Fantasia Fest announces its second wave

(Image credit: Fantasia International Film Festival)

It's a new age for film festivals. While Fantasia International Film Festival has been forced, like many others, to shift to a digital only format, that doesn't mean it hasn't continued to bring it with its lineup announcements. 

The experience of watching from home might be a little different, but the team has done everything they can to ensure that the show goes on. Unfortunately, that does include geo-locking the festival. You can learn more about the new experience on Fantasia's website.

If you missed the announcements, the festival's first wave boasts a ton of exciting titles like The Reckoning, Undergods, Lucky and more. The second wave brings us additional fun surprises like The Dark and the Wicked, Alone, and The Block Island Sound. But those are just the tip of the iceberg. 

Check out the festival's full second wave announcement below.
