Before the Internet Podcast: Looking Back at 23 Years of The Fantasia Film Fest



On this episode of Before the Internet, Edgar Chaput and Thomas O’Connor join Ricky D to discuss the Fantasia Film Festival— the largest genre film festival in North America, Fantasia is packed with hundreds of Canadian, North American and worldwide feature-length premieres as well as shorts. Horror, fantasy, Hong Kong action, animation, groundbreaking documentaries, strange science-fiction, Japanese new wave, and martial arts are just among the many genres the Fantasia Film Festival has covered over the past 23 years. With an emphasis on obscure films from around the world, Fantasia’s offerings range from unique and powerful personal visions to international commercial crowd-pleasers rarely seen on the big screen. We go over a brief history of the fest; how it has evolved; our most memorable moments and what we would change. All this and more!
