The new festival was called “Fantastica” until 1996, when it took the name of “Fantastic’Arts”, a sign of its opening up to other forms of artistic expression as well as cinema, including the plastic arts. In 2009 the Festival changed its name to “Festival International du Film Fantastique de Gérardmer”.
