Fantastic Planet Film Festival is dedicated to seeking out and encouraging bold new speculative films that explore imagined worlds, universes, and realities; celluloid glimpses of alternative futures, presents, and pasts. And to showcase this fantastic cargo of cinema to audiences in Sydney, Australia.
Now in it’s fifth year, and founded by the team behind Australia’s leading horror genre film event – A Night of Horror International Film Festival – Fantastic Planet showcases the latest in independent science fiction, fantasy, horror, thriller and cult cinema, and hosts a number of parties, forums, and special events.
In 2014, A Night of Horror will again be taking place in conjunction with Fantastic Planet Film Festival. Together the festivals provide Australia’s leading showcase of independent genre specific cinema. Combined, the fests screened over 100 films in 2013. Both festivals retain independent programs and their own specific award categories. The festival prides itself in presenting the work of independent filmmakers not only to enthusiastic audiences but also to leading media and industry professionals.
