Canada’s Fantasia Film Festival has announced a third and final wave of feature films, as well as details of its panels, talks, tributes and special events. 

This year’s virtual edition of the Montreal-based festival, running from August 20 to September 2, will include more than 100 features and more than 200 shorts. 

Among the latest titles added to the line-up are Vincent Paronnaud’s Hunted, getting its world premiere, Jorge Michel Grau’s Perdida, getting its international premiere, and Kiel McNaughton’s Indigenous action-comedy The Legend Of Baron To’A, which will be the closing night film. 

Special events scheduled for the festival include a masterclass with John Carpenter, who will also get the event’s Lifetime Achievement Award, a tribute to the late Stuart Gordon and a talk from Dennison Ramalho in conjunction with a tribute to the late Brazilian filmmaker José Mojica Marins.
