Keep Your Eyes on the Fantastic Market Prizes

Representatives from 16 films in various stages of development will pitch their projects at Fantastic Market | Mercado Fantastico on Saturday, September 21st. Our team of judges, which includes Tim League, Robert Rodriguez, Harry Knowles, and Elijah Wood, will honor the top three market projects. 

Through the generous support of market sponsors, the first place project will receive an exciting production support package. This prize package is as follows:

  • Chemistry will donate post-production services; 
  • Panavision Dallas will donate a Texas camera rental package to a production that shoots within the state and meets standard camera rental requirements; and 
  • Sofia Films and ASSIMILATE will donate a one-year license for post-production and the SCRATCH Color Correction program, accompanied by the advice of a visual effects SCRATCH certified supervisor.

The winners will be announced at the Fantastic Fest Awards Ceremony on Monday, September 23.
