Chattanooga Film Fest announces opening and closing night films

Respect Cinema.

Press Release

After holding one of the first successful virtual film festivals in May of 2020, the Chattanooga Film Festival (CFF) returns again virtually this year June 24 – 29, 2021.

Kicking things off opening night is the world premiere of Dark Sky Film’s Scenes From an Empty Church. Though audiences have already started to see films that take place during the pandemic or use the fear, loss of hope and isolation it has caused to inform their stories, no film has managed so brilliantly to ponder the long-term effects of Covid-19 on the human condition than this film. Director Onur Tukel also manages to find hope and humor along the way, and CFF is lucky to be able to set the tone for this year’s festival with such a smart and important piece of filmmaking.

Jacob Gentry is a filmmaker whose work CFF programmers have been following ever since his SXSW screening of The Signal in 2007. Closing out this year is his newest film, Broadcast Signal Intrusion. Gentry’s latest juggles genres with ease and will conjure up the same sort of mysterious and paranoid conspiracy-driven thrills as classic films like Blow-Up and Videodrome while offering up truly nightmarish imagery sure to please horror fans.

Tickets for the Chattanooga Film Fest can be purchased here.
