Welcome to a fantasy film festival showing in Rotterdam, in my head, maybe one day in reality. Fuck these lame expensive outdoor cinema fools!
Pay money to see good movies or stay at home and download like granny does. We choose the best and most unique locations – on the river, in a disused silo, top floor of a skyscraper, nuclear bunkers…
Plus one good thing about fantasy – it don’t rain!!
August 3 – 31, 5 euro per film unless stated. Free popcorn.
Compulsory trailer before all movies:
Everyday collection of shorts from local film makers, jan svankmajer, terry gilliam, david cronenberg, laser unicorns, big rocks etc
Focus on focus on interesting directors eg Refn / Seidl / Balabanov / Lanners.
Other routes… Seidl week, Weekend trilogies, Sunday Balabanovs (hmm maybe should have gone for Seidl Sundays oh well)
