Alamo Drafthouse’s Fantastic Fest has announced its final wave of programming, with Alexander Payne’s Downsizing scheduled as the closing night film.
The Austin-based festival will also feature Cory Finley’s Thoroughbred and Frank Grillo’s Wheelman among the line-up of 40 films. Projects include Bradford Baruh’s Applecart, Jon Schnitzer’s Haunters: The Art Of The Scare, and Giddens Ko’s Mon Mon Mon Monsters.
Angel Robinson’s Professor Marston & The Wonder Women, Lisa Bruhlmann’s Blue My Mind, and Coralie Fargeat’s Revenge are films from distinctive female voices that will receive their US premieres.
Don Herzfeldt’s World Of Tomorrow Episode 2: The Burden Of Other People’s Thoughts will get its world premiere, alongside the first X-rated parody, Bat Pussy.
“I’m incredibly proud of the vast array of filmmaking on display in this year’s programme,” Evrim Ersoy, Fantastic Fest’s creative director, said. “From the most highly acclaimed studio titles to the smallest independent debuts, it’s exhilarating to embrace unique creativity from the four corners of the world.”
In addition to the films, Fantastic Fest will also orchestrate a range of events, including the Puke and Explode spectacle, comedic performances, and the Fantastic Debates.
