The 2020 Frightening Ass Film Festival is Coming!

This year marks the 10th edition of the Frightening Ass Film Fest (FAFF); the Chattanooga Film Festival’s seasonal festival held in and around Halloween. Slated for October 30 and October 31, FAFF will be an exciting mix of short films, new indie features, and carefully curated cult classics. Organizers are also putting together a series of live events, similar to the events that made CFF’s virtual edition in May an interactive fan-friendly experience.

Frightening Ass Film Fest (FAFF) All Access Badges are available now for the price of $25 with individual tickets for certain films being made available closer to the event. Attendees will be able to access all films beginning 12:00 am EST October 30, and access ends 6:00 am EST the morning of November 1st. This yearly event functions as a fundraiser for the Chattanooga Film Festival, a 501c(3), with all proceeds benefiting the staging of the 2021 edition of the fest.

Frightening Ass Film Fest (FAFF) also marks the return of Chattanooga Film Festival collaborators Media Team and Silver Scream FX Lab along with the much-anticipated return of fan-favorite characters Bubz, Professor Morte, and Guna, who will be on hand to host the weekend’s live offerings.

Our good friends at the Chattanooga Film Festival have announced the return of their annual Halloween Horror Fest – the Frightening Ass Film Fest. FAFF 8 arrives in an expanded, 2-day format scheduled for Saturday, October 27 and Sunday, October 28 and boasts seven features (plus a secret screening), two episodes of the latest Channel Zero installment, nine short films, an “Eyeslicer Halloween Special,” a “Frightening Ass Costume Contest,” a “Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board Contest” (with live séance), a “HORROR SHOW” art exhibition, and a FAFFter Party featuring the indie-pop-psych-rock sounds of Psychic Dungeon.

Sadly, MMC! will not be attending and I’m kicking myself (which is hard to do and a good way to hurt yourself). For those looking to attend these “Bloodbaths and Beyond,” check out FAFF 8’s schedule!

Here is FAFF 8’s sweet looking line-up:
