Chattanooga Film Festival Reveals First Details for 2024 Edition

Chattanooga Film Festival 2024

The Chattanooga Film Festival’s organizers have unveiled the first details of their upcoming 11th edition, which will take place from June 21-28, 2024.

As it did in its 10th edition, the festival will be presented in a hybrid format, with in-person and virtual programming available. Chattanooga’s historic haunted hotel, The Read House will house the festival on June 21-24 for its in-person screenings. 

Along with its dates, the Chattanooga Film Festival also teased a handful of films and special events 2024 attendees can look forward to. Highlighting the programming of the festival’s 11th edition is a salute to the influential anthology sci-fi/horror series The Twilight Zone and the fascinating life and career of its legendary creator Rod Serling. Presiding over this salute is Rod’s daughter, author Anne Serling, who’ll be attending.

Anne joins the Chattanooga Film Festival team, along with Twilight Zone historian/author Mark Dawidziak, for a screening of some classic episodes. They’ll also be part of a panel discussion on the Twilight Zone‘s legacy and lasting influence, and a special 100th birthday celebration for Rod Serling at the gorgeous Chattanooga Whiskey Event Hall.

“Serling and The Twilight Zone‘s influence will be felt in eerie ways throughout this year’s festival,” festival director Chris Dortch II said.

Other exciting 2024 offerings include a special 60th Anniversary Screening of Russ Meyer’s cult classic Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!

Also on hand is author/screenwriter Adam Cesare. He’ll be guest programming a secret screening and signing copies of his popular Clown In A Cornfield novels. 

These events, along with more than 30 other features and dozens of short films, live podcasts, and the fest’s now infamous nightly secret screening series, The Red Eye, are sure to please longtime fans and newcomers who can access the festival’s virtual offerings from anywhere in the U.S.
