FANTASTIC FILM FESTIVAL AUSTRALIA 2020

THE REVIEWS

FESTIVAL FEATURE
By Charlie David Page
21st February 2020

Dystopian zombie mutants, reality-bending psychological terror, dreamlike animations, and a healthy dose of gore - the inaugural Fantastic Film Festival Australia (20th February - 4th March 2020) has announced its full program of strange and surreal, boundary-pushing and bizarre cinema screening at Lido Cinemas, Hawthorn (VIC) and Ritz Cinemas, Randwick (NSW).

Offering up its own distinct perspective on genre and alternative cinema, FFFA marries (un)guilty pictorial pleasures with subversive storytelling that hacks away at conventions, unearthing core truths that are typically shied away from: from hard-hitting sociocultural commentary, to unique perspectives on what's widely taken for granted.
