Wonderfest 2017

Ever wonder how movie special effects are made? This festival is all about movie magic (specifically genre movie magic), with how-to modeling demos, panel discussions, costume/prop contests and late-night movie screenings. Guests at this year’s Wonderfest include Colin Cantwell (designer of the ships in “Star Wars”), Brian Howe (actor from “Westworld” and “American Horror Story”), Rick Sternbach (longtime designer for the Star Trek series) and Gary Kerr (a sci-fi archaeologist).
