The Festival is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a poster paying homage to its own history and the fantasy genre

XXVth Horror and Fantasy Film Festival

The artist behind the poster is none other than Jack Mircala (Madrid, 1968), an old friend of the Festival to which he is returning with a spectacular, densely-packed model used to pay a certain homage to both the fantasy genre and the festival. To bring these characters to life, the artist has used materials such as construction paper, scissors, glue and coloured pencils to make this tiny "theatre".

Mircala had previously participated in the festival with two exhibitions (Jack Mircala, 2001; Mansión Mircala, 2006), producing staging for the poster starring Alaska in 2005, publishing the children's book Verlian y el talismán extraviado in 2007 and giving an arts and crafts workshop in 2011.

The poster photography is by Asís G. Ayerbe and the final design by Ytantos. Pedro P. Jimenéz was responsible for the making of video.
