There is an episode about this festival in our archives as we talk about the audience and all the great films we showcased at this event.

The theme of the August 2018 SCI-FI/FANTASY FEEDBACK Film Festival in Toronto was “Disorientation”.

Each film was about something not on the up in up in a physical or emotional way.

The 1st festival of the FALL was a major success. Only a few empty seats despite this festival being held on the opening night of TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) in Toronto.

The Fantasy/Sci-Fi Festival is always an amazing event that brings on a whole new crowd. There is a certain audience for this type of genre.

We also showed the best three FAN FICTION films of 2018. And the audience was really taken by them. It makes me want to do more Fan Fiction festivals in the future.

All in all, a great night. We should have some amazing festivals to come for the rest of 2018.

See you at the festivals.
