CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – The Chattanooga Film Festival is releasing the first half of its lineup for June.
This year’s festival will once again be virtual.
It is scheduled for June 23-28.
This year’s films include two world premieres among a slate of documentaries, dramas and plenty of horror.
The Festival also has guests:
Filmmaker Graham Skipper will celebrate the world’s longest running film franchise and legendary icon, Godzilla. Storyteller and author Clay McCleod Chapman returns for another episode of the infamous Pumpkin Pie Show, and our wildly popular Script Pitch Contest with Rustic Films producer David Lawson Jr. is back.
“The world isn’t quite over yet, and with the summer heat about to sneak up on us, we wanted to bring another virtual edition of the world’s most magical cinema, carefully curated and assembled,” said the executive director. and lead programmer Chris Dortch II.
“We are incredibly proud of this year’s lineup and know genre film fans will love the world premiere films, bangers from the current festival circuit, a few things we bet we flew under their radar and some bonkers deep cuts. . .”
VIP badges are on sale now on chattfilmfest.org and give attendees access to all movies and events. Individual tickets for the films will be available closer to the festival.
