Fantasia regrets to announce that we will not be able to screen the full feature-film version of BEAUTY WATER this year.
Please accept our apologies. To diminish your disappointment, the producers have offered a 20-min. short film edit that we are happy to present, free of charge.
In a society as obsessed with physical appearance as modern South Korea, ugliness is a fate worse than death. For overweight, unsightly Yaeji, though, a fast but suspicious solution to her woes may soon make her wish she were dead. Beauty is skin-deep, but body horror chills to the bone! Director Cho Kyung-hun’s CG-animated shocker BEAUTY WATER (adapted from the very popular webcomic), puts a very high price on prettiness!

Estonian stop-motion shock comedy THE OLD MAN: THE MOVIE is a hair-raising hellride of back-country horrors, gross-out gags, and rural surrealism!
As Nicholas and David find out, just because it’s make-believe doesn’t mean it’s not real! A wild and colourful fantasy with a special point to make.
