The festival looks to bring attention to films that specialize in horror, sci-fi, action, and fantasy.  Fantastic Fest is inclusive and brings in films from all over the world that push boundaries and collaborates with other festivals to shed light on lesser known artists. In the past, Fantastic Fest has premiered films like John Wick, There Will Be Blood, and The Night Comes for Us.
