Paracinema Film Festival 2019

“Anything goes!” so cries the motto of Paracinema, the festival dedicated to films and genres outside the mainstream. This year we have a heady mix of giallo, monsters, time travel heists, horror hosts, resurrection, demonic possession, documentary, Uwe Boll, Drag Queens and Freddy Krueger!

Paracinema is not born, or made in a lab. Paracinema is not the fever dream of a mad king, nor a nightmare of a dying angel. Paracinema is the work of a small group of people who have spent a long time watching films in search of that elusive Paracinema feel. A big thanks to Darrell B, Adam C, Alex D and Peter M for their sterling work! See you on the other side!
