At this 14th Fantasia International Film Festival I am delighted to welcome so many fans of a film tradition that transports us to faraway worlds in which the imagination reigns!
Congratulations to Fantasia’s organizers. They have succeeded in making this the biggest festival of its kind in North America. Our city’s renown as a cultural metropolis continues to grow thanks to the efforts of such dedicated individuals. Montréal is once again proud to offer them its support.
With over 100 feature films and 200 shorts produced in more than 20 countries, film lovers from Canada and abroad can be certain they will find much to enjoy during this event.
Have a great festival!
Mayor of Montréal
