The major Brazilian festival has a typically expansive selection of frightful features in store.

This year’s Fantaspoa Fantastic Film Festival will be held at four theatrical venues–including one dedicated entirely to short films–from April 13-30 in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Opening night will be a 100th-anniversary tribute to Wallace Worsley’s Lon Chaney-starring classic THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME, which will be screened with a new soundtrack by Argentinian guitar virtuoso Germán Suane. The closing-night film will be the world premiere of Konstantinos Koutsoliotas’ Lovecraftian monster musical MINORE, and the recipient of Fantaspoa 2023’s Career Achievement Award will be veteran filmmaker Mark L. Lester, who will screen his action favorites COMMANDO, CLASS OF 1984 and SHOWDOWN IN LITTLE TOKYO. The fest poster seen below was created by filmmaker Elizabeth Schuch.

According to festival director João Fleck and Nicolas Tonsho, “In 2023, we saw once again a significant increase in film entries–both in number and overall quality of the projects. We received over 800 entries, which is a huge figure for a genre film festival, especially one in Latin America. We are very proud to say that over 80 percent of our program has come directly from FilmFreeway entries, pointing towards a growing industry interest in Fantaspoa.”
