The Festival’s official category includes films that navigate through various genres, including science-fiction, fantasy innovation, horror and thrillers among others. The Fantàstic selection includes commercial movies as well as auteur films. It also includes, out-of-competition, the Spanish premiere of the best international fantasy genre productions.
The official category includes:
- In-competition movies that are eligible for awards.
- The so-called Premieres, with important films that represent the good and the best in the current year’s fantasy genre production.
- The Official Méliès category, European films that aren’t eligible for the awards in the official category, but are for the Silver Méliès Award.
- The sub-section dedicated to in-competition fantasy short films.
Below is a list of films to be screened in this category during this years festival. Where possible we’ve included synopses, previews, reviews, and trailers along with our own random thoughts as to whether the film is going to make our “must see” list
