Slackerwood: Bears Fonte Inaugurates Other Worlds Austin Festival

"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."

Austin Cronicle: Other Worlds Austin Gets Bigger, Stranger

"When Bears Fonté announced that he would be holding the first Other Worlds Austin festival this Dec. 4-6, it was going to be a small affair, with one screen at the Galaxy Highland showing nothing but sci-fi films for three days. Now ticket demand has been so big, he's decided to add another screen and four new feature titles."
