The Fantasia International Film Festival, through its program of the Fantastiques week-ends du cinéma québécois, is proud to support emerging talents by each year offering over 50 000$ in prizes to short filmmakers from Quebec! Thanks to numerous and loyal partners and with the support of dedicated and enthusiastic jury members, the Fantastiques week-ends have offered 250 000$ in prizes in the last five years alone and this edition will be no exception.
To participate in this year’s Quebec selection and be eligible for the prize, all you need to do submit your short film via the Fantasia International Film Festival website and click on the option specific to Canadian films (link below). All genres are accepted and encouraged, whether they be fiction, documentary or animation. Note that only films presented as Montreal Premieres can be put in competition to win the 50 000$ prizes. Films that aren’t Montreal premieres can be selected to the festival but they’re not eligible to win.
