Monster Fest, Australia’s premier genre festival, is spreading its tentacles nationwide in 2019 thanks to an ongoing partnership with Event Cinemas.

The four-day annual event based in Melbourne will now run simultaneously in Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane, Canberra and Sydney, kicking off appropriately on Halloween, October 31 until Sunday, 3rd November 2019. The five new locations will include highlights from the Melbourne program as well as special events and screenings exclusive to each city.

“Whilst this festival will initially have a more refined program than their Melbourne counterpart, they are the first step in bringing the full Monster Fest experience to these cities in the near future and we are committed to making this festival the best experience possible for fans,” says Monster Fest director, Grant Hardie.

Look out for film announcements and ticketing info in June.
