Fantasia Festival 2020: Premier Genre Film Festival is what you need to beat the heat

There are many unanswered questions in these uncertain times. This was the case when the city of Montreal decided to postpone their summer festivals, forcing many festival organizers to return to the drawing board. This is to say that I am happy that the 24th edition of the Fantasia Film Festival, the premier genre festival, will be taking place virtually, with the titles being accessible online. Even though I am going to miss the atmosphere of the Concordia theatre halls filled with the audience alongside the CJLO DJ’s, the meows, and the experience of Montreal’s downtown scene, the cinephile in me can’t wait for this year's Fantasia Film Festival happening from August 20th to September 2nd.
