"No matter where you go, there you are."


Watch the John Carpenter: Masterclass & Lifetime Achievement Award at Fantasia 2020

It seems appropriate that Fantasia’s first recipient of a virtual Cheval Noir Award would be legendary master of horror John Carpenter. Veteran Fantasia attendees lovingly recall that the Kentucky-raised multihyphenate writer/director/musician was one of the first major international guests to attend Fantasia, way back for the festival’s third edition in 1998 when Carpenter launched the international premiere of VAMPIRES with us.

Now Fantasia’s 2020 online Carpenter masterclass will take you back to that magical Fantasia moment, as well as other stops on his unrivalled genre express, from HALLOWEEN to THE FOG to ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK to THE THING to STARMAN to THEY LIVE and all the rest. They will also explore his recent resurgence as a touring musician and play for you his latest spine-tingling single.

Can you think of any better way to spend Fantasia’s opening weekend than with the great John Carpenter himself?
