Strasbourg European Fantastic Film Festival

The Strasbourg European Fantastic Film Festival was founded in 2008 by Les Films du Spectre and today is one of the most comprehensive genre events in France. Dedicated to broadly-defined fantastic cinema – fantasy, horror, sci-fi, thrillers, animation and so forth – it has never ceased to innovate. The Festival has become a major platform for eclectic programming that includes independent, auteur, and studio films, documentaries, and heritage revivals, to name but a few, drawing a diverse range of audiences. The Festival showcases both new talent and established directors, and other industry professionals of genre cinema.

Past guests include Lamberto Bava, Catherine Breillat, Marina De Van, Ruggero Deodato, Lucky Mckee, Agnès Merlet, Caroline Munro, Philippe Nahon, Brian Yuzna, Roger Corman, Edith Scob, George Romero and Mick Garris.
As an affiliated member of the European Fantastic Film Festivals Federation, we hold the Méliès d’Argent competitions for European films in tandem with some of Europe’s most outstanding genre festivals, such as Amsterdam, Brussels, Espoo, Leeds, Lund, Neuchâtel, Sitges and Trieste.

The Festival also offers many side events, further attracting different publics: one of the largest zombie walks in Europe with 3 500 participants, master classes, the Fantastic Village, children’s workshops, conferences, exhibitions, book and posters signings and so forth.
