The ‘Fest and the Furious

It takes most of a year and a fearless crew to produce a WonderFest Weekend.

There is a core group that works throughout the year, and then there are staff and volunteers who work like mad for the intense period leading up to–and after–the show.

Each of our staff has fond childhood memories of reading Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine, building Aurora model kits and seeing great movies full of wonder and imagination.  We’re thrilled to share that happy experience with new generations…and older ones, too.
