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 around the world. The festival has launched and propelled the buzz for international genre hits like The Human Centipede, Monsters, Timecrimes, and Trollhunter. Fantastic Fest is held each year at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema on South Lamar.
The festival, founded in 2005 as a weekend showcase by friends Tim League of Alamo Drafthouse, Harry Knowles of Ain’t Cool News, Paul Alvarado-Dykstra, and Tim McCanlies, writer of The Iron Giant and Secondhand Lions, has turned into an icon in the festival circuit amongst fans and filmmakers.
