FrightFest Cancels October Physical Event

Sadly, due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation and increasing restrictions, the Arrow Video FrightFest event planned at Cineworld in Leicester Square in October has been cancelled.

A four-day event will instead take place online between October 22nd - 25th.

The August main FrightFest festival took place to great success as a digital event. The October event will feature 40 features and will take the place of the in-cinema festival and the proposed Halloween event.

FrightFest co-director Ian Rattray, said: “It’s with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of the Cineworld event. Although cinemas are not affected by the new hospitality rules, it was the tipping point in terms of what kind of event we were comfortable in presenting to the fans. And with the threat of further London lockdown rules being imposed, it was felt the best plan was to move everything online

The full line-up will be announced on October 1st and tickets will be available on the same day.
