The Conferences

The IAFA sponsors two conferences. 


The International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts (ICFA)


The ICFA takes place annually in March. The ICFA is a "face-to-face" scholarly conference devoted to all aspects of the fantastic (broadly defined) as it appears in literature, film, and the other arts. For many years, this conference has been held in Orlando, Florida, USA. IAFA membership is required to present at the ICFA. 


The IAFA October Conference


In October 2021, a symposium will be held in Orlando, Florida, USA. Beginning in 2022, this conference will be held virtually each year in October. The policies and procedures for this conference are still being created by the board and interested members.
