The Tall Man

When Concordia Meets Fantasia

With more than 160 feature length films premiering at the festival, we also have a list of films that we regretably won’t be able to attend (conflicting screenings, exhaustion, etc.) and we’re hoping someone out there can share their love for these films and the festival as much as we do:

For Love’s Sake
A Little Bit of Zombie
Cold Steel
Massacre Gun

Starry Starry Night
The Sword Identity
The Victim
Zombie 108
Quick
Euro Crime! The Italian Cop & Gangster Films that Ruled the ’70s
Vulgaria

See you at Fantasia, if not, tune in to DreamMovieCast daily for reviews, comments and news on the Fantasia International Film Festival. Happy festival watching!
