Several panels and screenings will be held at our main stage in Room 12. In the upcoming months this list will expand, but for now you can find a list of the already confirmed panels and screenings here:
Remnants of the Order | Panel + screening
The Star Wars fan film made in The Netherlands by film maker Kees van Hattum. The film tells the story of Pai, a young girl who lives with her uncle under the occupation of the Empire. Her everyday life consists of looking for useable objects on her planet and talking with her only friend (and Stormtrooper) HV about what it would be like to become a TIE Fighter pilot. But then her life changes drastically when she finds an object from the past.
The makers of the film will be participating in a panel following the screening, as well as hosting a booth at the convention where you will have the opportunity to look at props from the film and get a presentation of the kind of work involved in making movies.
The Rocketeer | Panel + screening
Marc has been collecting Star Wars merchandise since he was a little kid. What once began as a hobby has now turned into an obsession. He spends hours and hours at collector’s fairs, shops and on the internet looking for Star Wars merchandise, a way of life that cost him his marriage. The one day, Marc finds on eBay the ultimate collector’s item: the rocket firing Boba Fett. While the bids keep going up, Marc will do anything to be able to buy Boba Fett. But lacking funds, how far will he go to complete his collection?
The short film The Rocketeer (2012) was made by Richard Raaphorst, a film maker from Rotterdams who directed commercials, created stories for Jackie Chan and worked on visual designs Terry Gilliam. He became well known when he created the film Frankenstein’s Army (2013) that instantly became a cult classic.
The Rocketeer premiered at the International Film Festival Rotterdam and will be screened at Echo Base Charity Con with an exclusive appearance by director Richard Raaphorst, who will be available after the screening to answer questions from the audience.
