Guillermo del Toro to be honored at Fantasia International Film Festival

Posted on

The Fantasia International Film Festival has announced that it will honor both Pan’s Labyrinth filmmaker Guillermo del Toro and Japanese director Takashi Miike at this year’s event, which takes place in Montreal from July 14-Aug. 2. Del Toro will be presented with the Cheval Noir Award while Miike is to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award.

The festival, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary, has also announced some of the 130-plus films to be screened at this year’s event. These include the James Wan-produced Lights Out, the Argentinian horror film White Coffin, the Dee Wallace-starring horror-comedy Red Christmas, director Darren Lynn Bousman’s Abattoir, Jim Hosking’s bizarre The Greasy Strangler, and Hunt For the Wilderpeople — Taika Waititi’s follow-up to his much-loved vampire comedy, What We Do in the Shadows.
