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. And after long and serious discussion, Grimmfest will be going ahead in a new format for 2020 – offering a roster of feature film premieres and shorts programmes across a new online platform.

Grimmfest’s live event at the Odeon Great Northern, Manchester, will be postponed until spring 2021. But fear not, a new online alternative “virtual festival” is set to run from 7 – 11 October 2020 and will present over 19 features, two short film showcases, and an exclusive Q&A with the Master of Horror himself, Mick Garris, who will also be receiving a Lifetime achievement award.

The organisers of Grimmfest have already released info on the first selection of premieres that will screen as part of the new venture and now comes the official artwork for this years event – check it out below; and look out for news on the full festival line-up tomorrow!
