British Columbian actor and musician Finn Wolfhard burst onto the world stage in the culture-shifting Netflix series STRANGER THINGS. With subsequent performances in the IT films, THE GOLDFINCH, THE TURNING, and THE ADDAMS FAMILY, among others, and forthcoming roles in Jason Reitman’s GHOSTBUSTERS: AFTERLIFE and Guillermo del Toro and Mark Gustafson’s recently announced PINOCCHIO, Wolfhard has solidified his standing as a major international talent.

Now, at the age of 17, he’s completed his debut as a writer/director, the clever character-driven comedy short NIGHT SHIFTS, premiering in our lineup this year. To celebrate the launch of his move into storytelling, Fantasia will be presenting a live virtual artist talk with Finn Wolfhard, in conversation with none other than Jay Baruchel, on Saturday, August 29 at 2 PM EDT, free of charge and accessible worldwide.

This event does not require registration and will be held exclusively on Fantasia’s YouTube channel at

The Fantasia International Film Festival celebrates its 24th edition as a virtual event accessible to movie lovers across Canada this month, with a wild assortment of scheduled screenings, panels, and workshops taking place online from August 20 through September 2, 2020. The decision to launch a digital edition of the famed genre festival was born from Fantasia’s desire to keep the health and safety of its attendees a top priority during the current global health crisis, while still offering daring, much-needed new genre entertainment to residents of Canada and supporting the breakout filmmakers of the year.

The festival opened with a special screening of Neil Marshall’s THE RECKONING, starring Charlotte Kirk, and awarded John Carpenter with a Lifetime Achievement award while offering a special masterclass hosted by the horror luminary. All events, panels, and talks organized by the festival are accessible worldwide and free to attend.
