Robin Aubert (“Les Affamés”) wins Fantasporto 2018 Fantasy competition and gets picked up by Netflix


The Canadian feature “Les Affamés” by Robin Aubert (Produced by Stéphanie Morissette – La maison de prod Canada 2017), just won the Best Film Award and Best Director award at the 38th edition of the Oporto International Film Festival, in the fantasy main official section. It is the second time that the director has won at the festival – he also won Best Director with his first feature “Saints Martyrs des Damnés” in 2006. 

“I am so excited that viewers around the world will get the chance to watch Les Affamés. I'm also proud for the Netflix audience to experience its thrills and chills in its original Québécois version, my mother tongue, which is so rich and colorful, full of history and mystery, something that fully characterizes my universe as a filmmaker,” said writer/director Robin Aubert. “Even if I truly believe in mankind, I’m terrified when rage and hate get the best of us. Les Affamés echoes the current state in western societies. Making a zombie movie was my own personal way of expressing both my fears and hopes about what's lying ahead of us.”



In a small, remote village in Upstate Quebec, things have changed. Locals are not the same anymore – their bodies are breaking down and they developed an outlandish attraction for flesh. Some call them the Ravenous. A handful of survivors go hiding into the woods, looking for others like them.

Two best buddies, Bonin and Vézina, try to laugh their way out of this nightmare, but a fatal encounter keeps them apart and on the run. Bonin takes under his wings Tania who has a dog’s bite mark on her hand… or is it?

Tough businesswoman Céline exults her guilt with raging machete virtuosity and never shies away from fighting back.

Old neighbors Pauline and Thérèse join forces to keep their land safe and to shelter other survivors.

And there’s the mysterious stock car racing pilot “No. 76”. He might have found a safe haven untouched by the Ravenous. If only the other survivors could find him first… But how long will they stay alive before the Ravenous make the boreal forest their new hunting ground?
