Fantastic Fest is one of the best geek festivals in the United States, and honestly it might rank above even Comic Con for a must-see event because of its smaller, more personal feel. The Fantastic Fest 2013 award winners were just announced as it comes to a close this week, and we have the list for you here at Renegade Cinema.

Also, make sure to keep an eye out for our reviews from Fantastic Fest 2013 as Lux is there for the second leg of the event. For all his Fantastic Fest reviews, check out our festival coverage page.
