The Santa Fe Institute’s InterPlanetary Festival (June 14 through 16) is a free, public event that “combines an exploration of complexity science and technological innovation with a summer festival full of music, art, food, drinks and more.” Several major film screenings are part of the fun. On Friday at the outdoor main stage in Santa Fe Railyard Park, you can catch the 1968 sci-fi film Planet of the Apes with a special introduction by Jonathan Rinzler, New York Times best-selling author of the critically acclaimed book The Making of Planet of the Apes. Seems like he might know a thing or two about the film. That takes place starting at 7pm. On Saturday, June 15 local sci-fi writers Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck (better known as James SA Corey, author of The Expanse series) introduce a screening of the 1979 film Alien—a very apt precursor to the sort of hard sci-fi that they write. That starts at 5:30pm at SITE Santa Fe Auditorium. The films close out on Sunday, June 16 with a screening of the 2019 documentary Apollo 11 at the SITE Auditorium starting at 5:45pm. That’s followed by a presentation by Berkeley Center for New Media Director Nicholas de Monchaux (and author of Spacesuit: Fashioning Apollo) on the making of NASA’s Moonsuit. Admission to these events is free, but seating is limited. For a complete schedule of events, go to interplanetaryfest.org.
