MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The Fargo Fantastic Film Festival exists to showcase the ambitious and creative independent filmmaker. To make a good “genre” film takes real creativity, craftsmanship and – yes, artistic merit. We show professional and amateur productions as both can learn from the other.

MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The Fargo Fantastic Film Festival exists to showcase the ambitious and creative independent filmmaker. To make a good ?genre? film takes real creativity, craftsmanship and ? yes, artistic merit. We show professional and amateur productions as both can learn from the other.

The FFFF offers exposure to genre films which are often overlooked by the traditional festival circuit. Like a few other fests, we strive to offer acquisition and media and exhibition opportunities for undistributed films as well as spotlight upcoming genre theatrical releases and genre classics.
