Fantasia 2012 – Top 10 (11) Films of the Festival

I’ve had about one week to marinate on everything that happened during Fantasia 2012. I was no stranger to the festival scene, but in no way was I prepared for a festival the size of Fantasia, particularly the social aspect. I assumed that I would watch 3-4 movies a day and then write up 2-3 […]

ChickFlicking at Fantasia 2012 – Afro Tanaka Review (Nadia Sandhu)

We now interrupt comprehensive Fantasia Film Festival coverage from Matt Hodgson for a surprise installment of Chickflicking.  A surprise because neither of us was ready for a relationship comedy right smack in the middle of this genre filled festival line up.
