All right people, here is the Film ‘menu’ for the day! We realize it might be a bit early for some, so we will start you off with a light brunch, to ease your palate. But don’t think for a minute things will stay that way!
11am starts with a short film that isn’t horror but is captivating, it’s music is hypnotic and will keep your eyes on the screen. Our first feature takes you on an adventure that every filmmaker has struggled with. You might be laughing when the 1st short film block starts at 12:45, but I can guarantee you will not be by the end of it. – We have a little surprise for you – By 2pm we think everyone will be ready for some blood and gore!
OK, now it’s time for the main short film block, we are going to take you all over the place with this one! A great sampling of films from all over the world. We will be following this up with Awards and Prize Giveaways!
The Main Course
Mmmmm, the main course. You like camp? You like blood? You like boobs? Then my friends you will love the main course! We kick things off at 6pm so be in your seats, because you won’t want to miss the mayhem that ensues for the next 4hrs!! At 10pm we will try to bring you back to reality, and then end the evening with an erotic feature.
If you need a little sampling before you join us for the day check out the post CINEMAFANTASTIQUE 3 LINE UP . Many filmmakers will be in attendance, and the one and only Mr Lloyd Kaufman from Troma.
I bet by now your wondering how the hell you can get tickets!! Well for those individuals who want to get their tickets online at a discount, they are available now at Indiegogo and FilmFreeway , until Friday August 25th. On the day of the festival they will be available at the door for $20.
Looking forward to seeing everyone there!!!
This is the Official Announcement that #Cinemafantastique 3 has the great honour of screening the #canadianpremiere of TROMA‘s Return to Return to Nuke ‘Em High aka Vol. 2 on August 26th, 2017 at the Vancity Theatre in Vancouver, BC. Tickets are available at our Film Freeway and Indiegogo pages.
Cinemafantastique 3 is an all-day genre film extravaganza (film festival!) featuring some of the most innovative and crazy genre films from all over the world, and director Lloyd Kaufman will be there in person for an audience Q&A and to sign autographs and sell Tromerchandise throughout the day! Remember, Cinemafantastique 3 will be screening VOL. 2 of Lloyd Kaufman’s Return to Nuke ‘Em High, so if you need to brush up on Vol. 1 prior to this summer’s event we suggest you get your ducks in a row and get yourself re-schooled before witnessing the film that Rogerebert.com critic Simon Abrams called “everything exploitation fans want” and “Kaufman’s angriest polemic yet, and it’s consequently his looniest.”
Saturday, August 26th at the Vancity Theatre, Vancouver, BC. Doors open at 11 AM!
Well, we’re still winding down from this summer’s amazing Cinemafantastique fest and Vancouver’s first-ever Tromafest! But there’s more in store as we roll into the Autumn months…
Shivers Film Society is partnering with Scalarama in the UK (sponsored by the BFI) to bring a little John Waters love to the big screen. This September, the BFI and Scalarama are launching a huge John Waters 50th filmmaking anniversary retrospective. Yes, the mad genius has been making films for fifty years now! As part of this celebration, the Shivers Film Society will be presenting a Scalarama screening of John Water’s Cecil B. Demented double-billed with Troma’s Terror Firmer (directed by Lloyd Kaufman) in a night celebrating anarchy in filmmaking! Sunday, September 13th, 7:00 pm at the Norm Theatre (UBC).
Following this, in October, Cinemafantastique presents it’s first annual 13-Hour Horror Film Fest! Saturday, October 24th, starting at 11:00 am, the day will be loaded with Vampires, Bugs, Psycho Killers, Killer Machines, Giallo, Razor Blades, Hacksaws, and General Mayhem. There will be at least 6 feature films running all day, all cult/horror classics, but the catch is… we’re not going to say which films you’ll get to see on the big screen! You can guess all you want… and if you’re right, you might even get some trivia prizes! It’s going to be a fun day of horror, a few laughs, some surprises and a little trivia with some giveaways! At the Norm Theatre (UBC), Oct. 24, 11:00 am – midnight.

Established in 1974 by Yale friends Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz, Troma Entertainment is arguably the longest-running independent movie studio in North America, and it’s one of the very few genuine brand names in the industry. World famous for movie classics like Kaufman’s “The Toxic Avenger”, Trey Parker’s “Cannibal, the Musical”, “Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead”, “Class of Nuke ’em High”, Charles Kaufman’s “Mother’s Day” and “Tromeo & Juliet”, Troma’s seminal films are now being remade as big-budget mainstream productions by the likes of Brett Ratner, Richard Saperstein, Akiva Goldsman and Steven Pink. Early work of many of today’s luminaries can be found in Troma’s library of 1000 films, cartoons, TV shows and shorts. Jenna Fischer, Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman, Kevin Costner, Fergie, Vincent D’Onofrio, Samuel L. Jackson, James Gunn and Eli Roth are just a few. Troma’s latest in house productions are “Return to Nuke ‘Em High: Volumes 1 & 2”. Troma’s Blu-rays, DVDs, books, t-shirts and movie merchandise can be purchased at Tromashop
