    This is an example of a festival run by fans and made for fans. Your film will be screened to a very engaged audience of 1500 people in a perfect outdoors location. The Fantos team is not only very engaged and helpful but also very knowledgeable about genre films. 10 out of 10.

    Fantosfreak is one of the best Fantastic Short Film Festivals in Spain, if not the best among those that are exclusively for shorts. The screenings are amazing, open air (with good image and sound quality in spite of being open air), in front of a crowd over 1.000 people, and they have created a very funny ritual of presenting the films with their own filmed gags full of freak humour. The short films selection is always very good, and quality and entertainment come always before PC shorts for them. Congratulations to this festival!

    We're so glad to have been part of the show!
    We couldn't attend the festival itself unfortunately, but we wish to thank both the selection committee, festival crew and attending audience for our selection and award.
    Can't wait to receive the trophy!
