Get Hyped, the online version of the Chattanooga Film Festival is Jam-Packed with awesome movies and events.

Bloody Disgusting is happy to be the media partner of the Chattanooga Film Festival (CFF) this year, bringing the event online for the first time. This means you can all participate in the comfort of your own home in the United States (full access badges cost only $30).

Chattanooga today announced its busy schedule and live events for the 22nd annual meeting of the Chattanooga Club. From May to the 25th of May. May announced.

Extract from the press release:

The 2020 festival is a mix of emblematic guests, including Law & Order : USV star, hip-hop visionary and front man of the heavy metal band Body Count – Ice-T, who meets the acclaimed filmmaker and filmmaker Ernest Dickerson (Do the Right Thing, Juice, Demon Knight, The Walking Dead) for a rare interview about their cult classic Surviving the Game.

The SBB is also proud to welcome back its patron Joe Bob Briggs for a timely discussion with filmmaker/producer Mick Garris about the filming of the Stephen King classic on pandemics: Position. In all genres, the SBB will also have an excellent discussion about the renowned filmmaker Alex Winter (The Lost Boys, Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, Freaked), who gives an insight into the production years of his new documentary film Zappa. Also on the program is a unique performance by GWAR, that will answer live questions from fans as we celebrate the 30th anniversary of GWAR. We want to honour the 50th anniversary of their legendary metal plate Scumdogs of the Universe!

One of the highlights of this year’s festival is filmmaker Joe Dante, who will receive the SBB Lifetime Achievement Award. With an iconic and popular filmography featuring classics such as Howl, Piranha, Gremlins, Innerspace, Explorers and The Suburbs, he doesn’t want to miss the in-depth discussion about his legendary career.

As far as feature films are concerned, the SBB is pleased to present the world premiere of The Wanting Mareby Nicholas Ashe Bateman. This hauntingly beautiful film revolves around an imaginary world and a series of women who pass on a recurring dream over several generations. Bateman will also present World-Building in Independent Film: he will show visual effects tools for low-budgetfilmmakers tracing the production process and the digital journey to bring The Wanting Mare to life.

For the bloodthirsty public, SBB will unleash the world premiere of Skull. This mystical Brazilian massacre, born of the Fantaspoa festival and the very first market, sprinkles the streets of Sao Paulo. Filmmaker Kapel Furman channels his inner Jason Voorhees with the story of an old mask that takes on a human form in order to take a visceral revenge for the incarnation of his god.

The festival will be one of its favorite emerging distributors, Dark Star Pictures, with a selection of acclaimed films that are among the best and most unique works of 2020. The first is Jumbo. With Noémie Merlant, a film that made its debut at Sundance and received rave reviews. The Fantastic Fest team, one of the world’s best genre festivals that has been like a family to the SBB, is on board to present a favourite of the 2019 festival audience: Film by director Mickey Reece The Hunter’s Climate.

Shudder, an old employee of the SBB, offers a special commentary of FX legend Greg Nicotero on his Creepshow episode Gray Matterand comes into action with a handful of scary movies, including The Beach House. Jeffrey A. Brown’s film is the kind of intelligent science fiction horror that will take advantage of Richard Stanley’s latest Color Out of Space and Stephen King’s The Mist.

And here’s something incredibly cool, because this event will have a horrible visual component created by the ghost behind Mandy’s cheddar goblin:

Tim Reis, Paul Katzman, Mike Bremen, John Manfredi and Mike Morgan of the media team together with Shane Morton of Silver Scream (the creator of Mandy’s Cheddar Goblin) will design and build an unforgettable set for the live studio and the official headquarters of the virtual SBB.

Behind the scenes, the SBB has also hired Josh Goldbloom, the founder of Cinepocaylpse, as artistic director, whose passion for genre film is perhaps only overshadowed by his sense of anarchy.

Below you will find the list of the films that will be broadcasted, with details about the packages and the streaming partners.

UNITED STATES, 2019

We’ve all seen horror anthology films, but there’s nothing like SCARE PACKAGE, which adds a good dose of comedy to the mix. Each director worked with a different subgenre of horror, focused on the tropics and clichés that populate the genre. The result, according to the horror site BloodyDisgusting, is a charming film that becomes aware of the tropics that make up the genre he loves and immerses himself in it with heart, blood, guts and laughter.

SEASON 2 COWBOY | Jeff Green

In 1990, children’s theatre actors Robert Eastland and Mike Cormier worked with radio producer Jeff Green on a crazy television pitch for a Canadian station that tried to produce its educational program. Against all odds, the green light was given for their pilot film and the three started producing one of the most bizarre but innovative children’s programmes ever made. Their first season started as a riff in THE HOWDY-DOODY SHOW, but mutated into a series of surrealistic comic sketches, experimental video art and caustic satire. As if Douglas Adams, Mark Frost and The Kids in the Hall WONDER SHOWZEN with the ingenuity of MST3K’s KMTA year, the second season catapults his hosts into space and confronts them with an evil realm of interstellar spread. This remix preserves the finals of season 1 and the first 12 episodes of season 2, which have been compressed by the Laser Blast Film Society into a complete runtime for a sparse but maximum fusion of ideas.

LIVE EVENTS, WORKSHOPS + PODCASTS

2020 VIRTUAL PITCH SESSION| David Lawson
