Fantaspoa 2018 Award Winners and Wrap Up!

Fantaspoa

From the official press release for Fantaspoa:

Between May 17th and June 3rd, the 14th edition of Fantaspoa transformed the city of Porto Alegre in the world’s capital of genre films. With over 100 guests from around the globe, the event brought together some of the most talented and impressive voices of modern fantastic films, as well as lifetime achievement awardees who played pivotal roles in the inspiration of today’s young filmmakers. In addition to more than 120 film screenings, Fantaspoa hosted numerous Q&A’s, masterclasses, workshops, screenings with live music, and two special parties – a lusty Opening Night event based on Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut and a Closing Night soiree on a three-story yacht, which took its revelers deep into the city’s massive port.

In addition to the festival’s massive success, the main innovation of the 2018 edition was its new production market, FantasMercado, in which 16 Latin American filmmakers pitched their projects and many deals were closed. At the market, Fantaspoa’s own production arm, Fantaspoa Produções, partnered with Dallas Sonnier’s Cinestate and Fangoria Films to come onboard Skull – The Máscara de Anhnagá, a project from Kapel Furman’s Infravermelho Produções.

The festival itself tallied over 9,000 screening attendees and – including events and visitors to its Frankenstein Exhibition, which celebrated 200 years of Mary Shelley’s immortal monster – welcomed more than 20,000 attendees. The festival’s main events were held in Cinemateca Capitólio, a stunning 90-year-old cinema.

On the night of June 3rd, Fantaspoa’s closing night film, Pedra da Serpente, by the first-time Brazilian filmmaker Fernando Sanches, was screened to a sold-out audience. Before the screening, an awards presentation took place and the year’s winners were announced by festival director João Fleck (see below for details).

In addition to the awards, Fantaspoa’s distribution arm, FantasFilms, was launched in that same night.

The newly-launched company will team with Marcelo de Souza’s Mares Filmes with the plan of distributing roughly 20 films per calendar year to Brazilian cinemas, with all films selected coming exclusively from the festival itself. “The goal of company,” as stated by directors João Fleck and Nicolas Tonsho, “is to bring some of our curatorship and love for genre films to the rest of Brazil.” Sixteen titles were announced that evening (see below), with the remaining to be revealed next month at the 22nd edition of Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival.

In addition to their Brazilian offices, FantasFilms will have a branch in Europe. Konstantinos Koutsoliotas and Elizabeth E. Shuch’s Melancholy Star will work as a sales agents for the shingle, focusing on unique projects, such as Hypnos and Pedra da Serpente.
