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:
