The UHF of the film world.

Beyond Fest, which this year runs September 27 to October 4, won't be announcing their full slate of films for 2018 until September 4 but the festival is rocking the movie news world today with a major announcement they are calling "Cronenberg with Cronenberg: A Retrospective of the New Flesh."


As the name suggests, the festival will be screening a plethora of David Cronenberg's films and as if that's not good enough, the man himself will be on hand for three of the screenings including a 30th anniversary screening of Dead Ringers where Cronenberg will be joined by fellow Canadian Howard Shore.


Cronenberg and other guests, including Geena Davis, Debie Harry and Jennifer Jason Leigh, will be attending throughout the festival.



Other films in the line-up include Rabid, Scanners and my personal favourite The Brood.


"Cronenberg with Cronenberg: A Retrospective of the New Flesh" is presented in collaboration with Telefilm Canada, the American Cinematheque's partner for the annual Canada Now film festival, and with the support of the Consulate General of Canada (I will take every opportunity to mention fellow Canucks!).

Full line-up of films below. For screening dates and times along with more information on the festival, visit the Beyond Fest website.
