We excited to announce the the Fantasy Film Festival in Paris - Le Festival du Film du Fantasme! An opportunity for regional and international filmmakers to release their imagination.

The Fantasy Film Festival team wants to meet, inspire and support the next pioneers of Fantasy, Science fiction and drama genres.

The Fantasy Film Festival is the first of its genre in Paris.

The FFF Lab exists to provide huge opportunities for filmmakers, producers and festival goers discussions, feedback on your work, workshops, and future support for your project.

The Fantasy Film Festival accepts Shorts, Features, Animations, Scripts, Works in Development, Web Series, music videos and VR.

Our focus will be to provide live, interactive entertainment throughout the entire festival. We want people to feel like there are things to do and see at every turn.

Aside from all of the above, you will be able to forge connections with your attending peers interested and working in Sci-Fi and Fantasy. It will be a day packed with insight, all developed so you may take your work, and ultimately your career, further!

Lancé en juin 2021, le Festival des Fantasmes s'organisera cette fois-ci physiquement, à Paris, pour permettre à un grand nombre de personnes de découvrir ou redécouvrir cet univers, mais également aux cinéastes, producteurs et festivaliers d'échanger sur leur film.

Le Fantasy Film Festival, ce sont aussi des courts-métrages, des longs métrages, des animations, des scripts, des séries Web, des clips musicaux, de la réalité virtuelle ou encore des documentaires. L'objectif est de fournir des divertissements interactifs, tout au long du festival pour faire des choses, et les voir à chaque tournant. La vocation consiste à s'intéresser à tous les aspects de notre société sans a priori. Histoire d'amour, homosexualité, sexe, drames, désillusions, passions, contradictions, sans tabous !

Si le fantastique fascine, le fantasme effraie et fanatise à la fois. Il s'immisce sur des plateaux télé, s'expose dans les clips, dans la publicité, se télécharge sur les nouvelles technologies et le numérique. Le rêve n'est justement pas dans les rouages des chaînes de fabrication car on fantasme. On désire aussi ce qui nous manque, et l'on finit par insulter ce qu'on ne peut avoir avec envie et rage.

    Thank you Chris! Amazing talent!

  • There's nothing better than being able to be present at the festival that selected your short film. The fact that the FANTASY FILM FESTIVAL takes place in Paris allowed me to be there from start to finish. I was SO hoping that my short film THE WHISPERING CHIMERAS (LE MURMURE DES CHIMERES) would be selected because this festival is, by far, the one I most wanted my film to attend. I met people there leading to fascinating discussions with actors, producers, directors, composers...
    And receiving the BEST DRAMA SHORT AWARD was even more incredible and wonderful. Because it not only highlighted my film but also recognized the hard work of my entire Crew on this project. So, thank you to the organizers of the FFF, always caring for us, the lucky ones selected. Thank you also to the members of the jury, always listening. Most of all, thank you to this Festival for offering a serene place where you can present your work to very enthusiastic spectators!!! Respect eternal.
