Every badge is a guaranteed seat for each screening slot December 2-4, and start at just $45. For just $5 more, you can get priority access to the new Under Worlds Austin Horror Sidebar (open to all). There will be eleven screening slots, so that less than $5 per film plus the Pre-Apocalyptic Happy Hour and the Closing Night Party.
This year we’ve expanded the festival to a fourth day, adding a Gala First Night on December 1st. The Gala will include a kick-off pre-party, a First Night Screening, and an Opening Night Party. These badges start at $70 and include the popular 2016: A Brunch Odyssey party on the Saturday morning of the festival.
This year the entire festival will be at Flix Brewhouse, Flix is America’s Cinema Brewery® – the only first run movie theater in the world to incorporate a fully functioning microbrewery. By combining this great concept with Other Worlds Austin, we can deliver to each theater seat three of America’s great loves – craft beer, great food, and the best independent SciFi films! All of Flix’s stadium seating “dining rooms” are outfitted with the latest high-definition digital cinema projection and sound technologies, wall-to-wall curved screens, cushy high back chairs, and a revolutionary Easy Glider moveable table top. Flix brews nine of its own beers and offers 38 other draft beers for guests to enjoy.
If you’ve been to our Orbiter Year Round Screening Series you already know how fantastic Flix is, and visiting filmmakers have been universal in praising the sound and picture quality in the theaters.
Other Worlds Austin is one of the premier SciFi film festivals in the USA, was selected 'Best of Austin' by the Austin Chronicle, and labelled 'Best Visions of the Future.' With a team of programmers who love genre films, write genre films, or make genre films of their own, we are in this for one reason only, to put on a great festival. Here in the Geek Capital of the World, we are building a network of SciFi fans and filmmakers, leading a loyal community, and launching SciFi films into the wider world.
Last year’s festival included Mary Shelley Award Winner EMBERS, which went on to be the Closing Night Film at Slamdance, Toronto International FIlm Festival standout NO MEN BEYOND THIS POINT, the US Premiere of German thriller BOY 7, the US Premiere of French WWII-set time-travel head scratcher HOUSE OF TIME, a standing room only screening of Austin-based JACKRABBIT, the steampunk documentary VINTAGE TOMORROWS, and several others. The 2014 festival presented the World Premieres of APT 3D, THE SUN DEVIL AND THE PRINCESS, the US Premiere of Hungarian thriller AURA, Dutch drama CAPSULE, and the cloning closing night hit THE RECONSTRUCTION OF WILLIAM ZERO, as well as our Audience Award winner TIME LAPSE.
