About the Event
Let's geek out together in a private screening of BlackBerry!
The SFFILM Festival recipient of the 2023 Sloan Science on Screen Prize, a recognition that celebrates the compelling depiction of science in a narrative feature film.
Matt Johnson, Canadian director/writer/actor perfectly captures the heady creative period of the mid-’90s with this exuberant depiction of the rise and fall of the BlackBerry, the first smartphone.
Watch the Trailer on Youtube.
