set that I've programmed since I ran my own genre film festival, the Apocalypse Later International Fantastic Film Festival. I ended up using three short films from that, as well as Flight Fright, which was a bonus there, plus a couple of other films I've used at previous events. Three Creative Commons licensed shorts that I've never screened anywhere before completed the set.

Westercon 70 was also LepreCon 43 and I usually program two sci-fi/fantasy sets and a steampunk set for them. Because of all those hats, I kept myself to one set this time out, but included sci-fi, fantasy and steampunk.
