New to this year’s festival are Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson, who will share their wildly imaginative world of stop motion animation in “Anomalisa,” as well as a 35 mm screening of the Cannes Grand Prix winner “Son of Saul.”

“I love the diversity and breadth of programming that
the team delivered this year,” said Tim League, Fantastic Fest and Alamo
Drafthouse Founder. “In particular I’d like to highlight ‘Anomalisa,’ ‘Tikkun’ and ‘Son of Saul.’  These utterly-unique, auteur-driven, genre-defying
masterpieces are exactly the type of groundbreaking cinema I want to share with
the discerning Fantastic Fest audience.”

Fantastic Fest 2015 runs from September 15 to October 1.
