Fantastic Fest 2022 Film Lineup Revealed

Fantastic Fest is held at Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas.

Fantastic Fest is back for its seventeenth edition. It is the world-famous genre festival that movie-lovers flock to in Austin, Texas. This year features 21 World Premieres, 14 North American Premieres, and 21 U.S. Premieres. The festival happens at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar in Austin, TX, from September 22nd to the 29th. If you do not want to travel, you can partake in the virtual experience online from September 29th to October 4th via FF@Home.

“It’s been far too long since we’ve all been able to gather together and celebrate film the Fantastic Fest way. We’ve really put our all into crafting an extraordinary week, from the exceptional programming that spans exciting discoveries to highly-anticipated features to our signature events that will inject a much-needed dose of fun into 2022.”

Festival Director Lisa Dreyer.

Fantastic Fest will be the home to many film premieres.

This year’s opening night film for Fantastic Fest 2022 is the world premiere of Paramount Pictures’ SMILE. Fantastic Fest will also honor a legendary genre filmmaker Park Chan-wook. He is the South Korean director of OLDBOY, SNOWPIERCER, and THE HANDMAIDEN and has been defining (and defying) genre films for decades. Additionally, his latest work, MUBI’s DECISION TO LEAVE, will be showcased at the festival. The closing night film at Fantastic Fest 2022 will be director Ruben Östlund’s Palme d’Or-winning pitch black comedy from Neon, TRIANGLE OF SADNESS.

Other major studio films include the U.S. Premiere of THE MENU and THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN. Additionally, A24 brings us the North American premiere of MEDUSA DELUXE, a murder mystery set in the world of competitive hairdressing. MGM and Distributor United Artist will premiere BONES AND ALL, from director Luca Guadagnino. It stars Taylor Russell, Timothée Chalamet, Michael Stuhlbarg, André Holland, Chloë Sevigny, David Gordon-Green, Jessica Harper, Jake Horowitz, and Mark Rylance. Finally, the latest slasher from John Hyams is the U.S. premiere of Miramax’s SICK.
