CINEMAFANTASTIQUE 4 – SPECIAL GUESTS – AUGUST 25th, 2018

Video Nasties CinemafantastiqueCinemafantastique 4 will be at the Vacnity Theatre, 1181 Seymour Street in Vancouver, Saturday AUGUST 25th. This year’s 10 hours of genre film mayhem will also include some amazing special guests, producers, distributors, and filmmaker Q&As with Vancouver’s own Bad Cookie Pictures, Off World Pictures, Darkside Releasing, David Aboussafy from Vancouver’s BADASS Genre Film Fest, and we’ll also be premiering the trailer for Darkside Releasing’s upcoming Canadian release of James Bickert’s Amazon Hot Box (scheduled before the kick-ass closing film, THE THETA GIRL). Our on-site vendors (yes, you can purchase things other than alcohol and popcorn there!) will include Cranium of Curiosities, Netherworld Collectibles, Darkside Releasing, and Shivers Entertainment – and this will all be tied together by the beats of our very special guest DJ, Cinema Therapy. People from our past Cinemafantastique fests may recognize our special guest DJ as the director of the film The Red Man, which was screened to a fantastically receptive audience at Cinemafantastiqique 2 in 2016. We are so pleased to welcome Jimmie “Cinema Therapy” Gonzalez back to Vancouver to be a part of this year’s wild genre film fest! Please, come and join us on August 25th at the Vancity Theatre for this single-priced all-day event, featuring film awards and raffle prizes – doors open at 11:30am, the event begins at noon sharp! (Please note that this event will be LICENSED, so 19+ only… sorry, kiddies.)

CINEMAFANTASTIQUE 4 – AUGUST 25th, 2018

Cinemafantastique 4 will be at the Vancity Theatre, 1181 Seymour Street in Vancouver, Saturday AUGUST 25th. This year’s 10 hours of genre film mayhem includes a block of short films guaranteed to slay and three insane feature films including our opening films KYRSYA TUFTLAD and a wild adaptation of Stephen King’s “POPSY”, and the new cult fan-favourite festival closer THE THETA GIRL. Local filmmakers from Bad Cookie Pictures and last year’s horror-short winners, Richard and Samantha Lukacs, along with several other guests including Jimmie Gonzalez (director of 2016’s The Red Man) who will be our “Cinema Therapy” DJ throughout the day. More local filmmakers will be in attendance, along with the Vancouver genre film distribution company Darkside Releasing, who will be soft-launching their newest release, Rob Grant’s 16mm zombie gore-a-thon Yesterday on blu-ray, and David Aboussafy from the annual Vancouver BADASS film festival! This all-day event is a must for all local indie and genre filmmakers, a chance to get out and network with peers, filmmakers, actors, and to celebrate amazing genre cinema and thrilling grindhouse-style feature films, which have never before been seen in Western Canada! Prizes, giveaways, raffle tickets at the door, and one cheap-ass entry free that gets you in ALL DAY – everything starts at noon on the 25th! (Doors at 11:30am). $18 at the door or to get cheaper tickets ahead of time just go here:
