8th – 16th September 2017
One of MovieMaker Magazine’s 50 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee in 2017 and 2015, FilmQuest celebrates the majesty of genre filmmaking in the realms of fantasy, horror, sci-fi, and the beyond. Awarding filmmakers in 2016 with over $20,000 in awards and prizes, the festival continued to become a hotbed of the very best in genre filmmaking in the world, showcasing incredible talent, creating new friendships and collaborations, and proving to be a must-stop destination for filmmakers.
“Catering to audiences and professionals whose preferred form of expression is often relegated to the sidelines at major film gatherings, Martin’s curated space helps genre films leave obscurity and reach the eyeballs they are meant for. Of course, this is not to say that, as it gets bigger, FilmQuest will stop being weirdly wonderful and true to its niche. It just means more outsiders will be dying to join in the fun.”
