    While a large part of the festival focuses on horror in all its shapes and forms, that’s not what we’re solely interested in. We’re looking to celebrate the weird, the wonderful and the fantastic, which includes science fiction, fantasy and the kind of narrative dramas that take human experiences to the extreme.

    We’re also placed right at the heart of British film-making, festival head Tom Lawes and festival programmer David Baldwin are both keen filmmakers themselves and looking to give exposure to fellow directors and writers with the festival’s official competition.

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    A legendary 3-week blow-out of worldwide fantastic cinema taking place each July in the heart of Montreal, now deep in planning its 18th edition.

    We’re currently on the lookout for features and shorts to showcase at this summer’s event. What exactly are we looking for? While predominantly a fantasy/action/horror festival, Fantasia 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.

    Taking things a step further, in 2012, Fantasia launched the Frontières International Co-Production Market as well as a film market component. Our 2013 Frontières lineup featured dazzling new projects from Joe Dante, Buddy Giovinazzo, Bobcat Goldthwait, Richard Stanley and Andrzej Zulawski, to name a few.

    Any work produced in the past 18 months is eligible for both our official jury competition and our Public’s Prize.

    There is no entry fee for Quebec productions (note that Qc prods must be submitted through our website and not here).

VAFF strives to promote dynamic and innovative images of Asians usually not found in mainstream film and television, with the belief that in order to have these images, the creative control and storytelling must come from the Asian communities themselves and the support must begin with these independent filmmakers.

    Over the years, VAFF’s vision has expanded from simply showcasing the work of filmmakers, to include mentoring and support for these filmmakers to bring their stories to film; to develop an audience for these films; as well as inform and educate audiences regarding the growing filmography of North American Asian, Asian international diaspora and mixed heritage filmmakers.

    By meeting all the above objectives, VAFF endeavours to ultimately develop understanding and appreciation of, and co-operation and open dialogue and communication between, diverse communities.

    This gives your movie a chance to be seen by a wider audience and have a one day theatrical release in the UK, as well as a prestigious Leicester Square premiere/debut.

    We also have the 'Horror Awards'. These beautiful Crystal Awards are presented at the end of the festival at an awards ceremony.
    Previous winners of these prestigious awards have gone on to secure distribution deals in the UK and abroad. The 2013 awards were sponsored by Haunted: After Dark.

    Each film screened is nominated in at least one awards category and often many others.

    We are committed to increasing the profile of independent horror films and film-makers. A number of reviewers are present at all our screenings, to ensure you get plenty of global publicity, both on-line and in print for your film.
