This is our favorite time of the year. It's Fantastic Fest time when our enormous group of ScreenAnarchy writers descends on the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar to watch a ton of great movies and eat and drink way too much. But movies, oh so many good movies. By their very inclusion (and based on the fact that many of our writers also program for the fest), everything playing at Fantastic Fest is worth seeing. So we're going to do things a bit differently this year and ask each of our 10 attending (!) writers to pick just one film that they're most looking forward to seeing.

Many of the films have already been reviewed here on the site. How many? Well check out this list of all the films playing at Fantastic Fest with links to their reviews.

Will you be in Austin? Say hello, and feel free to write something up in our contributor system to join in the fun.

Down Under

I'm totally cheating in that as a programmer I've already seen pretty much everything in the fest, so I'm not really anticipating anything for myself. But for the audience? I can't wait for people to experience Down Under, an utterly fearless and blazingly smart comedy set against the backdrop of the Cronulla race riots in Australia. Because, you know, when people act like raging assholes the best thing to do is make fun of them. - Todd Brown
