Science fiction stretches boundaries, awakens our pioneer spirit, shows seemly impossible events, and through it all creates a theoretically plausible future from the present day like no other genre is capable of doing. It also wonders about the first contact with the third kind, which often is just a symbol for strange encounters in our world. The SCI-FI-SHORTS program takes the viewer on a light-speed journey to an animated tiger in space and to the threatening lights in the sky through a diverse range of stories.
