The 21st edition of Paris' Etrange Festival came to a fiendish close last night, awarding prizes to four lucky films and leaving local genre-heads heartbroken with the knowledge that it's a full 51 weeks until next year's festivities.
Short film honors went Luke and Peter McCoubrey's The Grey Matter and Studio Rosto's animated freakout Splintertime, respectively.
We will have a couple interviews going up in the coming days, but if they do little to tide you over just remember, next year's festival's only 51 weeks away...
Over the course of eleven days, L'ÉTRANGE FESTIVAL 2015 has presented 7 World premieres, 2 International premieres, 9 European premieres and 37 French premieres, 2 "sold out" exclusive shows by The Residents and 3 "Cartes Blanches" to Guy Maddin, Benoît Delépine and Ben Wheatley.
On Sunday, September the 13th, L'ÉTRANGE FESTIVAL is thrilled to announce the Palmares for its 21st edition.
