Fantastic Fest titles return to the Alamo!

November begins the flood of Fantastic Fest official selection titles to hit the Alamo Drafthouse screens. I'm a big fan of all four of these films, and honestly, let's face it, all four are going to need help to make it. Lately there has been a vast drop off in niche films even getting to market, let alone finding an audience.

If you enjoyed any of these films, please tell your friends and spread the word. Two of my favorite movie experiences of the year so far were spent with a vulnerable aging Belgian action star and a pair of odd Swedish children. If you live in Austin, of course, send your friends to the Alamo. If you live in other towns, check your local listings and support them where you can. These films should be opening in major markets across the country around the same time.

By the way, Todd Brown from Twitch and I head out tomorrow to the American Film Market for our first Fantastic Fest scouting mission. Our mission: bring back the goods for 2009.
