« On trouve vraiment de tout au festival Fantasia 2010 »

The Gazette
“With 100,000 tickets sold during the 21-day festival, attendance was up over last year”

“It’s that time of year again. Montreal’s Fantasia Film Festival … has come to an end. Sure, I’ll cherish the extra sleep. But my days will seem lifeless in comparison to the fantastical international treasures the festival offers.”

“My all-too-brief stint at the Fantasia film festival came and went in a blink. But my God, there were some wicked treats in the mix.”

“This year saw record crowds for the event, with 44 percent of the screenings completely sold out.”

“A raging success this year across the board”
“It’s pleasing to hear … that they sold 10% more tickets than last year: obviously, the festival’s inevitable growth is followed by its faithful and ever increasing audience … a definite proof to the powers that be that Fantasia means business and should be taken even more seriously when the time comes to provide funds for the next year’s edition…”

“The Fantasia Festival’s 2010 edition, its 14th, was a resounding success, with more sell-out screenings than ever and special events that can only be considered coups … It’ll be hard for organizers to top this year’s edition of the Fantasia Festival, but with next year being its 15th, it’s bound to be bigger and better than ever. “

Little White Lies
“It’s like everything North American alt. pop culture always claimed to be, but bilingual. French and English speaking fan boys and girls queue up for hours to squeeze into cult screenings”

Sound On Sight
“I would like to thank everyone at Fantasia for putting together the greatest genre film fest in the world. “

Briques du Neige
“I will miss having the opportunity to see one great film after another, night after night.”

“All in all, another fantastic year. One more fully-connecting roundhouse kick to all the other pretender film festivals out there, reminding them that Fantasia is boss!”

“The range of films on offer for audiences is just staggering”

The Gazette
“Fantasia’s highest-profile year ever”

Active Anime
“Fantasia Festival is North America’s premiere and largest genre film festival, taking place in the city of Montreal, and was the first member of the European Fantastic Film Festivals Federation outside of Europe.”

Sound on Sight
“Famous for being the largest genre film festival in North America, Fantasia is packed with Canadian, North American and worldwide feature-length premieres as well as shorts.”

“Fantasia was one step ahead of all other genre film fests in picking up some extraordinary films.”

“I am addicted”

The Cult of Ghoul
“best genre film festival in the world”

“Every year, we begin Fantasia dizzy with pleasure.”

    Now I’ll go over and check out some of those blogs I hadn’t found before.
