George Romero live in person for Fantastic Fest!

George Romero's Diary of the Dead
George Romero live in person!
Wanting to return to his DIY roots, George Romero has opted for a grass-roots approach for his new DIARY OF THE DEAD film: no big stars, a quick shooting schedule, digital technology and a small budget. With a story mixing elements of THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT and the long-running "DEAD" series, the film follows a group of college students shooting a horror movie in the woods who stumble upon a real zombie uprising. When the onslaught begins, they seize the moment as any good film students would, capturing the undead in a "cinema verite" style that causes more than the usual production headaches.

Fantastic Fest is proud to announce Diary of the Dead as the official opening night film of Fantastic Fest 2007. George Romero will be live in person in support of the film and will conduct a Q&A following the screening.
