Storyline

For 11 years, the FantAsia Film Festival in Montreal has been the premiere showcase in North America of fantasy, horror and action films from around the world. Every July, sold out crowds of 900 line up around the block before each screening; the festival itself lasts approximately 3 weeks. Shot during the 2 year of the festival in 1997, In the Belly of the Beast chronicles the intense struggles that five filmmakers in attendance went through to complete their films. Crew rebellions, corporate embezzlers and bankrupt studios are just a few of the memories conjured up during candid interviews, while the camera captures the latest challenge: the public acceptance - or rejection - of their films.

Trivia

The interview with Montreal filmmaker Demetri Estdelacropolis was unintentional. Director Chisholm had interviewed several fans in attendance at random throughout the festival, and believed Estdelacropolis was one until he identified himself midway through his on-camera interview. See more »

Honest documentary
14 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

I rented Jim Van Bebber's mess on Manson and I found myself pleasantly surprised by this documentary. My night wasn't totally ruined after all. Very honest, it has it's flaws, but pretty interesting to see the behind the scenes of that film festival called Fantasia. The directors of "Gun for Jennifer" were really candid and funny, even with everything that happened to them. Richard Stanley is always too brilliant ...I have to say though that the director of what seems to be a major piece of crap, "Subconcious Cruelty", looks like he needs a major wake up call, or a big kick in the head! I can't believe that someone as talented as Nacho Cerda works with that pseudo director!
