The Fantasia International Film Festival has announced a special live virtual artist talk with actor/writer/director Finn Wolfhard. Check out the details below to learn more about this opportunity.
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 Pinnochio, 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 https://youtu.be/0Ta0ZBXHMI8.
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.
