Fantastic Fest 2017
Announcing Our Shorts Lineup, Fantastic Fest Satellite Festivals And More
First and foremost: we at Fantastic Fest send our hearts and best wishes out to those affected by Hurricane Harvey. We’re all family here in Texas and our family is hurting. You can read about the Alamo Drafthouse’s Harvey relief efforts HERE, and please consider donating to the GoFundMe campaign of one of our longest-tenured volunteers, Terry Flemings, who lives in the recently devastated town of Port Arthur. This campaign goes toward restocking emergency shelters in Port Arthur that badly need it.

Shorts Lineup!

We announced our 2017 short film program, and it’s a killer. And this year, to celebrate the festival’s Arabic theme, veteran festival programmer Peter Kuplowsky and Fantastic Fest creative director Evrim Ersoy have added a unique sidebar to the festival’s regular short-subject programming. Read the lineup HERE!

Fantastic Fest Satellites!

For the first year ever, we’re so excited to announce three satellite festivals hitting New York, Denver and San Francisco in the days following Fantastic Fest. Live in or near one of those cities? Enjoy a highly-curated selection of Fantastic Fest 2017 titles from the comfort of your own town! Read more and find out where to get your tickets HERE.

Fantastic Fest 2017 Art

We’re in love with our new poster for this year’s Arabic-themed festival, designed by Alamo Drafthouse art director Chris Bilheimer! Aren’t you?
That’s it for this week, but keep your eyes peeled because we have a TON of big news coming your way soon. It’s September! And that means it’s officially Fantastic Fest time.
