Germany's FantasyFilmFest started out 20 years ago as a one-off presentation of science fiction and horror films in Hamburg. This year, the FFF toured seven German cities, spending a week in each location, and has become a veritable powerhouse for the release of genre and crossover films. For the first time this year, the event handed out the First Blood award, for first or second-time directors. In the end it was a U.S. film that garnered the prize: Rian Johnson's film noir murder mystery "Brick," a high school mystery starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Bonnie J. Gordon reports.
