QT-FESTby NLHC | created - 03 Mar 2011 | updated - 21 Jul 2014 | Public
The Quentin Tarantino Film Festival, or QT-Fest, is a semi-annual film and multimedia event held by the Austin Film Society in Austin, Texas and attended by film director Quentin Tarantino.
Most recently, the Alamo Drafthouse theater in downtown Austin, Texas has been the selected venue.
The event usually takes place for a few days, and Tarantino screens a selection of his favorite films using prints he owns.
Usually he programs films to a theme such as 80's horror night or Italian crime films of the 70's. All films come from his private collection of prints and generally have played a part in the creation of his own films. He uses the film fest not only as a platform to show off his impressive collection of rare film reels but also to point out forgotten genres, directors, actors or studios.
So far there have been 6 festivals, a “best of” featuring films shown in previous festivals, and a Grindhouse only week in Los Angeles. A very important aspect of the Quentin Tarantino Film Festivals in general is, that Tarantino introduces all the films himself, shows trailers for all kinds of films and takes the time to discuss the films with the fans lucky enough to gain badges for the nights. His policy is that he doesn't talk about himself or his movies during the festival, which makes it hard for journalists or fans to gain information about projects he is currently working on. But as in the case of QT 5, he uses the festival to set the mood for coming projects or showcasing some of the influences on his work.
