Fantastic Fest 2013 (Sept 19th - 26th) today announced it's final wave of festival programming. The total slate for this year is shaping up to be one of the festivals best. I'm most excited that they also announced that the closing film will Terry Gilliam's new film The Zero Theorem. I caught the first ten minutes of Theorem at Comiccon and it looks intriguing. I can't wait to see the rest of it.
