What with all the panels and screenings and more that take place during the San Diego Comic-Con, one of the best kept secrets about the show is its International Independent Film Festival (CCI-IFF). The lineup for this year’s event is now available, and we have for you both the horror/suspense and science fiction/fantasy schedules.
All screenings and panels for the CCI-IFF will be held in the Marriott Marquis and Marina, right next door to the Convention Center (next to the Hall A end). Included in this year’s schedule is the return of the popular “Comic-Con Film School” panels on all four days, along with an assortment of other film-oriented panel discussions on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. A special opening night event, the “CCI-IFF Meet and Greet” party, will be held on Thursday, July 21, in the foyer outside the Festival room at the Marriott. This event is open to the filmmakers, attendees, and interested fans from 8:00 to 9:00 PM.
The CCI-IFF celebrates independent film, with the accent on genre-related entries, including action/adventure, animation, comics-oriented, documentary (related to pop culture topics), horror/suspense, humor, and science fiction/fantasy. The Festival includes a special awards program on Sunday in Marriott Hall 1 & 2, beginning at 11:00 AM. Sunday afternoon features rescreenings of the award-winning films. This year’s incredible schedule has a decidedly international flavor, with submissions from Canada, China, Italy, Pakistan, Poland, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom, in addition to the United States.
