Fantasia 2020: Talk with “Stranger Things” star Finn Wolfhard announced

British Columbian actor and musician Finn Wolfhard burst onto the world stage in the culture-shifting Netflix series STRANGER THINGS. With subsequent performances in the IT films, THE GOLDFINCH, THE TURNING, and THE ADDAMS FAMILY, among others, and forthcoming roles in Jason Reitman’s GHOSTBUSTERS: AFTERLIFE and Guillermo del Toro and Mark Gustafson’s recently announced PINOCCHIO, Wolfhard has solidified his standing as a major international talent.

Now, at the age of 17, he’s completed his debut as a writer/director, the clever character-driven comedy short NIGHT SHIFTS, premiering in the festival lineup this year.

To celebrate the launch of his move into storytelling, Fantasia will be presenting a live virtual artist talk with Finn Wolfhard, in conversation with none other than Jay Baruchel, on Saturday, August 29 at 2 PM EDT, free of charge and accessible worldwide. 

This event does not require registration and will be held exclusively on Fantasia’s YouTube channel at
