Life can be categorized by its cyclical nature, as yearly trends come back to remind us the Earth has rotated around the sun one more time. These cycles are inevitable, and can be counted on more than your truest of friends. The return of Pumpkin Spice Lattes, the purveying joy of Christmas, tax season. Or, CJLO’s annual Funding Drive.

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.
