Starting next week, on may 4th and going until may, 20th, Porto Alegre will be the Latin American Capital of Genre Cinema. Fantaspoa – International Fantastic Film Festival of Porto Alegre, the biggest genre film festival of Latin America will be back for its 8th edition, with 17 days of pure cinephilia, exhibiting 150 films – including 87 features from 32 countries: 5 having their world première, 12 in national première and 43 in their Latin America première. The festival will also bring more than 35 guests, including the duo that will be getting a Career Achievement Award: David Schmoeller and Stuart Gordon. Schmoeller, in the occasion, will also have the première of his first feature in 14 years: “Little Monsters”.
The festival will open and close with two world premières: “Nervo Craniano Zero”, directed by Paulo Biscaia Filho will open the festival and “Cell Count”, directed by Todd E. Freeman will close it.
The Short Films Competition will exhibit a total of 51 films, including “Para Eu Dormir Tranquilo”, “Conto do Vento”, “Paths of Hate”, “Blackwater Gospel”; “Animal Control” and “La Casa Del Lago”.
Zombie Apocalypse is a competitive sidebar that has been put together to exhibit eight recent films with our beloved living dead, to show the richness in which these characters can be used on film. The highlights of this sections are “Portrait of a Zombie”, “A Little Bit Zombies” and “Di Ingon ‘Nato”.
Panorama will exhibit films that are not explicitly genre films, but that involve interesting themes or unusual situation. 11 titles will be part of this section: “The Maiden Danced to Death”, “Searching for Sonny”, “Kid-Thing”, “Brawler”, “El Ambulante”, “White Vengeance”, “Bad Ass”, “Pilgrim Song”, “El Infierno”, “Machete's Language” and “Happily Never After”. These films compose a Panorama of some of the most interesting and unusual films that are being made nowadays. Some have been played on the most renowned film festivals throughout the globe and it’s especially interesting for us to start this new sidebar in Fantaspoa this year.

From Chile we’ll be presenting “El Circuito de Román”, winner of the special jury award at Valdivia International Film Festival; from Venezuela, the multi-awarded “La Hora Cero”; from Costa Rica, “El Fin”, a unique comedy about the last day on earth; and from Spain comes Carne Cruda, a comedy about cannibals that pay homage to the Italian horror classics.
