Badges, Film Submissions, and 2018 Feedback
Hello Fantastic Festers!
As we roll on through the holiday season, we wanted to take a brief beat and touch base with some updates out of the 2018 fest and important info for 2019.
FANTASTIC FEST 2019:
Fantastic Fest 2019 will be held from September 19th - 26th, and in honor of our 15th year, we’ll be turning our lens to our neighbors to the south: Mexico! Yes, Fantastic Fest will be celebrating a country and culture so vividly rich in history, tradition, and art, and will be unleashing the deepest cuts of cinema we can find. From the wild world of Z-grade monsters to the hidden gems from the Golden Age, we’ll be traversing the length of Mexican cinema to bring to you the most eyeball-melting, brain-wrecking, expectation-shattering carnival of celluloid - Expect a joyful fiesta, luchadors, saints, a visit from the dead and *most certainly* our very own quinceañera! And as always - ¡SIN REGLAS!
Badges are on sale now! Visit the Fantastic Fest badges page to snag yours!
Film Submissions for FF2019 will be open in early January and you can view the submission guidelines and submit your film via FilmFreeway or Withoutabox by clicking HERE!
A huge THANK YOU to everyone for taking the time to send in their thoughts via the FF2018 feedback survey. We have reviewed all the feedback submitted and, while there were many positive and complimentary comments (thank you!), there were also areas brought to our attention that could use some work (also thank you!) and we’re already hard at it, mashing our brains together to make those improvements for FF2019!
FANTASTIC FEST PRESENTS:
Keep an eye out for more Fantastic Fest Presents screenings coming your way, like FF2018’s DIAL CODE SANTA CLAUS (aka DEADLY GAMES), which will *undoubtedly* become your new favorite Christmas flick. Check your local Alamo Drafthouse listings for showtimes!
