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.



Event Screening of restored version of W Friedkin The Exorcist: the church was full

William Friedkin's The Exorcist was a huge box office hit when it came out in the US, one day after christmas, December 26th 1973, and a surprise for Warner: the genre films were ranked low in studios hierarchy at the time. See the film which broke the the rules and set new ones.

The guests of the festivals were treated with the premiere screening in the world to happen in a church (a temple to be precise) ...and it was full!, another success for the festival director, Daniel Cohen, who had dreamt it with William Friedkin last year (Friedkin was guest of the previous edition)

The pastor and the mayor made it possible in june during a power btrainstorming session were the decision was made to make this dream happen. It s also part of the towns and temple efforts to save the church and raise funds #sauvonsguillaume

The Oscar Academy will organize an hommage screening in LA for the  45th anniversary October 22, 7:30 p.m at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater, Beverly Hills with Oscar-nominated director William Friedkin and Oscar-nominated actress Ellen Burstyn.

The trailer ambiance and the film itself are still totally top notch and fit for today's audiences!
