Amazing Fantasy Fest is the festival for creative, dangerous and edgy filmmaking in Western New York.  We're the outlaw festival in the 716 area code: the punk rockers and metalheads who don't pretend to be Sundance because we do our own thing . There's no such thing as a B-movie or guilty pleasure to us.

Our inaugural event runs seven days in 2024, from Friday the 13th of September – Thursday, Sept. 19th at the Dipson Amherst Theatre, 3500 Main Street in Buffalo. Programming will include new independent films, classic films, filmmaker Q&As… and one day of programming exclusively for our VIPs and Full Fantasy pass holders

Our full slate will be announced July 26th, and our full schedule will be available August 2nd, giving filmmakers six full weeks to prepare for The Most Amazing Show on Planet Earth!
