Allow us to clear your confusion

WHEN DOES THE CHATTANOOGA FILM FESTIVAL HAPPEN?

CFF 2018 runs from Thursday, April 5 through Sunday, April 8, generally starting at 10am except for our Opening Night on Thursday, April 5. You can find more info about when things start on our Schedule & Event pages.

WHERE DOES THE FESTIVAL TAKE PLACE?

All 2018 screenings, panels and workshops will take place at the Chattanooga Theatre Centre in Downtown Chattanooga. You can find locations of special events and parties on our Schedule, Events and Locations pages.

We will have three screens at the Chattanooga Theatre Centre (CTC). They will all play a film at once; then there's a short period in-between the next block of films. All three theaters start their films at the same time. We will have a schedule that plainly lays out what film is playing in what theater, so you can see conflicting times across theaters.

Afterparties will be held in uniquely Chattanooga locales soon to be announced; All films will take place at the CTC is our only venue. The times, information and locations will be released when we release our final schedule a little closer to the festival but in the meantime we can absolutely tell you that the furthest venue away isn’t even a 7 minute drive from the CTC.

WHAT FILMS ARE YOU PLAYING?

We release our films in waves in March leading up to the festival. The press releases are available in our Press section and the listings of films are available on the Films section of this website as the waves are published.

HOW DO THE BADGES WORK?

A badge is a non-transferable credential worn by the badge holder that allows the bearer certain festival privileges:

  • VIP badge holders can secure seats at any screening at least 15 minutes prior to the start time, as well as entrance to any and all film screenings, workshops, parties, or other Festival events.
  • Daily Wrist bands act as a VIP badge for the given day the wrist band was purchased.

WHERE DO I PICK UP MY BADGE?

Badges are available at the CFF Launch Party (time & location TBA) and at the CFF Box Office at the Chattanooga Theatre Centre beginning April 5, 2018.

WHAT FILMS ARE YOU PLAYING?
