Cinemafantastique 2 was what indie filmmaking is all about, genuine ass-kicking passion for what you love. There was such a great energy flowing through the theatre that I’m sure I was not the only one inspired to start the ‘next one’ sooner rather than later. We wish all the filmmakers the very best with their projects! Some of the films are still running the film fest circuit and others have started to get picked up for distribution, please do yourself a favour and track these films down (by legit means please), you will not be disappointed!
Thank you so much to everyone who donated, participated, and came out to Cinemafantastique 2! We had a great bunch of films and a truly awesome group of people in attendance. Thank you to UBC and the UBC Film Society for letting us use the Norm Theatre, and in fact be the last ones in the theatre for 2 years while everything is torn down and rebuilt.
Cinemafantastique 3 will be opening for submissions shortly, so stay tuned to Twitter and the like for updates!
