The Fantasia Film Festival has seen lots of great movies and documentaries. Some very impressive shorts have also debuted. One of the most anticipated (and most fun) was Finn Wolfhard’s directorial debut. Wolfhard first gained fame in his role on Stranger Things. He has continued to impress with his performance in It. He will also star in Ghostbusters: Afterlife and Guillermo del Toro and Mark Gustafson’s Pinocchio.
Now, at the age of 17, he’s completed his debut as a writer and director. His character driven comedy short Night Shifts recently premiered to critical acclaim. To celebrate the launch of his movie to storytelling, Fantasia will be presenting a live virtual talk with Wolfhard. Hosting the talk will be Jay Baruchel. The event will take place on Saturday, August 29 at 2 PM EDT. It will be completely free of charge and accessible worldwide.
This event does not require registration and will be held exclusively on Fantasia’s YouTube channel at https://youtu.be/0Ta0ZBXHMI8
