FANTASIA 2012—POSTER ART

For their 2012 poster commemorating their 16th edition, the Fantasia International Film Festival (Fantasia) once again enlisted the services of gifted Quebecois illustrator Donald Caron.

Creating the 2012 art, Caron has brought back the "Fantasia Cheval Noir" that he painted last year—also the likeness of Fantasia's highest jury award—brilliantly incorporating it into his own vision of that of the prophet Ezekiel's from 592 B.C. According to the bible, Ezekiel claimed to have seen a "vehicle" coming in from the sky, landing in the Cheber River in Chaldea (now Iraq). Some believe that this Vehicle was not of this earth and that this happening was, in fact, one of the earliest documented UFO sightings.
