ARROW FRIGHTFEST POSTPONES 5-DAY AUGUST BANK HOLIDAY EVENT PLANS IN PLACE TO RETURN IN OCTOBER
Due to the continuing COVID-19 restrictions and the recommended social distancing rules currently in place in the UK, the Arrow FrightFest’s traditional five-day event in August has been rescheduled to the end of October 2020.
The need to keep FrightFesters and filmmakers safe in these unprecedented times plus the atmosphere reducing capacity restrictions in cinemas once they reopen has been the main driving force behind the decision. Details are still being finalised, but the plan is to extend the traditional FrightFest Halloween one day event to multiple days.
Alan Jones, co-director, said “Sadly, we won’t be able to come together and celebrate our 21st year in the summer but rest assured, we will make our London Halloween event one to remember. FrightFest has always been about the genre community joining together, not just to embrace films but to demonstrate our unique spirit of supportive closeness”.
Details on dates, venues, films and ticketing for the Halloween event will be made available in due course.
