Sciffy is the nickname of the University of Edinburgh Science Fiction and Fantasy Society, a student society dedicated to science fiction and fantasy in all their forms – books, films, TV shows, everything.

What does Sciffy do?

During the semester, on Thursdays we have our series night. We watch episodes of various TV shows for a couple of hours and then head to the pub (probably at Pleasance or Teviot). There will also be an opportunity to visit our library.

The series for this semester (September 2020) are: Dark, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, Galavant and Gravity Falls. Series night will be held from 7:00-9:30pm every Thursday from the 24th September, location: THE INTERNET¬†(…Microsoft Teams, it’s just Microsoft Teams).

Film/Games nights are usually Saturday from 7pm at a member’s flat or at Teviot and don’t follow a strict schedule, showing pretty much whatever people bring along and want to watch. Dates and Locations are posted on our Facebook group and mailing list. During this very unusual time, you’ll be able to join us on THE INTERNET (…again, just Microsoft Teams, and Discord for Games Nights).

We also have many other events on during the semester! The best way to stay up to date is to join our Facebook group, or our mailing list which one of our committee members can sign you up to at our series nights, or you can email the committee.

How do I join?

Membership costs ¬£3 for students and ¬£6 for non-students, which can be given to any member of the committee or bought online via EUSA. You don’t have to be a member to come along for a week or two or a few more than that, though you will have to join if you want to take anything out of the library.
