Get Ready for the Fantastic

Get Ready for the Fantastic

News is slowly leaking out – in proper fanboy fashion – of a new Austin event called Fantastic Fest. Founded by Tim McCanlies and Paul Alvarado-Dykstra, the festival strives to be an American counterpart to Sitges in Spain or Fantasia in Montreal. The festival will focus on science fiction, horror, and fantasy films.

The dates for the first annual Fantastic Fest are October 6-9, 2005 and it will be held at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar. Submissions are welcome, with a deadline of August 12, 2005.

You can get more information on the festival’s official Web site.
