Fantaspoa 2020: Brazilian Genre Announces Digital Festival Lineup, Completely Free For The Locals
Good news for genre fans in Brazil. The delayed digital version of this year's festival is gearing up for next week's launch on the 24th and the complete lineup was announced today.
The better news for genre fans in Brazil is that the festival will be free of charge and streamed on a Brazilian streaming platform called Darkflix. Each title will have a view cap of 5,000 and will be geo-locked to Brazil but that's pretty amazing for a country that has been through so much these past few months. 
47 feature films will grace this year's lineup. There looks to be a mini retrospective trio of films from Nabwana IGG (Who Killed Captain Alex? Bad Black and Crazy World). I see some familiar LatAm titles as well; Diablo Rojo PTY, Matar al dragon and Skull: The Mask.
The complete lineup of films at Fantaspoa and the festival trailer can be found below. 
Following the announcement of its first sixteen titles, Brazil’s Fantaspoa Fantastic Film Festival is proud to announce the full program for its upcoming sixteenth edition, which will be held online and completely free of charge. The bold move is courtesy of an unprecedented partnership with Darkflix, a Brazilian video streaming service aimed at fantastic genre productions.
Fantaspoa 2020’s full lineup will consist of 47 feature films from 29 different countries and 89 shorts from 25 countries – totaling more than 130 films from 40 countries. The festival’s full lineup will be available for free on the Brazilian streaming platform Darkflix between July 24 and August 2, 2020 – with each title having a maximum cap of 5,000 views. While all films are geo-blocked to Brazil, the festival’s livestreams (which include talent and filmmaker Q&As, celebrity masterclasses, lectures, and more) will be available for free to the whole world.
Between its free films for Brazilian audiences and free events accessible to all, Fantaspoa now proudly hosts the largest online initiative of any film event in Latin America – and hopes that its attempts to combat social isolation through digital gatherings will be seen as a small but valiant way to help fight this unprecedented pandemic.
The full program, including all short films and feature films of the sixteenth edition of Fantaspoa is now available at
