Geekster | Cultural Entrepreneur | PMO

At Utopia, Israel's international science fiction and fantastic genres film festival, I merge an international film festival with a unique program of science, imagination and future visions events, encomassing a broad range of discplines and creative fields, alongside satellite events such as a games development conference and an un-conference about the technological singularity.

I'm fascinated by the mutually inspirational relationship between science and science fiction, with the challenge of communicating science to different audiences, and with discussing the social and political challenges that technological breakthroughs entail.

Under the Promethean brand I initiate and produce science communication events, science and cultural programs and singularity-oriented projects, as well as provide artistic direction and consultancy, content editing and production to projects, events and organizations intertwining science, culture, technology, philosophy, futurism and geek culture in general.

I'm a regular attendee at the Cannes International Film Festival and have spoken and curated programs in international film festivals as well as film, digital media and science communication conferences in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Poland and Israel.

If you're interested in me speaking, curating and presenting a program, consulting or want to collaborate with Utopia or Promethean, please contact me at avivuri [at] gmail.com or uri [at] utopiafest.org.il.
