The 12th annual international festival of science fiction and fantastic film is being held at the Stratford Picturehouse and BFI Southbank from 30th April to 6th May.

Families, friends and sci-fi aficionado’s all turned up to the sci-fi film festival to bring out their inner-geeks dressed up as Dark Vader, Storm Troopers and Batman.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Guillermo Del Toro are also involved with this year’s Sci-Fi London Film Festival.

The Star Trek Into Darkness actor and the Blade II director are on a panel helping choose the winner of the festival’s 48 hours competition, where budding filmmakers compete by shooting a five minute sci-fi movie in two days.
