This year the Sitges – International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia (Oct 6-16, 2022) is presenting a diverse and daring lineup, symptomatic of the excellent state of recent fantastic genre filmmaking. Among the almost 200 feature films that make up this 55th edition, you will find both long-standing fantastic genre masters as well as promising up-and-coming filmmakers. From October 6th to 16th, the seats of the Auditori, Prado, Retiro, Tramuntana and Escorxador will once again be abuzz with the passion and enthusiasm of Festival fans.
The second annual ‘WOMAN IN FAN’ program for the promotion of female fantastic genre creators will be taking place at this year’s Festival with numerous activities, dedicated both to the historical recognition of the work done by benchmark women filmmakers as well as to a professional stimulus for women who are presently exploring the fantastic genre. A large number of female guests will also be participating at the upcoming Sitges Film Festival in a program open to debate and reflection on the opportunities available to women in the fantastic film industry.
Within this context of recognizing women in fantastic genre, director, programmer, producer and film critic Kier-La Janisse will present the updated and expanded version of her work House of Psychotic Women, which celebrates its tenth anniversary this year. She will also offer a Masterclass where she will discuss her career in genre films.
