X-Philes from all over the world descended on La Salle, Illinois, on March 3rd for X-Fest, a celebration in honor of 25 years of The X-Files. The small venue outside Chicago hosted one of the largest gatherings of X-Files actors since the Expos we remember from the 90s.
Fans had a chance to meet with Karin Konoval (Ma Peacock, Judy & Chuck Poundstone), Erika and Sabrina Krievins (Eves), Annabeth Gish, Mitch Pileggi, Nicholas Lea, Steve Railsback (Duane Barry), Megan Leitch (Samantha Mulder), Robert Wisden (John Patrick Modell), Tom Noonan (John Lee Roche), Jerry Hardin (Deep Throat), Steven Williams (X), Michael Berryman (Owen Lee Jarvis), Brian Thompson (Alien Bounty Hunter), William B. Davis, Nick Chinlund (Donnie Pfaster), and Doug Hutchinson (Eugene Victor Tooms).
La La Land Records have announced that they plan to release a fourth and final four-CD set of X-Files soundtrack music in late 2018 or early 2019, and they are asking for your help. The producers at the label have asked Philes what unreleased music you would like to see included on this farewell set. Music can come from episodes which have already been covered in previous sets or from episodes which have never been included thus far. You can join the conversation and have your say on the Film Score Monthly discussion board.
La La Land Records have also announced that they plan to release a separate album covering music from season 11 this spring, much as they did with season 10 back in 2015. As such, they request that no music from the current season be included in the box set requests.
If you have yet to pick up any of the X-Files releases from La La Land Records, a limited edition re-issue of Volume One is currently available, as well as Volume Two, Volume Three, and The Event Series (season 10). For completists, two albums of Millennium soundtracks are also available, however, The Lone Gunmen/Harsh Realm soundtrack album is now sold out.
Is not a secret that Scully has been an inspiration to many... so it is only logical that we use the talents developed by her inspiration to see just how much it has changed our lives!
Check out "The Scully Effect" segment developed by our esteemed Julie Ng, as part of the promotional campaign of the show, highlighting the importance of this subject and how it converges with The X-Files and beyond.

FOX has shared new promo photos from "Nothing Lasts Forever" which will air as episode 9 on Wednesday, March 14th. After looking at them, that feels like a really really long time to wait to get answers about this church scene.
In the episode, Mulder and Scully uncover a mysterious cult that is "consumed with macabre rituals" while investigating human organ theft. Karen Nielsen wrote the episode and it was directed by James Wong.
