    According to festival directors João Fleck and Nicolas Tonsho, Fantaspoa’s program becomes harder and harder to lock in every year. “In 2023, we saw once again a significant increase in film entries – both in number and overall quality of the projects. We received over 800 entries, which is a huge figure for a genre film festival, especially one in Latin America. We are very proud to say that over 80% of our program has come directly from FilmFreeway entries, pointing towards a growing industry interest in Fantaspoa.”
