Fantastic Film Festival is about ‘unhinged energy … or a film that makes you say WTF’

Hudson Sowada takes us inside the weird and wonderful world of Fantastic Film Festival Australia.

From naked screenings, cosmic queer sci-fi, gothic horror scares and razor-sharp satires, the Fantastic Film Festival Australia returns to Sydney (Ritz Cinema, Randwick) and Melbourne (Lido Cinemas, Hawthorn) with a selection of weird and wonderful cinematic offerings, from 21 April – 6 May 2022.

The Festival will open with the first screening of one of the most highly anticipated films of 2022, The Northman. We had a chat to festival director Hudson Sowada about what makes his one-of-a-kind event tick.
