As the punishing summer heat rises in Montreal, so too does the cool and eclectic collection of cinema presented by the Fantasia International Film Festival. A duration exceeding three weeks (July 17 to August 6), involving hundreds of features, shorts, repertory programming, Zappin' Parties and special events, can make Fantasia a tough beast to wrestle to the ground for either expert or neophyte.
As a kick-off to covering the fest, let Team ScreenAnarchy be your guide through the coming weeks as we offer 15 picks that should get your blood pumping with action cinema from Asia, melt your brain with weird ideas and images from Europe, or have a quiet drink with the dark muse of indie American horror.
