This is the 14th year for the Saskatoon Fantastic Film Festival, formerly known as The Dark Bridges Film Festival (though they revived that name a couple of years ago and run two festivals a year now).
I had been interviewing Festival Director John Allison almost every year since the festival’s inception over a decade ago, so I thought it might be fun to switch it up a bit. Rather than go too deep into what the festival is all about, I wanted to know what the experience of one of their film programmers is like. Jeff and I talk about that as well as a couple of his picks for the festival this year.
As a side note, I’ve seen four of the (29) movies now and I mostly like what I’m seeing. I say this every year, but if you can’t go to a bunch, just pick any random film or two and go. You’re sure to have a unique film experience. You can find more info and watch some of the trailers at www.skfilmfest.ca.
Enjoy! And thanks to Jeff and John for making this interview happen! This year’s festival runs from November 17th to 25th at the Broadway.
