Greetings from the first full day of Fantastic Fest! The festival's now well and truly in swing, and seeing all of our family's beautiful faces in one place again has been a joy. 

A reminder! Every day we'll be posting Facebook Live videos of various Q&As and events. Tonight we'll have footage of the intros and Q&As for MAUS, ANNA AND THE APOCALYPSE, KING COHEN, WHEELMAN, THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER and video from the MONSTER SQUAD Monster Mega-Mash! So make sure you're following us on Facebook to stay caught up with all of that fun - and if you or your friends want to attend Fantastic Fest screenings without a badge, you can check this link every day to see what movies are available for non-badgeholders to purchase tickets!

The night before the festival, attendees enjoyed a long-standing tradition of a mixer at Peter Pan Putt-Putt. 

Day One dawned with a beautiful intro from festival director Kristen Bell, screenings of THOROUGHBREDS3FT. BALL & SOULS, RIFT and our shorts lineups SHORTS WITH LEGS and SHORT FUSE

And of course we had our annual opening night party. This year it was a pajama jam, with pillow fights, face-painting, board games, pizza, slumber party tunes DJed by Mo Shafeek and more!

Everyone have a great Day 2!
