Reading Time: 2 minutes

Austin-based cinema-eatery Alamo Drafthouse is giving genre films their due via a new programming series designed to bring the best in genre to cinephile audiences nationwide. Spawning directly out of Fantastic Fest, the largest genre film festival in the United States, Fantastic Fest Presents delivers the fest’s favorite films to Alamo Drafthouse audiences around the country with Fantastic Fest extras such as bonus content, talent in attendance, Livestream Q&As, afterparties, and more.

“Our reason for existence and this is true for both the Alamo and Fantastic Fest, is to support emerging filmmakers and the incredible films they create,” says Alamo Drafthouse founder and CEO Tim League. “We see so many wonderful films debut at the festival each year; it is immensely rewarding to continue that relationship all the way through their commercial launch.”

The first selection is Come To Daddy, the directorial debut from acclaimed genre producer and Fantastic Fest alum Ant Timpson (Turbokid, Deathgasm, ABCs Of Death). A darkly comedic thriller starring Elijah Wood (Lord of the Rings), Come To Daddy had jaws dropping at Fantastic Fest 2019 with its shocking twists and turns. Ahead of its February 7 theatrical release, Come To Daddy will have “Fantastic Fest Presents” screenings at 16 Alamo Drafthouse locations on Monday, February 3 with director Ant Timpson and star Elijah Wood in person in LA for a post-screening Q&A that will be live-streamed to audiences around the country.

“It’s exciting working with the Alamo Drafthouse team again,” says Come To Daddy director Ant Timpson. “I’ve worked with Tim League on multiple projects for decades now and had numerous films play at Fantastic Fest. Their dedication and creativity are always impressive, and a reminder of the glory days of cinema exhibition.”
