Fantaspoa is an annual film festival in Porto Alegre, Brazil and this year we are pleased to announce that HCF will be featuring an exclusive festival blog thanks to our good friend and director, Todd E. Freeman, who’s film Cell Count is closing the festival on 20th May 2012. Todd will also be on the jury panel for the Panorama Section of the fest.
This year will be the 8th year Fantaspoa has been staged and the films included in the Fantaspoa International Fantastic Film Festival lineup include Yam Laranas’ The Road, Richard Powell’s Familiar (which Doc reviewed here), Zack Parker’s Scalene, Derek Franson’s Comforting Skin and Paulo Biscaia Filho’s Nervo Craniano Zero, just to name a few. Two great filmmakers will also be recognised for their contribution to cinema, Re-Animator‘s Stuart Gordon and Puppetmaster‘s David Schmoeller, who’s film Little Monsters will be having it’s world premiere at the festival. Both directors will be holding a Q+A at the festival too.
The Fantaspoa festival will be running from 4th May to 20th May 2012 with coverage starting on the 11th, so make sure you come and join HCF for Todd’s exclusive festival blog.
