Fantasia Film Festival unveils 25th anniversary poster and opening film

The biggest genre fest in North America returns this summer.

Press Release

The Fantasia International Film Festival was one of the most exciting fests of last year. The event had over 100 features and included movies such as Lucky and PVT Chat. This year marks the 25th anniversary of Fantasia and it is already shaping up to be a big one.

For the creation of its 25th anniversary poster art, Fantasia has once again turned to the talents of renowned illustrator Donald Caron. Taking inspiration from Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima’s beloved Lone Wolf and Cub, Caron has created a work that not only acknowledges the key role that Japanese culture has played across the festival’s history, but also one that hints and honors our upcoming edition’s embrace of Japanese cinema as a core cinematic theme.

Fantasia Film Festival unveils 25th anniversary poster and opening film

The festival will be opening its upcoming edition with the World Premiere of a major Québécois genre feature – Julien Knafo’s Brain Freeze. The film is a smart and stylish zombie comedy that slyly comments on social concerns both domestic and universal. It tales the tale of an environmental disaster that leads to a fast-spreading virus ravaging a wealthy gated community off the island of Montreal.

The Fantasia International Film will take place from August 5 -25.
