2016 marks the 20th anniversary of Montreal’s Fantasia Film Festival, the largest genre film festival in North America and one of the most prestigious in the world. To celebrate, the festival is going all-out this year with not only its standard gargantuan roster of films from all over the world (somewhere north of 130 features this year!), but also bringing in some very special guests. Guillermo del Toro is receiving the festival’s Cheval Noir award, and legendary Japanese director Takashi Miike is being given their Lifetime Achievement Award. Fantasia gets bigger and bigger every year, but even so this year’s anniversary program is insanely ambitious. Daily Grindhouse will be covering films screened at the festival throughout its run from July 15th to August 3rd.
