MISSION & OBJECTIVE

is a five-night showcase of international thrilling cinema.

We're currently on the lookout for features and shorts to showcase at this October's event. All genre is appreciated, La Samain du cinema fantastique has always embraced films whose sheer individuality puts them in a genre of their own. If you're not sure whether your film is right for us, consider that we've showcased everything from captivating dramas, eccentric comedies, provocative documentaries, mind-blowing experimental works, musicals, even atypical children's films. In other words, set our minds' eyes on fire and we'll do everything possible to get your film seen. Feel free to browse our 2013 website for a better understanding of our programming tastes.

Any work produced in the past 24 months is eligible for both our official jury competition and our Public's Prize.
