Sitges: International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia 2014

Watch out, fantasy fans, here comes something great! For the already - and quiet impressive - 47th time the “International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia” is about to return to the great city of Sitges. bcn_sitges_Toni Villaró If you’re a lover of fantasy of all kinds you shouldn’t think twice about attending  this event. The Sitges edition is known for being the number one fantasy film festival in the world and has developed into an appreciated establishment. Since the first international week of sci-fi and horror in 1968 the festival has spread its wings and has become a more than reliable barometer when it comes to new and futuristic technologies and trends. From this year’s October 3rd to 12th visitors can benefit from encounters, exhibitions, screenings, presentations and Co. and get completely lost in the event’s surreal atmosphere. But Catalonia’s foremost film festival isn’t just a big excitement for interested spectators: since an international jury honors the best films, actors and filmmakers with the “Maria” award - plus the festival hosts several other award shows,too - the event is also of great importance for a professional audience. As a natural consequence of its high international reputation, each year the festival provides a popular meeting point for international VIPs. Sitges' guest list impresses with big names like Anthony Hopkins, Cameron Diaz, Jodie Foster, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Tony Curtis and many more. Did you know that even the master of direction himself, Mr. Quentin Tarantino, launched his first movie in the adorable little city on the Spanish coast-line back in the days? By now there really shouldn’t be any more arguments necessary to point out how great this event is ;-) One more: don't miss out on the annual "Zombiewalk" on which fans dress up in spooky outfits and scary make-up to create one bizarre get-together! FAST FACTS Location: Sitges (35km outside Barcelona) Dates: 3rd to 12th of October 2014 Website: sitgesfilmfestival.com
