Fantastic Fest to have virtual celebration in September

Fantastic Fest is going virtual.

Fantastic Fest officially announced in July that this year’s event would not be taking place. It was certainly disappointing to hear, but with the news came a glimmer of hope. Organizers also announced that plans were being made to take some of the fun online.

Today, a Celebration of Fantastic Fest was announced. Taking place from September 24 – October 1 the online event will be going to the Alamo on Demand platform. Fan favorites like Fantastic Feuds and 100 best kills will be available. Even better, these events will be free to everyone.

“Despite the many hardships 2020 has thrown our way, the Fantastic Fest team knew we needed to stick to our mission of celebrating and championing genre films from bold, diverse voices – new filmmakers and treasured alumni alike.” says Fantastic Fest programmer Logan Taylor. “While we have a much smaller selection than in previous years, we’re delighted to showcase 15 films that express our brand loudly and proudly.”

While this year’s slate may be more modest in scope, every film captures the spirit of Fantastic Fest in its own unique way. Featuring 5 world premieres (with an additional 2 world premiere restorations) and 4 shorts blocks featuring 36 short films, the lineup amplifies talented female, queer, and racially diverse creatives from all over the globe. We might all be stuck on the couch, but we are still excited to bring a sampling of world-class films you’ve come to expect from Fantastic Fest directly to your home.
