Uri Aviv

Science Fiction Evangelist. Director, Utopia Festival & Association, Promethean - Project Management, Program Curation, Artistic Consultancy and Production

At Utopia, Israel's International Festival for Science Fiction and Fantastic Film, Aviv merges an international film festival with an events program emphasizing the mutual inspiration between science and science fiction and the social and philosophical significance of speculative thought, including academic conferences, public science talks, tech meetups, workshops, art exhibits and more. Aviv is fascinated with disruptive technologies, their societal impacts and ethical implications; the inspiration and hope he finds in scientific research, space exploration, science fiction and artistic creativity and the importance he sees in story-telling. Under the private consultancy of Promethean, Aviv has managed and produced creative projects, curated programs and spoke and moderated at various events along these lines of interest, in both the tech and creative sectors.
