Fantasia FestivalDizzle3
The highly successful 13th edition of the Fantasia Film Festival is drawing to a close today after a 3 week movie marathon. With a diverse line-up of high selection standards, the festival attracted more than 90 000 fans this year and saw 40% of its 195 screenings (most of these shown in Concordia Hall Theatre – 700 seats) completely sold out. With such eminent titles that had previously premiered at Cannes such as THIRST from South Korea’s Park Chan-wook, LASCARS from the French creative team of Emmanuel Klotz and Albert Pereira Lazaro and of course Quentin Tarantino’s INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS, and wonderful discoveries such as SANS DESSEIN from Quebec’s own Deadcat Films, Yang Ik-june’s BREATHLESS and Nicolas Alberny and Jean Mach’s 8th WONDERLAND, Fantasia has one again demonstrated the energy and variety of genre cinema. The Festival Awarded Seattle Filmmaker David Russo with the prize for best director.
