Eye For Film >> Festivals >> A-Z >> Fantasia International Film Festival >> 2020
This year's Fantasia International Film Festival is taking place online because of Covid-19, but contains the same eclectic mix of fantasy, science fiction, horror, anime and action as ever. Enjoy cutting edge animation, nerve-racking chillers, daring documentaries and the latest experimental works from Japan. Despite the change of format, there are still opportunities for attendees to engage with filmmakers at the festival and socialise with the Fantasia community.
The festival runs from 20 August to 2 September.
