The big winner in the features category was cause-and-effect crime thriller Time Lapse.

"I recently had the opportunity to interview Fonté over lunch at our neighborhood pub. We discussed how the late Housecore Horror Fest founder Corey Mitchell encouraged Fonté to start his own science-fiction festival, and offered him support and advice. Five percent of all proceeds from Other Worlds Austin ticket sales and merchandise will be given to the foundation that was started to fundraise for Mitchell's family."

Now ticket demand has been so big, he's decided to add another screen and four new feature titles."
