Fantastic Fest 2016: All The Awards

Fantastic Fest is all wrapped up and the Shiner hangover is just now setting in. That hangover may be a few days later than normal due to the lack of the customary boozy awards show, but we can now share all the winners. And while not every film can win a prize (though it's certainly close), every film programmed at the Austin genre spectacular is a winner just based on inclusion. Here are the movies the esteemed jurors chose to single out:
