Filmax International

For a few years now, Spain is one of the favourite spots for all the lovers of Fantastic Cinema, almost exclusively thanks to the impulse of the production company of Julio Fernandez, Filmax, and its branches Fantastic Factory and Discovery. In a few years the company has managed to gather a collection of solid talents (Jaume Balaguero, Nacho Cerda, …) and even to attract directors from over the Ocean like Brian Yuzna, Jack Sholder and Stuart Gordon. The festival, thus, has decided to pay homage to the Barcelonian production house, which has made a great start, at the borders of the Mediterranean Sea, to fill the void left with the disappearance of Hammer.
