Je trépigne d'impatience à l'idée d'assister au prochain Festival Fantasia, mon festival de cinéma préféré au monde, qui a lieu au mois d'août et qui demeure, pour moi, le festival du genre le plus tourné vers son public et le plaisir de voir des films en gang.

Le festival Fantasia, bien entamé depuis plusieurs jours, enchante encore cette année par la rare cohésion que l’on peut observer entre son fidèle public et ses propositions cinématographiques. Les programmateurs y sont reçus comme des annonceurs de boxe, et un coup de poing opportun survenu à l’écran peut suffire pour faire éclater la salle en applaudissements et en cris de joie.
