Grimmfest 2020 will offer a roster of feature film premieres and shorts programmes across a new online platform.
This year has seen every film festival struggling to find ways to present new films to their audience safely, without risk of infection, in the midst of a global pandemic. Therefore Grimmfest will be doing things a bit differently this year. They are postponing our ‘live’ festival until 2021 but in the meantime will run a virtual Festival in early October.
Grimmfest’s 2020 online edition will run from 7 – 11 October 2020 and will feature an exciting array of feature film premieres, shorts programmes, Q&As, talks and much more.
Films will run from the advertised times but will be available for a longer window (48 – 96 Hours depending on the title) so you have time to watch them at your leisure. Please note that online Q&As will run at advertised times throughout the festival and will also give viewers the opportunity to ask questions. They will also be recorded and viewable later.
Please note all films will be DRM-protected and geo blocked for the UK. They will also host scheduled livestream Q&A’s with many of the film stars and makers. Only ticketed audience members can participate in chats and ask questions.
Watch on your laptop, device or smart TV in the comfort and safety of your home. TV viewing via apps, include Apple TV, Roku and Android TV.
Individual film tickets will go on sale in August while full festival passes are on sale NOW.
And what’s more, here are the details on the first ten announced feature film premieres for this years online event.
A focus on iconic female horror stars will feature Adrienne Barbeau (THE FOG) confronting a Faustian pact with a fracking company in the UK Premiere of UNEARTH.
Grimmfest favourite Pollyanna MacIntosh (THE WALKING DEAD,DARLIN) revs up for the European premiere of girl-gang biker revenge flick REVENGE RIDE.
34 years after TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2, Caroline Williams returns to Stretch’s midnight DJ slot for the European Premiere of vampire flick for the #Me Too era, TEN MINUTES TO MIDNIGHT.
There’s more female-centred horror in the UK premiere of Jose Luis Montesinos’ ROPES in which a wheelchair-bound woman finds herself trapped in an isolated house with a loyal service dog turned rabid.
Grimmfest continues to champion independent voices in horror, with a selection of soon-to-be cult classics. There’s the UK premiere of South African psychedelic drug-trip alien possession movie, FRIED BARRY.
FATAL ATTRACTION meets THE BLOB as Misogynous sexual mores encounter old school EC Comic style poetic justice in the UK premiere of B. Harrison Smith’s THE SPECIAL.
Body jacking parasites disrupt a polite dinner party with gory consequences in the European premiere of outrageous black comedy AN IDEAL HOST.
THE BIG CHILL meets BATTLE ROYALE as a college camping trip turns into a fight for survival in the northern premiere of TRIGGERED.
And an African American family on the run collides with cannibal Klansmen in the world premiere of DEATH RANCH, Charlie Steeds’ delirious tribute to Seventies grindhouse and blaxploitation cinema, which suddenly feels all-too-uncomfortably topical.
Seventies cult cinema is evoked, too, in the UK premiere of URUBU, Alejandro Ibáñez Nauta’s homage to his own father, Spanish genre legend Narciso Ibáñez Serrador, whose most famous work, WHO CAN KILL A CHILD? is ruthlessly reimagined for a new generation.
Grimmfest will also host an exclusive panel on Iconic women in horror, featuring some of the stars of this years selected films, talking about their careers.
Steve Balshaw, chief programmer, said: “We are selecting some fantastic genre movie premieres that people can enjoy from the safety of their own home. With so many titles already confirmed, this is shaping up to be a fine alternative.”
Simeon Halligan, festival director said: “We are also pleased that our key Sponsor ‘Horror Channel’ are able to continue their support throughout 2020, enabling us to put on an amazing online celebration of genre cinema”.
