About Cabane à Sang

Cabane à Sang (CàS) is a genre film festival with a grindhouse aesthetic created in 2017 by filmmaker Frank Appache. Born out of the need to highlight the exceptional talent of the filmmakers of this style of cinema in Quebec. The festival begins as a road cinema, traveling city to city like a touring band, eventually stopping for good, in Hochelaga (Montreal). It covers horror and trashy comedies as well as science fiction. Following the growing success of the festival, Cabane à Sang presents a 12-episode television series on Frissons TV in the fall of 2020. The show is then noticed by mainstream media, intrigued by this iconoclastic vision of TV and cinema.
