Hundreds of Beavers – Watch the trailer for the silent supernatural epic

Hundreds of Beavers will have its Canadian premiere at the Fantasia International Film Festival. Hundreds of Beavers will screen July 28th & 31st at the Salle J.A. De Sève as part of the 2023 edition of Fantasia.

In this silent supernatural epic, a drunken applejack salesman is thrust into the frigid wilderness. Can he go from Zero to Hero, become North America’s greatest fur trapper, and defeat hundreds of beavers?

Reuniting the team that brought Lake Michigan Monster to Fantasia in 2019, Hundreds of Beavers stars Ryland Brickson Cole Tews as the intrepid hero of this frostbitten inventive epic, co-written by Tews and director Mike Cheslik.

Hundreds of Beavers made its world premiere at Fantastic Fest and has emerged as one of the year’s most unexpected gems, earning critical acclaim at festivals around the globe, including Fantaspoa, the Cinequest Film & Creativity Festival, Night Visions, and the Atlanta Film Festival.

Celebrated Canadian experimental filmmaker Guy Maddin and longtime inspiration for the filmmakers shared his praise: “Steroidally swollen with gags and smarts positively bucktoothed with goofiness, and gorgeous with world-building invention”.

The filmmakers have taken home a number of awards including Best Narrative Feature at the Kansas City Film Festival International, the Oxford Film Festival, the Capital City Film Festival, and the Wyoming International Film Festival. Cheslik took home Best Director at Wyoming and the Phoenix Film Festival, as well as Best Comedy Feature at Midwest Weirdfest. At Mexico City’s Morbido Film Festival, Hundreds of Beavers won the coveted Bronze Skull Award.
