“(…) I loved the experience in Oporto two years ago, when Fantasporto had a retrospective of my work. The festival and the hospitality touched me (…) I felt Fantasporto should be one of the first places to show the film.” Milcho Manchevski-  realizador BIKINI MOON (EUA)
 “(Fantasporto) is considered one of the more important film festivals in its genre. And is going to be an honor to my  A Comedy Divine to have its European premiere there. (…) It is a known film festival in Brazil and seen as an important entrance door to the European market.“ Toni Venturi- A COMÉDIA DIVINA (Brasil)
“For me Fantasporto is a one of the most important Festivals in the Horror, Thriller or Fantasy genre! This is my second invitation to this Festival and I feel very proud to present my new film "Involution" to Fantasporto, where big names as Guillermo del Toro and other legends won already some awards.” Pavel Khvaleev- realizador  INVOLUTION (Russia)
“Four years ago, I was searching for festivals in Portugal and I came across Fantasporto, described by Variety as one of the Top 25 Film Festivals in the world. (…) I was not quite familiar with Oporto when I first submitted to the festival.  But I was aware of its beauty and kindness of the people when I came here the first time.”  Ferdinand Lapuz, produtor e distribuidor (Filipinas)
“I was told about the festival by other filmmakers.  I did some research and it was known as one of the top genre film festivals in the world. (…)I have known about the festival for years. (…) I believe I was at the Cannes film festival at the time when I first hear about Fantasporto. “  Jeremy Lutter, realizador  THE HOLLOW CHILD (Canada)
“I'd always heard of Fantasporto and understood it to be a well-established film festival with a roster of early films from the likes of Cronenberg, Fincher and Guillermo del Toro. A very impressive lineage. (…) Fantasporto, … is always in the back of the mind of filmmakers - there are so many festivals now … The aim for a filmmaker is to get accepted into a well-established film festival with a pedigree where the official entry status actually means something and adds value to your film. Fantasporto is one of these film festivals. “ - Suzie Halewood , realizadora DIVISON 19, Prémio da Crítica 2017 (UK)
“I've chosen Fantasporto because of its international reputation and credibility among film festival's community. (…) I first heard about Fantasporto when I started making movies, 15 years ago. It was already one of the biggest fantastic film festivals in the world, in which I´ve always wanted to screen my films (…)” - Santiago Dellape, realizador MEIO EXPEDIENTE (Brasil)
“It is a prestigious world renown genre festival. An opportunity to screen at Fantasporto is a true honor. After completing our first feature film, other film producers suggest we screen at Fantasporto. The festival comes highly recommended.”- Jason Bognacki, realizador IN THE DARK DARK WOODS (USA)
“I’ve been lucky enough to attend a number of festivals with my films all over the world, I can easily say that Fantasporto is the best. I had a great time with my film ‘Caught’ last year and wanted to return with my new film Fractured.(…) I’d known about the festival for a few years, last year was my first time attending though. I’m hoping to bring all my films to Oporto.” Jamie Patterson, realizador FRACTURED (UK)
 “Fantasporto is an amazing film festival to screen my film as it allows fantasy/sci-fi/horror films to have a place to be seen and heard. (…) I heard about the fest this year when I was researching film festivals and found out how amazing this one was and I wanted to be a part of it.” – Brian Metcalf, realizador LIVING AMONG US (USA)
Fantasporto is one of the world’s top 3 Fantastic Film Festival and also we were hoping the audiences in Europe to know and enjoy the film we produced.” - Hideaki Asayama, produtor “DC HEROES VS EAGLE TALON” (JAPAN)
