Founded in 2005, Fantastic Fest is the largest genre film festival in the U.S., specializing in horror, fantasy, sci-fi, action and just plain fantastic movies from all around the world. In 2017, Fantastic Fest expanded the festival to include screenings at flagship Alamo theaters in San Francisco, New York and Denver.
Continuing to build on the success of the launch, these satellite markets will again be showcasing a highly curated selection of titles from this year’s lineup as well as guests and a number of events that share the DNA and lineage of the festival.
Spanning from the 27th to the 30th September, this year’s satellite markets promise to bring the excitement and the action of Fantastic Fest closer to home for those unable to attend the Austin event, as well as allowing people to experience the best in adventurous and exciting genre cinema from across the world.
