Get your popcorn ready. More than 20 additional films were added to the Chattanooga Film Festival lineup Tuesday as a part of a second wave announcement from organizers.

The 2018 Chattanooga Film Festival will be held at the Chattanooga Theatre Centre April 5–8.

The first wave of 17 films and events was announced on Feb. 22 and with the festival less than a month away organizers are plowing ahead with a mix of fantasy, horror, documentary and animated films.


VIP badges are on sale now. The badge offers priority seating for every screening at the festival. Holders will also get tickets to special events—including the annual boat party.

Opening night wristbands are also on sale for $75. 

In addition to the second wave of films, organizers announced the annual CFF Southern Belle Riverboat party. The event features music by Jeff the Brotherhood and Teddy & the Roughriders.

Chattanooga Whiskey will also partner with CFF to host Punk on the Rocks, a whiskey-meets-punk rock party in honor of “The Ranger,” an official CFF 2018 selection.
