Hey there! We're coming off one of the greatest Fantastic Fests in festival history, and that's thanks to YOU. We are blessed with the greatest film-lovers and festival-goers in the entire world, and we can't thank you all enough for your enthusiasm, warmth and uncommon spirit. Now that we're all rested and hydrated, it's time to start eagerly anticipating Fantastic Fest 2013!
Here's the scoop on the badges:
Mark your calendars: the dates for next year's Fantastic Fest will be September 19th-26th, 2013. (Is it crazy to say I can't wait?)
2013 Fan/Regular badges will go on sale Monday, October 8th at 4:00pm CST here.
We will have a lottery for prospective VIP badgeholders to get a jump start on purchasing VIP badges, and we'll post the 50 lottery winners' names on the Fantastic Fest blog on Friday, October 5th by 12:00pm (noon) CST. Lottery winners will be sent a private purchase link for 2013 badges on Friday October 5th by 5:00pm and will have until Sunday October 7th at 5:00pm CST to purchase their 2013 VIP badges. Lottery badges are NON-TRANSFERABLE and ONLY one per person. Anyone that uses the link to purchase more than one VIP badge will NOT be refunded for that second badge.
The remaining VIP badges will go on sale Monday, October 8th at 3:00pm CST.
