In the year 20XX, humanity has almost come to an end. A tsunami of meteors bombarded the entire planet; remaining survivors are forced to kill for food and power. The meteorites contained a mysterious material causing certain death to anyone who encounters it. But in very rare cases, some humans survive the exposure and undergo a metamorphosis into horrific “meteorite beasts”. People call them 'ANOROC'. These new beings hunt and kill humans for their lifeforce and have become the enemy humanity has ever known. The Earth has one last defender against ANOROC; her name is 'LION-GIRL'. 

A modern exploitation film like no other, and featuring story and character design by legendary Manga artist, Go Nagai (Cutie Honey, Devilman, Mazinger Z), alongside glorious practical effects, gratuitous nudity, and an utterly unhinged story, Lion-Girl  is an outrageous sci-fi epic.

Join us as we close out FFFA in showstopping style with the World Premiere of LION-GIRL.
