Fantasia Week One: A Weekly Recap of The Genre Film Festival

Once again, this year I am taking part in the virtual portion of the Fantasia Film Festival due to the circumstances. However, I am happy to see the theatrical component of the festival come back this year because there is nothing like a Fantasia audience for a film premiere. Quite honestly it is the only way to truly appreciate the festival in a room of other genre film lovers while keeping everyone safe under the current guidelines. In my theatrical experience the film that I got to see seemed lost amongst the audience I saw it with, and I ponder how it played out among the Fantasia audience. 
 

Fantasia 2021: The Premier Film Festival Heads Back to Theatres, Even Though It Never Left

This year the milestone 25th edition will find the fine balance of the in person experience, while following the government guidelines still in place (a virtual edition will also be available this year). Running from Aug. 5 - Aug.


Shazam Fest 2021 Reflections

The 15.5 edition of the Shazam Festival occurred over the weekend of July 9th through 11th, 2021. The idyllic site located near Ayer’s Cliff, Quebec was a beehive of activity compared to the much smaller festival that took place last year. To make up for lost time, the schedule was packed with an eclectic mix of shows; on the day this reporter was there, there was not much downtime between artists.
