Daniel Abella

If you have been a listener to The Malliard Report for any length of time, you will certainly have heard of The Phillip K Dick Film Festival and now The New York Sci-Fi Film Fest. Well, it is that time of year again and on this episode of The Malliard Report Jim welcomes back long time, returning guest Daniel Abella to discuss this year’s festival, trends in film, and so much more.

“The New York Science fiction film festival is an alternative venue for independent Science fiction filmmakers to showcase their work. This is our first year for this event. The Philip K Dick festival, our sister festival, was founded by Dan Abella in 2012 as an outlet for independent Science fiction filmmakers to showcase their work. Daniel Abella is a science fiction film maker and producer. Some of his work includes the webisodes, THE SINGULARITY, THE MONTAUK PROJECT, THE MULDER CHRONICLES and the feature film, THE FINAL EQUATION. He is also the director and founder of the Philip K Dick festival Europe.”

As Daniel mentions in this episode, the quality of film seems to get better and better each year, and now with everything going on, there certainly is no shortage of “plausible” stories to be told. However, lately it does seem as though truth is stranger than fiction.

If you are interested in submitting a film for the festival, check out the website ( for all the requirements, and if you are in the New York area, you try and catch a film or two.
