Cinemafantastique 5 is a go!!

We are so looking forward to another installment of Cinemafantastique! Our Cinemafantastique5 Film Freeway is up and running if you would like to submit your films. Once again we are looking for the weird and wonderful that make up the spectrum of Horror, Thriller, Sci-fi, and Erotic films…really we like anything that is on the Darkside (pun intended), so if you have an animation, drama, comedy, or a documentary film, you can submit that too!! Once again we would like to thank everyone for their patience while we attended to our Darkside adventures; we are excited to be back, and see what you talented folks have going on!

We’d also like to thank Richard and Samantha Lukacs of Crone Cult Pictures for the awesome photography we were able to use to make our graphics this year.

Cinemafantastique 5 Update.

 

CF4_FilmFreeway_Banner_2

I would like to thank everyone who has been inquiring into when we will be accepting entries into Cinemafantastique 5! Some of you may be aware that we started an indie, genre distribution company Darkside Releasing and we are trying really hard to get the filmmakers films that have signed with us out to the world to see via Blu-ray , VOD etc. and well to be frank it is a shit ton of work for 2 people; one of those still working their full time ‘day’ job.

So unfortunately for 2019 we haven’t been able to plan for a festival that would be able to showcase the films in the way we would like. That being said we are hoping to be back in 2020 for the full day or two festival, and we are still toying with  ‘Pop ups’ at smaller venues because we are crazy like that.  We will let everyone know when we open on FilmFreeway for entries as we no longer accept through email or another platform at this time.

We would still love to promote any other festivals and events that are happening out there, so please drop us an email to nicole@cinemafantastique.org or be in touch through Facebook, Instagram or Twitter if you would like us to shout out your event!!

Thank you again for all your support!!

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.)
