Fantasia Fest is now well underway with some of the worlds finest genre movies on show. This year the festival is making the leap in to cyberspace and holding its first virtual festival in light of the global pandemic.

It has now been announced that Stranger Things and Ghostbusters: Afterlife star Finn Wolfhard has been added to the bill for a virtual artist talk.

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
