Ben Umstead, East Coast Editor

We're just a mere two days away from Fantastic Fest starting in the fair city of Austin, TX, and  Tim League and his Alamo Drafthosue army are still announcing titles for the fest. And boy, are they a fine looking bunch. Ti West's The Sacrament, Michel Gondry's Mood Indigo and Matsumoto Hitoshi's R100 are having their US premieres at a fest that is already chock full of coolness. Read on for the full scoop and, if need be, get yourself familiar with the rest of FF's schedule, because as the week amps up so will our coverage of the fest.

Austin, TX - Tuesday, September 17 - Fantastic Fest is pleased to announce three additional films to its exciting lineup for 2013, which includes films from celebrated directors Michel Gondry, Hitoshi Matsumoto and Ti West.

 

**For press attendees, we've also compiled a list of filmmaker and cast guests in attendance. The list is below the festival lineup additions and is broken out by film. Please note, the previously announced guest and Badass Hall of Fame inductee, director Errol Morris, is no longer able to attend Fantastic Fest. Unfortunately, Mr. Morris had to cancel his trip due to a family matter. He is disappointed to miss the Festival as he was very much looking forward to attend.**
