    Fantasia 2020 : The Columnist, North American Premiere

    With a premise so ripe in this modern age that we are, quite frankly, surprised it's taken so long for someone to make it, THE COLUMNIST proves it's definitely been worth the wait. Director Ivo van Aart and writer Daan Windhorst know that this story needs to be handled with both wit and sheer terror, and they've pulled it off beautifully, making a rare socially conscious (and deliciously fun) revenge thriller.

    Fantasia 2020 : Lucky, International Premiere

Her self-help books aren't selling as well as they used to, and one night a masked intruder breaks into the house she shares with her husband Ted (Dhruv Uday Singh). Worse, Ted is curiously unconcerned about the incident, speaking nonchalantly as if she just has to accept it, while an investigator says she is lucky she got away with it. To add insult to injury, the assailant reappears again and again, continuing to terrorize...
