Horror comedy American Burger takes part in 2015 Grossmann Fantastic Film and Wine Festival in Ljutomer, Slovenia 14th-18th July.
The Grossmann festival is dedicated to the more dangerous and funny side of cinema, that pulls no punches, wallows in excess, political incorrectness and goes all the way and beyond. But, in order to fully understand it, one must take time, enjoy the adrenalin-ridden ride and equip their most extreme sense of humour. And this is much easier with a glass of good wine…
American Burger travels wide and far. The campy horror comedy has been chosen for screenings in the World Fantastic Cinema category at the prestigeous 19th Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival July 16th – 26th, in South Korea. We are very much looking forward to meet our Korean friends.
