The Fantasia Film Festival is by far, the biggest genre film festival in the world, usually lasting three and a half weeks and showcasing hundreds of fantastic films from across the globe. This year’s first wave of films has been announced and the lineup looks like a doozy, with fresh entries from returning favorites and a whole slate of new talent waiting to dazzle us with new perspectives and angles.
Part of the joy of Fantasia, of any film festival really, is being surprised, by having a movie that was barely on your radar turn out to be one of your favorite films of the year. Sometimes, a lack of anticipation can make for far more rewarding and surprising experiences and every year, Fantasia proves time and time again, that they put together one of the best lineups of movies to see. Below you’ll find the official press release of all the movies they’ve announced so far. Remember folks, this is just the first wave and we have a lot more films to look forward to.
