Oslo Science Fiction Festival
ShadowCon was a fan-run science fiction festival in Oslo, Norway, which was held annually from 1996 to 2005. The festival sprang from The Shadow Project, a merger of the B5 Alliance and the TreX Files fan communities, and was named after a race of aliens in the Babylon 5 series.
Activities at ShadowCon included the viewing of movies and TV shows, lectures, debates, contests, auctions and costume balls. The event took place in the summer at Helga Eng's House at the University of Oslo.
On several occasions, ShadowCon was organized in collaboration with the literature-oriented national fan convention Norcon, under the names Intercon (1994, 1998, 2001, and 2005) and Multicon (2000 and 2001). In 2007, it became the Oslo Science Fiction Festival. It appears that The Shadow Project ended after the last Oslo Science Fiction Festival was held in 2012, when the existing leadership felt no longer able to continue and sufficient new leadership was not found. The OSFF now appears to be a general interest fan group with a presence on Facebook, which puts on small events.
