Apocalypse Later International Fantastic Film Festival
Discover new visions in horror and sci-fi at the inaugural Apocalypse Later International Fantastic Film Festival. The brainchild of local author and film critic Hal Astell, the curated festival features 18 horror and sci-fi shorts from around the globe, as well as local creations from Michael Giannantonio and Taylor Geiss. The curtain rises at 5 p.m. on Saturday, October 15, at Phoenix Center for the Arts, 1202 North Third Street.
“I chose ‘fantastic’ because it has a double meaning — all the films I screen are great, but they’re also from the wide tradition of fantasy,” he says. “There are traditional films and experimental ones. There are comedies and thrillers, things to make you laugh, things to make you jump, and things to make you think.”
Admission is $10 and includes free popcorn. Visit alfilmfest.com for more information, including synopses of the showcased films.
