Beserk Does Monster Fest! Posted on 6 Mar 12:00 , 0 comments
Happy Monday! After a fun filled weekend, I skipped (yes really) into Beserk HQ this morning to some fantastic news, we are sponsoring Monster Fest 2017! Beserk has sponsored Monster Fest in previous years but this year I, Kitty Beserk, get to indulge in my love of all things film, spooky and monster-iffic with the Beserk team. Just in case anybody was wondering, Cthulhu is my favourite by far!
What is Monster Fest?
From the Monster fest Website:
‘Founded in 2011, Monster Fest is a mix of Premieres, international festival favourites, challenging new discoveries and curated repertory sidebars alongside industry-focused events such as panels and master classes with renowned international guests, and a special emphasis on supporting emerging Australian genre film talent through the festival and beyond. Under the banner of ‘Monster Fest Presents’, we host screenings and events throughout the year, including theatrical engagements of Monster Pictures titles and in partnership with other distributors in the Australian genre community.
Monster Fest is about blackened cinemas with awe-struck patrons sitting on the edge of their seats. It’s about white knuckles, cold sweats, nervous gasps, gut-wrenching laughs and screams in the dark, but most of all Monster Fest is about people – people who love cinema with bite, a community of like-minded souls from every corner of life, united by a passion for the most twisted imaginings on the planet.
It is dangerous, delirious and delightful. It is about moving with wild abandon into the darkened recesses of cinematic imagination and doing it with others. It’s about leaving your living room, entering the cinema and daring to live it large with films that are larger than life itself.’
In Short, Monster Fest is about indulging in your love of all things horror, gothic, steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy and more!
Monster Fest holds their annual big film festival in Melbourne but don’t despair, you can find snippets of Monster Fest all over Australia leading up to the Grand Finale in November – The Monster Fest Film Festival!
