Frequently asked questions

Wait. What is Fantastic Film Festival Australia?

A home for mind-breakers, trend-setters, razor-walkers, loose-wires, truth-talkers, trailblazers and envelope-pushers, Fantastic Film Festival Australia comes to Lido Cinemas (VIC) and Ritz Cinemas (NSW) from February 20. We're a film festival celebrating genre and alternative cinema from around the globe; cinema that is subversive and thought-provoking, outside-of-the-box and a little bit wild.
