Fantastic Fest 2010 Preview

     September 23, 2010

Today marked the annual beginning of Fantastic Fest, a groovy little (yea, right) film festival that takes place around this same time every year in Austin, Texas. Fellow writer Germain Lussier and I will be sending in reports all week, and we are excited to bring you as much coverage as we dare muster with our two sets of fingers. We have a ton of interviews and screenings lined up and ready to go, so join me after the break to get a brief look at what you can look forward to for the entire week, and maybe beyond that (Hey, we have to sleep sometime).

First off, I just got done screening my second film as part of the Fantastic Fest programming, which happened to be Stone. Earlier today I had video interviews with Matt Reeves and Kodi Smit-McPhee and audio interviews with Elias Koteas and Dylan Minnette for a little film called Let Me In. Perhaps you have heard of it? Anyways, they went great and I look forward to getting those up as quickly as I can. Meanwhile, tonight I have a brief red carpet interview with Rebecca De Mornay for Mother’s Day and Germain will be screening the film tonight and doing interviews with the cast and crew tomorrow.

What else is on the horizon? We have Buried, Stake Land, 30 Days of Night: Dark Days, Fire of Conscience, Agnosia, True Legend, IP Man 2, and some chats with Bill Pullman and Greg Nicotero planned. Also, don’t forget about reports from the various secret screenings as well. Oh, and don’t worry, if we missed something, let us know in the comments as we will be adding even more to our to-do list. As always, keep checking back right here for more from Fantastic Fest and our continuous coverage of all things film.
