Silver Melies Winners (2018-2019)
The unfair thing about the Méliès is that you can’t watch the other festivals’ winners because those can’t be in competition again. So we decided to correct this and show you all the Silver Méliès winners of the Fantastic Federation’s main festivals in one single screening. So here is the cream of the crop of European cinema from the cycle 2018-2019. And if you like it, we could even, y’know, do it again next year… so we’re counting on you!
