The PARALELO festival is a space for reflection generated from the meeting and synergy of different artistic manifestations that revolve around the theme of science fiction. Imagine different, utopian, parallel worlds. This genre opens the space of seeing us reflected in worlds that are not part of our reality but are inspired by it. It is loaded with idealism and magic, but also very crudely. From stories that pass outside the planet Earth, to a parallel universe in which technology dominates us. For us, Science Fiction leaves many doubts that we try to solve but ends up raising even more questions.
Cinema, literature and the performing arts are the means through which artists from different countries of the world communicate their concerns, concerns, and points of view about the contingencies that the human species has against technological development, explorations of imagined worlds, both possible and extraordinary.
