    Fantastic Fest Shorts Preview: Fredrik S. Hana’s Seaside Scare, “AUTUMN HARVEST”

    The winner of Fantastic Fest’s 2013 Short Fuse Program, Norwegian filmmaker Fredrik S. Hana returns to Austin this year with for the World Premiere of his atmospheric seaside tale AUTUMN HARVEST. His latest is a change of setting—the winning ANGST, PISS AND DRID was a squalid, interior work of human horror, while AUTUMN HARVEST is more ethereal and nature-based—but maybe not pace. Hana is clearly focused on sensory cinema, and like several of the 2014 short films (of which FANGORIA is a proud sponsor), unfolds largely dialogue-free.

    “THE EDITOR” (TIFF Movie Review)

    For anyone raised on bleary-eyed marathons of VHS and DVD rentals, the five lunatics known as Astron-6 have been a delightful, new lurid pleasure. Through films like FATHER’S DAY and MANBORG, they’ve developed a signature tone, often pitched somewhere between parody and homage. They clearly love bargain bin trash movies. They just love laughing at them as well, and their movies toe the line between those two extremes. THE EDITOR is their latest and by far most ambitious feature, which applies the Astron-6 treatment to the giallo. It’s kind of a perfect mix, given that gialli tend to be stylistically gorgeous and magically, hilariously dumb in just the right ways. And the guys clearly know the genre well. THE EDITOR is not simply an Argento homage. Even flicks like HITCH HIKE get a moment in the spotlight.

    FANGORIA Sponsors Fantastic Fest 2014 Shorts Programs; Lineup Announced!

    Short Films are one of the most thrilling aspects of a festival. Paired with features, or unspooling in programs, theses bursts of creative energy often introduce international filmmakers worth celebrating, whose strange ideas are worth discussing. Sad then, the short film conversation can often remain at festivals or in industry circles. In hoping to change that, even a bit, FANGORIA is quite proud to be the official sponsor of the Fantastic Fest 2014 Shorts Programs.
