Celebration of Fantastic Fest
Fantastic Fest has gone virtual for a celebration of everything they love about the annual event: live online versions of classics like Fantastic Feud and 100 Best Kills, repertory rediscoveries, and world premieres of the finest genre cinema 2020 has to offer. To make the event accessible to loyal fans and newbies alike, all new features and live events will be available free to view on the Alamo On Demand platform for anyone in the United States.
The festival will be bookended by unique spins on the werewolf film: opening with the charming and irreverent Teddy by France’s Boukherma brothers, and closing with Amelia Moses’s haunting thriller Bloodthirsty. Featuring five world premieres (with an additional two world premiere restorations) and four shorts blocks featuring 36 short films, the lineup amplifies talented female, queer, and racially diverse creatives from all over the globe.
Repertory titles will be available at special rates throughout the week-long celebration. They will also be presenting two exclusive in-theater-only screenings, Brandon Cronenberg’s highly anticipated Possessor on September 23 and Jim Cummings’ The Wolf of Snow Hollow on October 8 at Alamo Drafthouse Slaughter Lane
The Celebration of Fantastic Fest will also offer a number of interactive virtual film screenings with Scener, a watch party platform that enables millions of participants to simultaneously enjoy films together over immersive live video chat. This integration is built into the Alamo On Demand platform that will go live at Fantastic Fest, providing public or private co-watching parties that are synchronized in real-time and paired with video, audio, and text chat.
