Montreal’s legendary Fantasia International Film Festival is North America’s largest fantasy / horror film event and one of the most influential fantastic film festivals in the world. It is where Hideo Nakata’s RINGU was introduced to the West, where Jaume (DARKNESS) Balaguerro first screened THE NAMELESS to an English speaking audience, where Nacho (AFTERMATH) Cerda attained worldwide fandom infamy and was the first festival in North America to show a film by Takashi (AUDITION, ICHI THE KILLER) Miike. Since its inception in 1996, Fantasia has been hugely supportive of short films, with their most recent installment showcasing over 100 selections.

Hand-picked by Fantasia’s Mitch Davis, SMALL GAUGE TRAUMA is an extraordinary collection of thirteen award-winning shorts from eight countries. It represents some of the strongest and most eccentric highlights from the festival’s trailblazing history with the form and is a veritable must-have for lovers of the unusual, aficionados of the fantastic and anyone with an interest in world cinema.
