Visions of the future encompass both both utopian and dystopian narratives, hopes and fears. HG Wells' Time Machine established an iconic image and creative precedent and device for writers surveying human history's accomplishments and disappointments, opening the door for speculations on what could be possible to achieve or suffer. ISF sees these speculations on technology and human society as especially important lenses to sharpen our insight and choices in shaping our future. We look to identify and celebrate the writers, filmmakers and scholars producing these valuable insights into our future possibilities.
