"Meander" is one the films screening this year during Other Worlds Film Festival.

If you’d like to spend the winter anywhere but the current time and place — fair, fair — you can always travel to other worlds. That is, the Other Worlds Film Festival, Austin’s sci-fi cinema celebration, which will happen virtually this year from Dec. 1-6.

The full lineup is coming in November, but the fest announced its first five films. So far, expect the Texas premieres of “Skylin3s,” “Death of a Rockstar,” “Meander,” “Minor Premise” and “The Oak Room.”

Festival badges are sold in two tiers: Pulsar for $99 and Supernova for $143 (and extra perks). To purchase a badge and find more information about the films, go to otherworldsfilmfest.com.
