2008 Festival Wraps Up with Record Attendance, Delighted Filmmakers and Rave Reviews!


Toronto After Dark Film Festival 2008 wrapped up eight thrilling nights of new horror, sci-fi, action and cult cinema last week, setting new records. Over 8,500 enthusiastic fans attended the festival which ran Oct 17-24, a huge 30% jump on the previous year, and double the size of the event that started just two years ago! Highlights of the 3rd Annual Festival included sell-out screenings of LET THE RIGHT ONE IN, REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA, TOKYO GORE POLICE and I SELL THE DEAD a record over 30 attending filmmakers on stage to introduce their films including Larry Fessenden (LAST WINTER) and Angus Scrimm (PHANTASM), packed nightly social events, rave reviews for the films programmed, and of course the ever-popular Zombie Walk! Countless film sites, big and small, covered our 2008 fest, but one local Toronto blog, had easily the most comprehensive fan coverage, with reviews, photos and video clips from every single screening of the fest.
