Prepare for a four-day marathon event consisting of screenings, outdoor cinema, keynote addresses, talks, debates, workshops, markets, bike rides and dystopian music nights.
The Convention is a celebration of the profound importance that the industrial landscape of Teesside and the rain of the North of England had on the young Ridley Scott and his subsequent vision for the 1982 dystopian masterpiece Blade Runner.
We also celebrate Blade Runner’s relationship with its source novel, ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep’ by Philip K Dick and its subsequent influence on the global cyberpunk genre.
We will also delve into the current electronic, experimental music, performance, gamer, cosplay, and AV underground scene on Teesside and the NE of England.
Cyberpunk Social event at Georgian Theatre, Stockton-on-Tees, featuring: SHACKLETON, The Rosen Corporation, The Invisible Presence, STEEL CITY COLLECTIVE (DJ Jonny Lazer and DJ LA Rock), + more TBC + new Teesside based artist AV commission funded by Stockton-on-Tees Council.
