Fantastic Fest 2020 cancelled due to coronavirus

Another film fest cancellation.

For the second time this year, a large Austin film festival has been cancelled because of the coronavirus. Fantastic Fest, largest genre festival in the United States, was scheduled to have its sixteenth event. The fest was going to be held from September 24-October 1st. That being said, their will be online event during the time event was scheduled to take place.

In a statement on their website, organizers stated the following:

“We’re currently in the lab working on a program of fun online gatherings and events for that celebration. Our goal will be to have a virtual event every night from September 24th through October 1st – shorts programs, 100 Best Kills, secret screenings, an online Fantastic Feud, other fun surprises, and a look back at some amazing films from Fantastic Fest history – for us all to interact and reunite. We aren’t ready to announce all the details, but we’ll be in touch in the weeks ahead.”

Fantastic Fest considered going online as other film fests have but decided a virtual experience would not be able to capture the spirit of the event.
