The festival tours 8 cities in August and September: Munich, Stuttgart, Nuremberg, Frankfurt, Cologne, Dortmund, Hamburg and Berlin. Approximately 75 full length features and a number of short films are presented each year. Most of them German premieres, many are World or European premieres. In addition to an annual selection of the best short films the genre has to offer, the festival presents animation, black comedy, science fiction and a program of the best pan-Asian films in FOCUS ASIA. Directors such as Takashi Miike, Ryuhei Kitamura, Andrew Lau and the Pang brothers have long been introduced to Germany through FANTASY FILMFEST, and titles such as THE EYE, ICHI THE KILLER, OLD BOY, SYMPATHY FOR MR. VENGEANCE, CASSHERN, GODZILLA: FINAL WARS, JU-ON and MUSA are part of the German landscape now.
