[HAPPENING THIS WEEK!] CHATTANOOGA FILM FESTIVAL 2016

 

 

The Chattanooga Film Festival will be held this week, March 31st – April 3rd, and features several impressive films and guests. For those who cannot spend a full week or longer at Fantastic Fest, Sundance, TIFF, or any of the other major festivals that pop up all over the United States, Europe, and Asia, the Chattanooga Film Festival looks to be offering a lot of bang for the buck and its short duration.

Notable films that will be playing the festival that we have covered here at Daily Grindhouse include: TOO LATE, THE MIND’S EYE, BASKIN, BELLADONNA OF SADNESS, THE BLACKCOAT’S DAUGHTER (originally titled FEBRUARY), MEN & CHICKEN, DEMON, CAMINO, THE INVITATION, THE FORBIDDEN ROOM, and SOUTHBOUND.

 

Highly anticipated films like THE GREASY STRANGLER, BAD BLOOD, I SAW THE LIGHT, DIRECTOR’S CUT, THE ALCHEMIST COOKBOOK, JACO, and JAFAR PANAHI’S TAXI will be presented alongside rarely screened repertory showings of EDDIE PRESLEY, THE COMEDY OF TERRORS, THE WRAITH, and WHISKEY MOUNTAIN.

 

Special guests scheduled to be on hand include Joe Bob Briggs, Clint Howard, Jeremy Gardner, Christian Stella, Zoe Bell, and Robert Trujillo.

 

I can personally vouch for TOO LATE, THE MIND’S EYE, and MEN & CHICKEN. I saw all three films at Fantastic Fest and enjoyed them immensely. Unfortunately, it does not look like any of these films will be gaining a very wide release this year. And in the case of TOO LATE, it is a treat to see a movie that is so lovingly shot and presented in 35mm, so you should take advantage of that opportunity while it is available.
